Separate your TV and Movie downloads

Postby clinton.hall » 03 Dec 2012 04:53

This shows an example of how to configure your categories/black holes in order to segregate your movies and tv etc so that CPS renamer does not label other material as _unknown_...

The goal here is to separate the completed downloads based on category or the sub directory that the nzb/torrent file is dropped in.


SABnzbd

In settings, downloaders, SABnzbd, set the category = movies
In SickBeard settings, set the SABnzbd category = TV

In SABnzbd, config, categories, create a movies category with folder/path = movies and a TV category with folder/path = TV

Now, when downloaded, tv files are extracted to completed/TV and movies are extracted to completed/movies (where completed is your completed download directory as specified in SABnzbd folder settings)

Set SickBeard post processing to look at completed/TV and set the CouchPotato renamer "From" directory to be downloaded/movies

All should now work as wanted...

BTW, if using headphones, category = music and follow the same process


Torrents / Black Hole

In settings, downloaders, Black Hole, set the destination as black-hole/movies
In SickBeard, black hole settings, set the destination as black-hole/TV

In your downloader set the watched directory (black hole) as black-hole as per the above.

Now, when downloaded, tv files are extracted to completed/TV and movies are extracted to completed/movies (where completed is your completed download directory as specified in your downloader)

(This whole processes is often referred to as "black-hole sub-directories", and is supported by transmission, utorrent (possibly with an add-on script?), and sabnzbd... it is a standard set-up.

Set SickBeard post processing to look at completed/TV and set the CouchPotato renamer "From" directory to be downloaded/movies

All should now work as wanted...

BTW, if using headphones, sub-directory = music and follow the same process

NZBGet

In Settings -> Paths: Set your MainDir and DestDir
In Settings -> Categories: Make sure you have a category for 'movies' and 'tv'
Edit the default NZBGet Post-Processing config file appropriately (It's easy)

Recommended: For a better Post-Processing script, download the nzbToCouchPotato script from here:
https://github.com/thorli/nzbToCouchPotato
This script will can be used as your everyday Post-Processing script.

If you have SickBeard installed, you should have a file similar to:
../sickbeard/autoProcessTV/sabToSickBeard.py
You may edit the nzbToCouchPotato's post-processing.conf file to point the your sabToSickBeard.py directory
Despite saying "sabToSickBeard" this works fine with NZBGet with no modifications.
