We are going to configure Medusa on a Qnap system. So that TV series are automatically downloaded from the newsgroups.
Before you start this tutorial, the NZBGet program must already be installed. And you must be able to download from the newsgroups. If that is not the case. then follow first NZBGet tutorial.
Configure Medusa Settings
Open your web browser. And go to Medusa http://ip-address:8897
Click on the gear icon at the top right.
Go to General.
Click New. And add all TV series folders.
And click onSave Changes.
Set as Default ensures that by default, every series is added here. It is possible to adjust this per series as later.
search Configure Medusa
Let’s set Medusa’s search settings.
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 retention.
Turn onUse Failed Downloads and Delete Failed.
If a download fails dab 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 Usenet.
If your device cannot handle x265 files. Then you can fill this in at Undesired words.
At Preferred words you enter x264. Of juist x265. These files are much smaller. But the quality is no less.
Now on Save Changes.
Set up NZB Search Medusa
Go to NZB search.
Check the Search NZBs box.
Enter the correct data from your NZBGet program.
Default login is nzbget and password also nzbget. Unless you modified this. I recommend to do that.
Search providers Instellen
Now go to Search providers.
And choose Configure costum newznab providers. Most built-in providers are only for torrenting. I recommend that you don’t use Binsearch. You will probably get a lot of unsatisfactory downloads.
See Newznab providers for list.
