Description

Magic TV tool.

Version management

Server wide installation is updated every 30 minutes. Once installed you have the option to use the build-in updater to update to any version you would like.

Tips and tricks

  • Sickrage is setup to work with both rTorrent and Deluge out of the box. It accomplishes this by download .torrent files to the torrents/watch folder where they will be automatically picked up by your client and then processed by Filebot.

  • There is no post-processing done by Sickrage by default since this would interfere with Filebot's post-processing. Feel free to change this though.

  • Please note that if you connect Sickrage to your torrent client directly Filebot will most likely stop working.

  • If you are using the new 8TB AppBoxes and wish to have SickRage correctly update when items have been downloaded, make sure you change the default directory to /home/hd1/[yourUsername]/media/TV Shows

  • For some reason, a backup & restore doesn't restore TV show posters...but a mass update & rescan is able to restore the images.

  • It's advised not to use the Backup feature of Sickrage between installations since it also backups port and passwords.

For those that use free torrent trackers (KickAss/PirateBay), you'll want to edit the provider files in ~/apps/sickrage/sickbeard/providers: For Kickass: Edit kat.py. Find the line : self.urls = { 'base_url' : 'http://kickass.so/'} and change ".so" to ".to". For TPB: Edit thepiratebay.py. Find the same line as above and change the url to 'https://thepiratebay.se/'.

Connecting directly to rTorrent

If you want to skip Filebot and use Sickrage directly use the following settings. Please note that you will have work around a bug and submit the details twice:

Setting Value
rTorrent host:port username.servername.bysh.me/rutorrent
Http Authentication basic
rTorrent username Your username
rTorrent password Your rTorrent password

Now press save and test connection and you should get an error. Now change the rTorrent host:port to username.servername.bysh.me/rutorrent/plugins/httprpc/action.php and it should work the second time.

Manually updating / Sickrage not starting

If you want to manually update Sickrage or want to try to fix if it's not starting then please open a terminal via VNC or SSH.

Then do the following: cd ~/apps/sickrage && git checkout master && git pull that should show some output. After that try an other restart to start this latest version.

If that still fails raise a ticket.
