This is not strictly a MCM or MCM indexer issue, but has anyone had problems with recent Revolution 2012 downloads? For example the current S01E19 NZB on the MCM indexer:

Revolution.2012.S01E19.720p.HDTV.X264-DIMENSION

MCM finds and downloads the NZB and sabnzbd tries to download and unpack it, but fails giving the following status message:

-----------------------

Source D:\Usenet\NZBQueue\Revolution S01E19 [MCM Usenet Download].nzb
Repair [revolution] Repair failed, not enough repair blocks (326 short)
------------------------

Last weeks E18 episode did something similar. When I manually downloaded and unpacked it, I am almost 100% sure it gave my HTPC a virus or worm even though my antivirus SW was fully updated and definitions current. Fortunately I back it up every night and just restored it to an earlier backup to recover quickly.

Anyone else seen any weirdness with Revolution Usenet downloads lately? I am a little scared of them right now...... :/

Revolution, Game of Thrones, and other big ticket shows typically get DMCA take-down requests as they appear on usenet. What you're seeing is downloads that were only valid for an hour, sometimes less.

Either set Media Center Master to download this show quickly (T.V. download interval to every 10-15 minutes, perhaps), or you may need to download these shows using torrents.

This has been an ongoing issue with usenet in general for almost a year and it got so bad that NZBMatrix.com took themselves offline permanently.

("malformed" and "missing articles" are just that: they don't exist anymore or are in the process of being removed. You are not receiving viruses from uploads that usenet hosts are in the process of removing)

Thanks for the info Pete. I currently have MCM set to check for new TV shows every 2 hours because I didn't want to hit your indexer too much. Is the MCM indexer limited by the number of search requests or just the number of actual NZB downloads?

Search requests? None unless done by RSS/API. Downloads? 100 in a 24-hour period, but that's only for downloads not made using Media Center Master (by other programs or manually at the web). Media Center Master does not have any limitations with the usenet indexer we run.
