Error everytime it finds a download.

Post by badasstoucan » Wed Jul 25, 2018 11:08 pm

I havent gotten a download to work just yet so my guess is that I am still missing something. Whenever I think it finds one it throws this error before it gets to the point of adding the torrent.

Code: Select all

2018-07-25 18:04:29	ERROR	Uncaught exception: Traceback (most recent call last):

Ive seen some other posts with this error and it appeared to be either a post processing thing or sometimes an issue with the publisher. I have tried with post processing turned on and off. And multiple comics so im not sure all the publishers are messed up. Like I said im probably missing something. Thanks for any help you can provide.

According to that error, your black hole directory option doesn't have a value set in the configuration (Configuration / Download settings / Usenet (Black Hole) / Black Hole Directory), so it can't save the file properly.

Thanks! This led me to fix the root issue which was, turn off experimental. I didnt realize experimental was usernet only. I only had black hole selected cause it was the only one that ran the farhest :lol:
Found another post on here explaining the nzb dowloads were coming from 'experimental' , turned that off and boom im off to the races.

Thanks again for the help and for this awesome tool!
