We are going to configure Medusa on a Debian system. So that TV series are automatically downloaded from the newsgroups.
Before starting this tutorial, the NZBGet program must already be installed and running. if that is not the case see the NZBGet tutorial.
Create TV folders for Medusa
Create a tv folder.
Granted everyone rights to the tv1 map.
chmod -R tv1
Configure Medusa Settings
Now open Medusain your browser. http://ip-adress:8897
Click on the gear icon at the top right. And go to General.
Click New. And add all TV series folders. Which you made.
Don’t forget Save Changes.
Set as Default ensures that by default, every series is added here. You can still adjust this separately for each series.
Configure Medusa Search
Now go to Search settings.
Adjust the Usenet retention. This is often set too low. You can consult the website of your Usenet provider for the correct setting.
Turn onUse Failed Downloads and Delete Failed.
If a download fails, a new nzb file is downloaded from a newznab provider. And the failed download will be cleaned up.
If you want to download foreign language series. then you have to remove your foreignlanguage here. The chance that these will be downloaded is small. Because these are very rarely posted in the newsgroups.
If your device cannot handle x265 files. Then you can fill this in at Undesired words.
With Preferred words you enter x265.
Then press Save Changes.
