SickRage search settings

sickrage search settings

At the top right,click Search Settings .

Adjust the following settings. On this page.

Check cleans every Put this on 4. Because 24 hours is way too much. Usually a clean one appears faster than 24 hours. You should always get a clean one. Because if there’s a propper out. Then there’s something wrong with the original. For example, sound is missing or a piece of image.

Usenet retention Put it on the number of days your usenet provider supports. Usually that’s a lot more than 500 that this standard is on. This also increases the likelihood of finding something.

Ignore words Delete here dutch. You can add the following suggestions. x265, aac.2.0 Watch out! There should be a comma between the words every time. X265 doesn’t get along with most media players and 2.0 sound is not done. Unless you’re looking at an ipad or something.

The more likely your series is to be fully downloaded. See here some free Newnnab providers. You must create an account for each Newznab provider. If you’ve added as many as you can. Then choose Save.

sickrage-search order

Now go to the Search Engine Ordertasheet. Put SickBeard on top. Because this one has no Api limit but also no Backlog. This means that old episodes are often not found in this search engine. Unless they are re-logged there. Other NZB search engines often do have an API limit. The higher it limes, the higher you put it in the list.

SickRage Subtitles

Now we go to the top left to the subtitles.

sickrage subtitles

Put to Search Subtitles. Please enter Dutch at Subtitle Languages. For Dutch subs. And English, if you want this one. Set the Search Frequency Subtitles to 5.

Go to the tablad Subtitles search engines. And put the following check marks to Addic7ed, Opensubtitles,and Podnapsisi. And also put them in this order by dragging them. The rest doesn’t matter. Because there are no Dutch subtitles there. You could be English if you want this one.
