    So... my nzb.su vip status just ran out. What's the current state of indexers? They've been adequate but not amazing, anything worth switching to from a performance/value perspective? I gave up on nzbget a couple of years ago because they had three months of retardedness

    Would have been really interesting if you also had a nzbgeek account in that mix :)

    What is the TL;DR on getting access to the omgwtfnzbs site?

    /I've got an nzbgeek account and it's okay for the most - however it fails on finding older stuff that has been DMCAd (manually poking around I can get by, just that it's, yeah, manually :D )

    Your failure rate of nzb.su seems rather high.

    I too have been using Sonarr for the last 12 months and I have to admit, I'm really enjoying it's automation. I tried installed Radarr last night and I'm having an issue with mapping it to my network share drive. I recall having the same issue with Sonarr, but I've no idea how to get around it.

    I've tried the netowork path //DS1815/Media/Movies/ and I've also tried mapping it to my K:\ with no success. A quick Google tells me I need to run nzbdrone.exe which I did, but no luck.

    Any suggestions?

    Whoops. I've got my slashes leaning the wrong way, but the message remains the same.

    I did do something silly on this particular Windows PC where I think I've wonked the user accounts, but that doesn't answer the question as to why my Sonarr service works just fine? (it's pointed to \\DS1815\Media\TV)

    Which account is Sonarr running as? (check services.msc). Is there anything in the radarr logs (system tab)?

    Oddly enough, Sonarr doesn't appear in the list (but it's definitely running). Radarr is there and under "Log On As", it says Local System.

    Try changing Local System to your user account. Sonarr may be called NzbDrone in services.msc still.

    No dramas here. I get a consistent 9.5mbps on my 100mbit connection. Minimal backup usage as well. Might be worth PM'ing the NewsgroupNinja dude on reddit https://www.reddit.com/user/slinxj

    Excuse the slight thread revive.

    Mainly used for TV shows/movies? No NZBGeek? I'm surprised at the success rate of SimplyNZBs, and the failure rate of NZB.su; which provider backbone/s are you using?

    I had NZBGeek a long time ago but I think my premium expired. Yes, TV/Movies only really. I use newsgroup.ninja and usenet.farm.

    Ninja is offering a 12 month upfront sub for $40 ($3.33/monthx12, yeah??). I'm guessing that that will be US$.

    I sent them an email to change me over from the obscene $7.99 I'm currently paying :D

    Dunno how long it's been this cheap, or how long it will last.

    Also:
    https://www.reddit.com/r/usenet/wiki/providerdeals is worth a look.
