Can anyone tell me exactly what MCM is doing when trying to download, and maybe why it is? I have a few questions below and the log to reference is below that.

In the log below...

1) It seems to be doing the seems thing over and over again. Seems like it does the same thing 3 times.

Log Actions Summary:
Searching for "tom clancys jack ryan S01E01"
Searching for "tom clancys jack ryan 1x01"

Searching for "tom clancys jack ryan 1x01"
Searching for "tom clancys jack ryan S01E01"
Searching for "tom clancys jack ryan 1x01"


2) It seems to only find "Tom Clancys Jack Ryan S01E08 PROPER 720p WEB h264-BATV [eztv]" as a release on EZTV. When in fact the whole season is there. Not once does it try to look at the release S01E01. Because of this it never finds a match on episode 1.

Side note: It would be SO helpful for debugging these things if there was a way to only search for a specific search and episode in the "Download Back Episodes" form. If you added one more small text box "Enter an episode number to limit downloads to...". Usually all Netflix releases come out on the same day so there is no way to only try for one episode.


PS: I LOVE the thread management window!!! Thanks!

In the Settings/Download Tab on the left about in the middle is a date field "Skip TV Episodes before this date". You can go to IMDB and look up the TV show Jack Ryan and look under season 1, episode 1 - it will list the air date. Just make sure to set the MCM date before this day.

Don't go crazy and set the date to 2015. You might add a TV show down the road that doesn't need all that back data.

Also, don't get to hung up on the log view. It will drive you crazy. It often times looks like it is repeating the same line items over and over but it's actually doing it's thing behind the scenes to make sure it gets the best show possible per the settings on bottom half of the Downloader Tab.

In fact, if you are looking at getting TV shows, WebDL are some of the best. These are pulled from places like Netflix or Amazon, they are not HDTV recordings. You can go into the Downloader tab settings for TV shows at 720p and 1080p and add "Web*" to the TV Episode Include Terms. This way it will only download shows that have the word Web in thier file name.

It would look like this in the 720p TV Show Include field:
720* WEB*

and the 1080 include field.
1080* WEB*

In addition to the above, I have mine set to exclude from downloading any 720 or 1080p files that have HDTV in the file name. Looks like this:
720* HDTV* HEVC*

I think your missing my point. You are giving me the solution to download episodes only starting past a certain point. I actually use this on many of my TV shows already and it works perfectly.

What I was talking about was when you go into the manual "Download back episodes" window and can specify a date range or a season number. Those are great criteria IF you know all that information, which most people don't unless they spend the agonizing time to get on to thetvdb and wait for the page to load. What would be great is if I could (from that window) target ONLY one episode or maybe two etc.. Instead of having to go look up the dates that episodes 1-3 aired then use that date range in the GUI window, I could just enter season "1", start episode "1", end episode "3". Then it would ONLY search for the three episodes instead of the entire season.

Thanks for the suggestion though. Just not what I'm looking for. Also, great points and advice for the include/exclude settings. I need to get on board with the WEB downloads for sure...

I see what you mean. I've never used that feature. But I do this often, grab a couple episodes, see if the family likes the show before obtaining the rest.

I use sources like RARBG as they list all the shows in chronilogical order. Once you select a show they have a "Browse" button that lists them all out. Since good sources are limited, compared to 5-10 years ago, I think you might find that it's sometimes faster to just grab what you want directly from the source (like RARBG) then relying on MCM.

One of the other reasons I use RARBG is that it allows you to see the mediainfo of each file. It shows if they have subs or not.
