Post subject:  Bad or Encrypted Downloads

Pete,

I believe several MCM indexer users are reporting that MCM can only find bad or Encrypted downloads for some shows. This usually manifests itself in a download that can not be repaired or is encrypted that causes SABnzbd to hang and pause on it. I am not sure if this is two unrelated issues or are somehow linked. Let me know and we can split the thread.

My latest example of a bad download from last night:

Downton Abbey S06E05 [MCM Usenet Download] ยป Repair failed, not enough repair blocks (44 short)

These are the only entries found on the MCM indexer as of this morning (10/19 @ 8:30AM CST):

Downton Abbey S06E05 720p HDTV x264-ORGANiC TV > HD 16 Hrs 1.06 GB 91%
Downton Abbey S06E05 HDTV x264-ORGANiC TV > SD 16 Hrs 312.71 MB 91%

Both are bad.

I found these on Usenet Crawler:

Downton.Abbey.S06E05.720p.HDTV.x264-ORGANiC TV > HD 17 Hrs 1.17 GB 100%
Downton.Abbey.S06E05.HDTV.x264-ORGANiC TV > SD 17 Hrs 344.53 MB 100%

I downloaded Downton.Abbey.S06E05.720p.HDTV.x264-ORGANiC manually from Usenet Crawler and it downloaded OK from there.

Thanks for looking into this and let me know if you need any more information.

The fact that we're seeing different filesizes here tells me that the MCM indexer is indexing those bins before all bins have been uploaded. I'll increase the threshold for when MCM decides it can post the release and let it repair for longer.

Hi Pete,

Last week only The Blacklist had an issue with the MCM indexer returning a bad NZB that failed to download. The MCM indexer has the following entries for this episode:

The Blacklist S03E04 1080p WEB-DL DD5 1 H 264-Oosh TV > HD 2.1 Days 1.89 GB 100%
The Blacklist S03E04 720p HDTV x264 TV > HD 3.3 Days 1,017.98 MB 100%
The Blacklist S03E04 720p HDTV x264-KILLERS TV > HD 3.5 Days 948.68 MB 90%

Apparently MCM first grabbed "The Blacklist S03E04 720p HDTV x264-KILLERS" (maybe because it was the only one available at the time it first searched and found a hit) and this DL failed because it is not at 100%.

Then I went into the MCM download history and simply removed this episode and let MCM re-download new episodes. This time around it found "The Blacklist S03E04 720p HDTV x264" which did download OK.

Is there any way to force MCM indexer to not display entries that are not at 100% or have MCM itself ignore these entries when searching? TIA.

I have to agree that things have gotten much better. Thanks again Pete!

Although not as much detail, I also have run into a few bad downloads:

Fresh Off the Boat S02E05 [MCM Usenet Download] - Repair failed, not enough repair blocks (30 short)

MCM Index: searching for Fresh Off the Boat, episode S02E05 (searching only 720p HD)...
MCM Index: Found this result: Fresh.Off.the.Boat.S02E05.720p.HDTV.x264-FLEET
MCM Index: ... Fresh Off the Boat S02E05 downloaded .nzb
MCM: ... Fresh Off the Boat S02E05 download contains 869 segments totalling 640 MB

As did Aggie, some recent bad downloads, I delete and then redownload and all is fine. This one has not been.

Hope this helps!

FYI - I had exactly the same issue this week with The Blacklist S03E05 as I did last week as noted in the quote below from last week.
