    NewsGroupDirect (NGD) has been solid for about 18months for me. I tried UseNetServer (UNS) but it was consistently slow. NGD consistently hits 28mbps which is the top of my connection

    The internode service cancellation is the end of an era :( I was leaving internode at the end of the month moving to Aussie Broadband and NBN. I've had a pretty good run.

    I got the email as well, I think I'll probably stick with them, the speeds have been decent for me (7-8MB/s on 100/40) after coming from UsenetServer. Will have a browse around to see if there's any other good options first though ..

    My Astraweb block account ran out again, so giving the Usegroup Ninja a crack. Speeds are better than the 5MBs I was getting with Astraweb. Getting 6.5MBs on UNN, via a Telecube 100/40 Vocus account...

    Looks like an improvement straight away. And how easy is that signup process! Wow :)

    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)?
