binseach and nzbtvseeker are full of brand new shows that are incomplete. I miss matrix already

The indexers have nothing to do with a file being complete or not on usenet. That lies entirely with you news provider. Personally I think Astraweb is having propagation issues again like they did a couple weeks ago.

No, and they disabled me from going VIP too.

well what would worry about if they sold out is they got your details if you paid to join and did they save all your searches and what you downloaded as they could turn all that over.

So you only worry about that now that they are shut down? I would have thought the time to worry about such a thing was when you signed up, or when you paid, or when you downloaded the NZB.

No one should worry about it. Downloading a xml (NZB) file, the last time I checked, wasn't illegal.

then what do the red numbers mean on their website that say incomplete and when I try to dl the file, I get articles not found mixed in with good articles?

that never happened with nzbmatrix

Just so I'm clear, the incompletes showing up on binsearch are due to the uploader's service having propagation issues, is that correct?

Yep there is definitely something wrong with posting. Most people use Astraweb to post and I think they are having major problems yet again. Another reason why I think Astraweb is going down hill fast.

Yes, another propagation issue last night coming out of Astra as can be seen from binsearch around that time (lots of red numbers for christmas time). Starting to get really old.

Well, I had a Newzbin account which was by far the most complete service when it was up, then it closed. I figured, oh well, still have Nzbmatrix for certain stuff, now its closed.

Any every site closed their registrations.

At this point, might just have to set up Newznab just to index the TV content/groups.

Pretty odd timing on Nzbmatrix's move though.

I really hate searching through headers again, I'd have to install something like Newsleecher instead of using Grabit.

I like all the NZB sites closing for new users. do they really think for a min the copy right folks did not makes accounts on those sites weeks or months ago? They can all still be reported to paypal to stop payments.

I've also been thinking about it, but how does Newznab cope with posts where the subject is gibberish as seen in most of the posts here - »www.binsearch.info/browse.php?bg···ltimedia

I setup an instance of newznab+ last night and am starting to play with it. Some of the regex's that come with the paid version are crap from what I can tell. My initial impression is not great, it seems like the developers have tried to add more features than what is necessary of an indexer. A good example, it automatically tries to pull full descriptions and ratings of tv shows down with each release it finds instead of just adding links for additional info. If it can't find additional information, it might flag the release as not being legit and trash the results.

If anyone wants in that can assist with this, we can make it a split ownership project. Its currently being hosted on ESX platform in Atlanta at a friends house. If enough people want to dig in on this and split the cost, maybe move it to the cloud?

How much space and bandwidth does it take up to index a few active groups?

I did 1 day's retention for about 30 groups and it was 300MB. I'm in the process of backilling to 30 days right now and probably further for more.

I'm a professional Linux/Unix Systems Administrator. I don't think I could answer that without bias.

It was relatively easy and the spots that hung up, they handed out commands to dish out.

That's not a biggie. But they only accept bitcoins, which is a deal-breaker for most.

I had to make an account for this. When Newzbin went down I went right to Nzbmatrix. I haven't been lost in a long time. Is the only point of indexing for when you're looking for something that's been up awhile? I haven't manually searched for anything in a long time (very rarely). I've been using NewsLeecher since version 1 way back and I've always had supersearch paid for.

Mostly I would just use Newzbin and then Nzbmatrix in the mornings to search for the shows I watch since my wife sucks up the dang dvr all the time with House Hunters and crap like that.

With Movies, I know I can keep up with videoeta.com as far as what has been release or will be released. I'm not sure of how to see that with TV shows. I mean like what I need is a quick list of "what was on TV last night - or posted in the last 24 hours" without all the crap.

OK so I'm weird and mainly watch SciFi type shows but I also listen to a lot of country music. Like, last night some American Country award show was on Fox I think it was, or maybe NBC (wife had the DVR blocked out of course). If NZBMatrix had been up that would have been simple. With Newsleecher Super Search, I don't see it. I've been doing this long enough to know that an award show would be up by now.

(not that I watch but going by memory from last night) - that Michael Bouble (sp? whatever) had a christmas special on last night, and I know the Voice was on last night. Those are all missing as well but I see Hawaii 5-0 and How I Met Your Mother.

Right now I've trying Superseach against 1 day with size filters from 1,000,000 KB - 2,000,000 KB to try to narrow things down to h.264 size files for 40 minute tv shows.
