When the Spots are loaded. Then we first go to Beeld. And then to Kolommen. Select Datum, (date) Omvang (size) and possibly the Tag. This is very useful. Because you can often see from the date (datum) how long something has been on SpotNet. And then you know if you have enough retention to download it through your news server. However, this is not always the case. Because it can be. That whoever spots it on SpotNet. That its is not the uploader.

The size is also very handy, so you can immediately see whether the format is correct and it says something about the quality of, for example, a movie.

Personally, I’m not a big fan of using SpotNet’s built-in download client. Because SpotNet often crashes. And often has an outdated download client. And then it may be that not everything is unpacked.

Fortunately, we can adjust this. You do this by going to Bewerken .(edit) And then choose Downloadknop (downloadbuttun). And then check NZB opslaan (Save nzb file).

SpotNet uses SABnzbd underwater. Make sure you always have the latest SpotNet installed. Otherwise, extracting NZB files may not go well.

Not all SABnzbd settings can be done in SpotNet. Therefore, it may be useful to open SABnzbd from SpotNet.
