NewsBin is crap when compared to SabNZBd mate. I switch from NewsBin to SabNZBd. A lot of people switch from GrabIt/NewsBin to SabNZBd. It's worth it.

I tried it, hated the web interface.. switched back to grabit. Would rather see the parts download, and not have to upload my download to open the nzb.

You can tell Sabnzbd to monitor a folder for nzb files. If your browser is set to save files to your desktop, then you can set it to there.

There is also the nzbdstatus addon for Firefox.

If you click on the NZB downloading in the SABnzbd window in your browser, you can see the individual parts downloading:

Didn't know I could do that. I use chrome.

What's wrong with that?!

Also, if SABnzbd is set as the default program to open .nzb files, then why not just choose to open the file directly from your browser (if you are downloading from a website and not using a news reader...) so that it launches SABnzbd; rather than saving it locally and then uploading the .nzb file for download??

I, personally (as well as a lot of others on here), swear by SABnzbd!


I didn't know I could open them with the sabnzb program, I thought it all had to be done through the web interface. I also didn't know I could click on the download to see the parts. I'd personally prefer it if it were a standalone program instead of web-driven though. Just out of personal preference.

This wasn't really needed as far as I followed this discussion, nothing of that was close to happening, or has something been deleted already and I'm just a lame nut missing an infringing post's short lifespan? ^^

Probably doesn't hurt to quote the rules, though, albeit I guess we all can sing them asleep ;) :laugh:

I've been using Newsbin for 7 years or so and I love it. Buy it once, free updates for life.

No mentions of Newsbin Pro yet? OK... http://www.newsbin.com/ Been using it for years and love it enough to have actually paid for it. Great for downloading stuff with my Astraweb account, automatically handles RARs too which is handy. It's also very regularly updated, and it's easy to get hold of the developer on their forums too.


Ya i'm surprised Newsbin wasn't mentioned sooner. I have the same configuration as well as I pay for newsbins search, it's fantastic!

Ah mate, you need to try it again. The first time I tried it, I hated it and went straight back to GrabIt/NewsBin. Gave it another chance shortly after that and it turned out I was the problem not the program.

You can set it to run as a service, so it'll boot up with Windows (or even install it as a service on your WHS/NAS box). You can set it to 'watch' a folder and whenever a .NZB file appears in there it will automatically get added to the download queue. Not to mention that it has built in auto-repair, auto-unrar, auto-unzip and a crap load of other features. One of my favourite things is because it's web based, you can access it from anywhere (if you set it all up correctly). So I can be out and about and check on my downloads. Or I can add something remotely to the download queue.

Well dang! I wasn't expecting this to get so big so fast :D.

Well, the general consensus is for raw NZB Downloading - sabNZBd is the best.
And for Browsing - Newsleecher.

I'm going to setup Newsleecher on a separate VM on my ESXi Server to test out. I'm also going to checkout AltBinz

Great little addon. I don't use it for monitoring at all, it simply automates the adding of LEGAL FILES to my SABNZBD server from a bunch of different sites.

There are a couple of similar things out there, but this one seems to be bestest.

Also: Sickbeard with API support is where it is at. Remember boys and girls, pirates are bad.. (NINJAS RULE!) (Totes not troll bait >.>)

I've tried GrabIt, NewsBin and NewsLeecher and NewsLeecher is my favourite of the bunch.
