Looking for a little advice/help

Postby zatoichi5 » Sun Jan 23, 2011 10:25 pm

Hi all,
I am wondering if anyone could help me with a problem that I've been having with Grabit. Recently nearly every file I download is coming up missing recovery blocks, usually in the 1000's. I've been using Grabit for quite a while now and only had this problem occassionally. I'm not sure what it is, I'm assuming it could be the .nzb I'm downloading, the site I'm using ( or I guess it could be my service Astraweb), Grabit, or my internet connection.

Two things have changed since I started having these problems, I moved, so new internet connection, different ISP, all that stuff, and the site has had some problems with their servers. Any Ideas or suggestions? Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

This can be caused by a few things..

One, the nzbs you are trying to download were created improperly. Two, Astraweb simply does not have a copy of the particular articles in question that you are trying to download. Three, some of the articles in the set have been removed by Astraweb to comply with a DMCA takedown request.

Suggestions for you..
-Try different nzbs
- Configure grabit to use both Astraweb servers (EU & US) - sometimes if an article is missing from one server it can be found on the other
- By a block fill account with another provider (I use Newshosting) and configure the new server in grabit

Hope that helps,
