SABnzbd download fails from Newznab provider

If you turn this on, download SABnzbd another version of, for example, a movie or TV series. If it fails the first time. This work in combination with automatic download ing via, for example, CouchPotato or Sonarr.

This just works. If the following requirements are met, the following requirements will be met.

  1. You’re using an automatic download program. Like, for example. Sonarr, SickBeard,SickRage, Radarr or Couchpotato.
  2. The Newznab provider needs to support it. As an example Usenet crawler.

You turn this on inSABnzbd under Settings. And then Special. And then you have to turn on the next check mark new_nzb_on_failure (off)
