myNZBGet is an iOS frontend for the popular nzbget binary news grabber running on many routers, NAS-systems and media-receivers. It supports direct connection via RPC as well as tunneling the connection via SSH.
The current version of myNZBGet is 2.3.0. Please visit the change log on what is new.
This documentation referes to an outdated version and needs to be updated!
The application settings are available from inside the application by tapping on the settings-button (top right) from the server-status view. From the settings main view general settings may be altered directly. Tapping on the “Server Profiles” entry goes to the server profiles management.
Within the Server profiles view you are able to manage an arbitrary number of server profiles. Each server profile may represent a different device or just different connection settings for the same device(s). E.g., depending whether you want to access one of your NZBGet servers from your local network or from outside you may want to specify one profile with direct connection and one with the connection tunneled via SSH.
The server status view presents all important key facts of your NZBGet server. I think, it is more or less self explanatory. To choose the current server profile tap at the title.
Remark: Pause/Resume of the post process queue requires NZBGet 0.7.0 at minimum.
At the downloads view you may manage all current downloads and postprocess jobs and view/delete recent history entries. Depending on your NZBGet server version there are several options. You can
From the search view you can directly search for NZBs online using binsearch.info. Just enter the keywords you want to search for in the search bar. A list with results will be presented from where you can go to a detail page. If you found what you where searching for, you may easily add the download to your downlaod queue.
Most likely, yes. I do not own a Popcorn Hour myself, but I had help from Jacob, who tested it with his. He made a small setup guide for me.
Definitivly yes, given your nzbget server supports ssh, as the connection via ssh is encrypted and therefore secure. You have to forward the ssh port from your internet router to your nzbget server. Further you should assign a dynamic internet name to your router (e.g. with DynDNS), which you later can use in myNZBGet as a host name. For QNAP there is a service called MyCloudNAS, which does the necessary steps for you automatically.
In theory it is also possible to forward the JSON-RPC port (standard 6789) from the internet. But I would not recommend that, as this protocol is not encrypted.
Most likely you use an old NZBGet version. There is a bug in the RPC interface of NZBGet 0.6.0, which might cause this problem. Please check the server log, if you find entries like:
Error parsing nzb-file: expected '>'
If you are running NZBGet 0.6.0 you may either want to update to a newer version or you could use the alternative way of adding downloads via ssh.
Also refer to the NZBGet ChangeLog:
fixed: RPC-method "append" did not work properly on Posix systems (it worked only on Windows);
This kind of error means, that no NZBGet-server could be reached at the address and port you provided in the settings. Given the server is running (check with the NZBGet web interface), this usually could be due to two different reasons:
1. The settings are wrong. Please double check the host and port settings. Be aware, that you have to use the IP-address for the host when beeing in a LAN…
2. The NZBGet-server does not allow RPC connections from the LAN. Please ensure you set your listening IP-address (at the server, not the app!) to 0.0.0.0, to allow connections from the LAN. This has to be done at the NZBGet web interface server configuration page.
myNZBGet can open NZB-files from other applications (like the mail client or web browser). That means, you can open the link to the NZB file in Safari and then send the file to myNZBGet. You may add the download to your server then using the app.
This also allows you to use different NZB binary search engines via Safari.
No. When you use the same Apple account you may download already purchased features on any of your iOS-devices for free. Just proceed with the purchase process. Apple will recognize you already paid for a certain feature and will let you download it without additional paying.
The same is true when you had to reset your iOS-device to factory settings without a backup and lost all your application settings. After reinstalling myNZBGet it does not know anymore which features had already been paid for. By again clicking on “Buy” for already purchased features you may download them for free.
This kind of behaviour normally is not a problem with the app but with the NZBGet server version you use. Most likely you use NZBGet-Server version 0.6.0, which is not recommended. This version containes a few bugs, which can result in a server crash under certain circumstances. Please consider updating your server to a newer version. - If you're already running NZBGet 0.7.0 onwards, please don't hesitate contacting me via the form below.
If you encounter app crashes, you can send me the crash logs. This would help me to check whether the crashes are related to some bugs in the app and if so to fix them. Please refer to http://www.ondemandworld.com/how-to-find-crash-logs/ on how to locate the crash logs and contact me via the form below.
