    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.

    Very quick response to my email - had a couple of replies from them last night, and all I had to do was simply enter 'specialdeal' in the promo/coupon code box on the upgrade page and that brought it down to the $40 yearly option. A few seconds later it was done.

    One of the easier usenet providers to deal with, in terms of their dashboard/portal interface. Very clean. Some are so clunky and downright hideous!

    I can see it was some time ago that you posted that, however if you see this - it might be worthwhile logging back into the NZBGeek and checking your account, as the initial premium accounts they offered/sold were lifelong, one-off payment deals. Soooo, you could still have an active account there??

    just did this - payment upfront instead of monthly... fingers crossed it's not a last minute exit scam, don't want those ninjas running off with my few extra $$

    Yep. That's why when I signed up with them a few months ago I was happy with the pay by the month. But US$40 is half that rate, and so if it lasts six months... And it's not the end of the world if it does turn out to be a scam. And if it's not, it auto-renews at the cheap rate after 12 months as well.
    Should be ok :)

    Hey Everyone,

    I am currently using NewsgroupNinja and ive just switched over to NBN, but my download speeds are still only ~140-170KB/s

    Are there any settings I need to check to improve the speeds ?

    I thought it was 50

    I have also tried with 30 as well, and still the same
