CouchPotato configure Synology

couchpotato first time ready

Once you’ve opened CouchPotato. With your internet browser. Scroll down and click “I’m ready to start the awesomeness”.

couchpotato settings

couchpotato-advance-settings

At the top right you see a slider. Slide it to the right. So the bar turns red.

General CouchPotato

Under the tablad general. Please fill in your details below.

Username

Password

Port This is standard at 5050. But I always change these to the same range as my NZBGet. So port 8086 is going to be my.

Searcher Couchpotato

Now we go to the tablad Searcher. Here is a indication of which source CouchPotato should start looking for.

moviesearch-couchpotato

You can see the option here Search for movies even before there is an ETA. Enabling this will probably get you a lot of fakes. If you leave this out then it may be that movies that have good quality are not yet downloaded. This is because they are not officially available yet. You will notice this especially that Webdl downloads. These usually appear earlier than the official release date

The choice is your own to turn this on or not. If you turn it on, you’re more likely to get fake downloads.

Under Newznab, you have to give up a Newznab provider. See this page for a list of NewzNab servers. With the extra Score you can indicate which CoucPotato should try first. But watch out! If you also use other programs, such as Sonarr or SickBeard. Do you have enough API requests.

NZBClub and Binsearch I advise you not. Because then a lot of junk is downloaded.

Category CouchPotato

Now we go to the tablad Category.

Now you have to give up the following to your own taste. This is what I gave up. So I don’t want 3D movies and HD-TS. But i’d like a DTS audio track.
