NZB Matrix is DEAD! :'(


Recommended Posts

The End...

It is with our regret to announce that NZBMATRIX had closed.

We have had to make this decision due to a very large takedown request from a company called Wiggin LLC. These represent the following: Federation Against Copyright Theft Limited ("FACT"), Paramount Home Entertainment International Limited; Sony Pictures Home Entertainment Limited; The Walt Disney Company Limited; Twentieth Century Fox Film Company Limited; Universal Pictures (UK) Limited; Warner Bros. Entertainment UK Limited.

As everyone is aware we are DMCA/Takedown notice compliant, and always have been.

Once this notice is completed we are left with an impossible task of policing our indexing bots. Even then it won't stop there, there will be follow-up notices etc.

Coupled with this is problems with payment providers, we have been through pretty much everyone out there, in the end they all pull out.

There are massive server/bandwidth costs to pay, with the payments in-stability this is a very hard task.

NZBMATRIX has never been the subject of any legal issues or threats.

Also the Usenet Indexing scene is going through some changes, with content being removed from pretty much every provider its making the existence of an indexer irrelevant if the content does not even exists anymore.

So it's time for us to bow out...

:cry:

Bugger, with newzbin dying recently again too, this makes finding a decent index site a difficult thing

Arrow has been getting removed from pretty much all usenet servers within 5-6 hours. Things are definitely changing.

NZB Royalty

Aren't these guys the pricks who password everything they index? Aren't these guys the ones who were running a similar site and then closed it down after collected a ton of 'donations', then immediatley opened NZB Royalty with the same 'donation' requirements?

nzb forums people...

Just saying...

Other than that, the aforementioned solutions are probably good.

This sucks so bad! I couldn't believe it this morning. Thankfully Sickbeard has its own indexer so I can continue on with that for now; but for movies this sucks. Guess I better setup Couch Potato.

I guess NZB Forums are the best places now.

Won't be happening in this household, but in this country it's the only realistic legal alternative. I'd rather have nothing than give Apple money.

I already have a huge media collection up in iCloud, so for me it's the next step. Might as well get rid of my unRAID server too, no need for 8TB of storage now! Lol.

Raspberry Pi + XBMC + UnRAID NAS. But without usenet, that all seams kinda pointless

As long as newsleecher has super search all is good in my world... don't mind paying for the app rather than chase indexing sites

Usenets not going anywhere, some providers are complying with DMCA requests to remove content. These auto indexing sites do Usenet more harm than good anyway.

      Hi, I have a log from a newsgroup NNTP header from a newsgroup message
      containing 3 string/numbers which I would like to further investigate
      Xref: news.newsserver.net newsgroupname:<NUMBER>
      Injection-Info:logging-data="<NUMBER>"
      AND
      Message-ID: <STRING>@subnewsserver.newsserver.net
      is there a tool/script/program to query remote NNTP server
      subnewsserver.newsserver.net / newsserver.net with those <NUMBER>/<STRING>
      that would return more info ?
      NOTE:
      in order to abride "Disallowed and unacceptable posts." rules I'v replaced
      <NUMBER> replacing a 5 digit decimal number     regex: /[0-9]{5}/
      <STRING> replacing a 13 character string    regex: /[a-z0-9\$]{13}/
      newsserver replacing news server name
      subnewsserver replacing sub news server name
      newsgroupname replacing news group name name
      thank's in advance :)

      I have been using newsleecher, however it seems unstable when trying to get headers from some groups (program stops responding) does anyone have a recommendation for an alternative?
