Since the FireTV is always on it is perfectly suited as a Download centre when combined with an external HDD.

At the moment I'm runnig NZBGet mobile to download media from usenet to my external HDD which is mounted using Stickmount. By installing python for android I managed to get VideoSort to work, which is a script which automatically recognizes the TV-Show/Movie for you and names it accordingly, moves it and cleans up any left-over thrash. Works very well so far.

Combined with some usenet indexing site which build rss feeds (or remote push to NZBGet) for any new episodes/movie releases you can automatically download any new stuff which you might want. Some even import any stuff from your Trakt/IMDB watchlist. As XBMC is running on the same machine it is also easy to let XBMC update the library when any new media is added.

Wonder if anyone else has set up anything like this? I looked into installing transmission through optware on the FireTV but couldn’t install optware as it wouldn’t let me remount. Can install uTorrent and control that from your phone but as far as I saw I couldn’t get it to run a cleanup script after any download is done. Really want it to be all automated so for now I’m only using usenet, which I prefer over torrents anyway.

you have just made my day you have no idea. ive been working on getting a renamer to work on my fire tv i already have a torrent based downloader with a custom rss feed to download but i couldnt for the life of me find one.

as for clean up im not quite sure what you mean but this is my setup

Flud run auto download through rss and updates decently when it downloads when its done it will delete the torrent file and there is an option to move the file when it is done downloading

i have my hdd mounted and all files are moved to the uncatagorized folder but after that i i cant sort them so im gonna try your method but a really good app i found is watchdog it auto updates the xbmc library a lot better then anything else

if theres anything i can help with let me know

thanks again

Also flud will delet old items and if its renamed and moved it should be able to delete the old unnecessary folders

so since videosort requires NZB do you know a way to make it work without it?

P.S. Sorry about my grammar its my worst subject and I was more excited to post then check haha

The VideoSort script can be modified to work with torrents as well. It uses some variables passed by NZBGet (Download Directory, NZB-name, etc) to process the download. If there is any torrent client for android which allows you to call a script after a download is done and has some way to pass the download location it should work. I don't know of any torrent client on android that does this though. uTorrent, transmission and more allow for this in their Windows clients.

What I did before I got python working was I shared my external HDD with my Windows network using Samba Filesharing. Then I just had a simple batch file setup which would sort the media by using Filebot.

So there isn't an equivalent sabnzbd suite (sickbeard, couchpotato) for the Android fork like you have on openelec?

What if we use tasker to trigger an event when a file or folder gets moved to the UnCategorised folder? The event being a Python script that I found called turbo sort it works great.

Also one more thing I would love to get flexget working to scrape rss feeds have you looked into this at all?

I've made a lot of progress on this and the last day I'm somewhat close to making a thread that explains how to make an automated system but I've got to make sure everything works flawlessly first.

Bad grammar this time is due to voice keyboard lol

nzbget version?
I've been messing with nzbget on gbox and fire for some time now. Now gbox has openelec sabnzbdsuite is perfect. Before that was using nzbget and it worked well, however latest version with extraction would start loading on ftv but just hang. I did manage to get old version to run fine but no auto extract. Which version you using? Did you manage to add unrar pp script?

Not that I know off. Think there is a Sickbeard version for android though. I tried to install SABnzbd through optware on my tablet but couldn't get it to work well with python. You should try NZBGet, works well. Also is less resource intensive. If you combine NZBGet with indexer to automatically add stuff and use the NZBGet post processing scripts to order the media you will basically have sabnzbd/sickbeard/couch into 1 app by just running NZBGet combined with an indexer (I use DogNZB).

The script I use, VideoSort, is a evolved version of the Turbo script. Good idea on Tasker to watch for the folder. Think that should work. You can try it yourself, install Python for Android and use it to run the script.

The NZBGet version I have already has parcheck and unrarring build in. Only need to add post processing scripts if you want to do more. Atm I have 3 running, 1 to rename a specific format and place them in my tvshow/seasons/episodes folder structure. 1 to notify XBMC and 1 to notify me of new downloads on my phone.

That's odd, that's same version that just hangs of aftv for me. Maybe time to break it out again and start from scratch.

Can't quite get it to work
Hi Nedle,

Thanks for writing this post I've been scratching my head over this for days.

Ive set up sickbeard for android just for TV post processing with rss feeds from probably the same nzb indexer as you, its a bit hit and miss really because some of the extracted files are labelled 2 folders deep with the parent folder showing the show details, another folder with random characters and then finally the video file with more random characters. It seems like sickbeard will only pick up strangely labelled files in the parent folder and not go digging.

It looks like getting videosort to work could hopefully sort this out, I'm not sure how to get python running properly. Ive tried running the r5 version from the link you gave and the python3 version with no success. I've put the videosort zip in the download folder and tried to import it into python but it pops up with an error. Videosort on Nzbget continues to fail in pp.

What process did you go through to get python to work? I'm sure I must be making a rookie error here

Thanks!
