    There’s a new show starting on the BBC, it’s called “Life”

    It needs an entry in ALT_SHOW_NAMES

    “Life (UK)”:[“Life 2009”]

    Mr. Ashysoft-

    I’ve noticed that Leechr won’t find some shows. I think I narrowed the issue down to NZBIndex’s handling of negation operators. It doesn’t appear to support the !720p search term. It searches for it as a literal, which never exists in the filename.

    Ah, found it on their forums. They use a minus sign instead of the exclamation point. Appetite for a release?

    On another note, I have found the new search engines deliver failed nzb’s more often than the original. Is there any way that Leechr could figure out if there was a failure and pull the next available nzb? On SABnzbd+, it looks like ‘_FAILED_Dexter S04E05’ as the directory name in the completed directory. Not sure about others. Kinda a reach ask, but it’d make the process so much more automated. Thanks as always.

      Hi Slug,

      Leechr automatically converts !’s to -‘s for NZBIndex searches.
      What shows are you having problems with?

    Any chance of getting newzbin.com support?

    I was wondering if I could do a feature request.

    I, for instance, love the show Fifth Gear. It is a great show and I want Leechr to download all the latest episodes. It is currently at season 16.

    My problem is, that I haven’t yet seen the first three seasons (aired in 2002 to 2003). They are impossible to acquire. And now, Leechr tries to download all three seasons each and every night, which is quit time-consuming and rather silly.

    I would love to see a feature in Leechr so it can ignore episodes from more than 3 months ago.
