This project has been abandonedCheck the Sick Beard project for my new PVR (currently in ALPHA)NOTE:
I've abandoned this hellaVCR mod in favor of writing my own program from scratch. The development versions are available as a branch in this project's SVN repository. The program is nearly done, just a few bugs to fix and I need to redo the HTML interface. My hellaVCR mod is still available in the trunk but I won't be updating it any longer. Below are some of the features of the new program I'm writing:
User can add shows directly from a thetvdb.com dropdown list Searches for NZBs on newzbin.com, tvnzb.com, and tvbinz.net so your downloads will start as soon as possible Supports shows which air daily (The Daily Show/The Colbert Report, Late Night shows, etc) Includes a "download first available" option which will download the first episode of any format and then re-download when your preferred format is released for those episodes that you just can't wait to watch Allows you to link shows directly to Newzbin reports to guarantee no false positives Scrapes show info from thetvdb.com AND tvrage.com, allows you to specify your preference Supports black-hole NZB queueing as well as sending directly to SABnzbd+ and HellaNZB Allows NZB searching directly from the HTML interface (no need to go to the command-line and run it to check for a certain show) Can notify you of new downloads through XBMC, twitter, or email Works even when thetvdb.com/tvrage.com are down (as long as it retrieved the show info at some point in the past) Here's the info for the old hellaVCR mod (available in the trunk still):
Current version: 0.6.0-mm (branch of hellaVCR 0.6)
I started using hellaVCR 0.5 with sabnzbd and found it was a great start but there were many features I wanted that it didn't support. So I went ahead and added all the features I thought it was missing, and this is the result.
NOTE: This is not release quality code. Features will be checked in here without exhaustive testing and will probably contain bugs. If you want a stable release go download the official hellaVCR release.
You can see the changes in the WhatsChanged document in the wiki. Note that you will need to update your config file to include the new fields I've added. Some of the features added are:
the ability to use tvbinz.net and tvnzb.com for NZBs (MUCH faster indexing than Newzbin, usually 2+ hours earlier) tons of formatting improvements on the index page, and the ability to try downloading a single show SABnzbd+ support (now partly available in the 0.6 release) XBMC notifications (now available in the 0.6 release) have hellaVCR-mm download first available episode regardless of format (and then re-download the desired format when it becomes available) per-day logging to disk without requiring stdout redirect This is basically just a branch of hellaVCR, but since the hellaVCR code isn't in a repository it can't actually be a branch, hehe. I'm constantly fixing bugs so I'm not going to bother putting up a zip to download - just check it out of svn. Check out the change list to see what's been added recently.
To check out of svn in OSX/linux just follow the instructions on the checkout page. In Windows the easiest way is:
Install TortoiseSVN Create an empty folder, right click, SVN Checkout.. Paste in the URL (http://hellavcr-mm.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/), hit OK. Done!
