Adjust the Usenet retention to the retention of your Usenet provider. You can often find this information on the website of your usenet provider. By default, this is often set too low.

failed downloads retry medusa

Check the following two check boxes:

Use Failed Downloads

Delete Failed

This ensures that if a download fails. That a new nzb file is being searched. On the Newznab providers.

And Delete failed takes care of it. That the failed download is deleted.

Medusa ignore synology

You can remove foreign language if you speak it. Otherwise, foreign series may not be downloaded.

set medusa words to filter

If your media player cannot handle x265 content. Then you can fill that in at Undesired words.

With Preferred words you enter x264 or x265. Because the advantage of X265 is that it takes up less space on your hard disk. But the quality of the tv show. Is just as good.

And click onSave Changes.

Go to NZB search.
