What's the deal with shows not downloading automatically?

Postby schalicto » Fri Feb 10, 2012 5:15 pm

I'm still fairly new to sickbeard. Been using it for about 6 months. I've noticed that some shows just wont download automatically for me. When I click on the show it displays past and upcoming episodes, the dates are correct, but it doesn't automatically search for a show when the air date shows up.

I've notice that the shows it happens to don't have a 'Next Ep' date in the show list on the main page of sickbeard. An example I'm currently experiencing this with is Justified.

Also, the show is in an 'active' and 'continuing' status and not paused or ended or otherwise.

Is it my configuration? Is it sickbeard? is it thetvdb? How can I fix it?

YOU need to have episodes in the database.
Make sure your pC is on at 3 AM , as that's when it updates the database with new episodes.

Without episode informatio it can notd ownload anything

My computer is on at all times. I don't have this problem with all shows... just several of them.

Check your quality settings for that shows. Maybe you accidentally set it to "initially download: SD DVD + replace with 720p BluRay" or similar.

What search providers are you using?

And an extract from your log file when the new episode first showed up on the RSS feeds would be very helpful. This could be a challenge, since the log files are overwritten every 70k lines.

The quality setting for the show is HD.

I think I might have figured it out. I had the directory for it set to the wrong location. I don't use sickbeard post processing or the show folders that it creates, so sometimes I delete them.

Maybe someone can explain why that would have an affect on this situation...

Anybody else experiencing this with Justified? It's set to download in HD for me, no different from most shows. Season 2 seemed to work OK, but season 3 has been a bust. The show is shown as 'Continuing' but the next episode never shows on the Coming Episodes page and I have to manually grab it from a newsgroup (I'm using nzbmatrix, but since the show isn't displaying in the Coming Episodes bit, I'm not sure this can be the issue).

Thanks

Try to delete the show from SB & re-add it .. see what happens then.

Show works OK for me

I'm having the same issue with at least 2 entries on my list. I can manually search and find the episodes and high quality just fine, but sick beard seems unable to fine them. The info log says it's looking, but there are no further updates as to whether anything was found. It will find and perform post-processing on them properly if I manually download them, but I seem to be having issues with the search. NZBMatrix.
