In this CouchPotato guide configure Synology NZBGet. We’re going to configure CouchPotato in combination with NZBGet. To automatically download the movies you want from the newsgroups.
Create CouchPotato download folder
Before we start configuring CouchPotato. Let’s create a folder first. To store your movies.
You can skip this step. If you already have a folder that’s storing your movies.
Go to the beginning screen of your Synology NAS. And opt for File Station.
Click Create. And then create new shared folder.
Enter a name. And choose a location. Once you’ve done that, click OK.
Click Local Users. And choose Local Groups.
You need to download the group sc-downloadhere. read and write rights. If you don’t do this. Then CouchPotato can’t write anything away from this.
You need to check users’ read/write rights.
Of course, also give the Administrators group access.
Then click OK. Your folder has now been created. And you can see him on the left.
Open NZBGet. By default, this is “http://ip-adres-nas:6789/”
Go to Settings.
Then go to Category.
There is a Category movies by default. Use this one! Report to Destdir. Please indicate the location here. From the folder you just created. This is where your movies are stored.
Configure Synolgy CouchPotato
If you’ve opened CouchPotato, through your web browser. Then the first time a wizard will open. “http://ip-adres-synology:5050/wizard/”
We’re skipping this wizard. This is because of the advanced options. Not available in the wizard.
Scroll all the way down.
Click I’m ready to start the awesomeness!
Now click on the next page at the bottom left of the gear. And then you choose Settings.
To the top right you can see a slider show advanced. Slide it aside so that the bar turns red.
Port This is standard at 5050.
Enter a user’s name and password here. To secure your CouchPotato.
Even though, CouchPotato can only be approached locally.
Now, on the Searchertab.
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 turn this on, you’ll have a chance of more fake downloads. But there are more movies that are good.
Put these on Usenet. And put the retention on the retention of your Usenet provider. This information can often be found on your Usenet provider’s website.
Scroll down. Turn on Newznab.
Under Newznab, you have to give up a Newznab provider. For a list of see NewzNab servers. With the extra Score. Can you indicate which CoucPotato, first to try. But watch out! If you also use other programs such as Sickbeard, Headphones,or SickRage. Then you do need enough API requests. If only you have a very limited number. Then use multiple different newznab providers.
Do not use Binsearch and NZBClub. Because then you get a lot of crap.
Go to the tablad downloaders.
Turn on the check mark NZBget.
Please enter the data of your NBGet. And click on Test NZBGet.
Don’t change the category!
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.
Now you have to give up the following as you wish. This is what I gave up. For example, I don’t want 3D movies and HD-TS but i would like a DTS audio track.

Ignored TC720P,HD-TS,SBS,german, french, truefrench, danish, swedish, spanish, italian, korean, dubbed, swesub, korsub, dksubs, vain
Now go to the tablad Qualities.
You should also set this up to your own taste.
This is wax I did. The first is the most important thing.
1080p Tick Finish.
72p Tick Finish.
If you turn it on the finish mark. Then CouchPotato stops looking for better quality.
Now we go to the tablad Notifications. Here you can give a signal to your media player. To update. So your movie libary is updated with your newly downloaded movies.
I use Kodi so I give up the following.
So host ip-address-of-your-media player:8084 This is not localhost. Since your Kodi is not active on your Synology.
Username from Kodi.
Password by Kodi.
Turn on Only First.
you are now done with this couchpotato configuration manual Synology Nzbget.
You can now add movies in CouchPotato.
