NZBMATRIX RSS
« on: October 15, 2010, 07:34:09 AM »
Hi peeps, i would like some advise configuring altbinz and rss feeds using the matrix API.

That said, i am using latest paid version of altbinz, i generated the rss and i can see them in the rss reader but no nzbs are parsed to the queue. I checked with another site and from their rss it parses the nzb. It seems that the feed from the matrix is the issue.

Started i a simple rule of * | A, i can see the feed but can not grab it.

I am aware that Flash worked with RDL from altbinz to fix the issue.

Maybe i am doing something wrong with the filters?

Any suggestions are very welcome.

**same post i posted in nzbmatrix

thanks

Maybe this will give you a bit of context here:

When the NZBMatrix API actually stabilizes, perhaps something can be done. In the meantime:

Thanks Hecks, forgot to mention that i have read all these previous posts. Apparently the "unstable" api works with all my other readers, just with altbinz it doesn't. nzbs.org is not an option i am afraid.

Coder from nzbmatrix just told me that rdl may have hardcoded something in altbinz that doesnt allow rss to grab the nzb. As a matter of fact they had to revert the rss feeds to another format to suit altbinz

I real don't understand why you keep bumping this.

Questions to which the answer is YES:

1. Did the NZBMatrix API at one time need some hardcoded tweaks in Alt.Binz to allow direct downloading from RSS?

2. Has the NZMatrix API changed since then?

3. Did the changes break Alt.Binz's handling of NZMatrix RSS?

4. Will it be fixed in the next version?

Questions to which the answer is NO:

1. If I keep bumping this thread, wil it be fixed quicker?

2. Is NZBMatrix the only site with a RSS feed usable by Alt.Binz?

Enough already :P

Hecks, whats your problem man? I have paid for this application and i requaested a fix. What's your issue? The fact that all other competitive applications handle successfully the nzbm rss doesn't worry you? Instead of taking a defensive position do something for the problem. Why do you keep pushing for other sites rather than nzbmatrix?

All your questions have been answered in my previous post. Nobody has paid for Alt.Binz in the way you're implying, you've made a donation and become a Contributor like the rest of us. Note that this doesn't come with a pointless-thread-bump quota, or a license to ignore the forum rules.

Hecks, you are missing the point; the point is that altbinz can not get feed from rss of the most popular nzb site right now in the same moment that all other newsreaders can. Does that make sense to you? You blame nzbmatrix instead of helping us out? Nice moderating.

What are you talking about now?  I've just stated the facts, no more, no less, including that a fix will (no doubt) be in the next version, and spamming about it in here isn't going to make that come any quicker. Please try to follow the forum rules in future.

got to agree with hecks here. I don't see your point in restating the same thing over and over again. Rdl will fix it when he does. He won't be fixing it faster if you complain about it more. The only thing you'll accomplish with it is to annoy people.

Hi davidq666.

Thanks for stating my point. I wasn't pissed because of the actual problem (you can check my previous posts and other threads). I was complaining and annoyed because of the obnoxious attitude of Hecks and the fact that he refused to acknowledge the problem that altbinz has.. Instead of that, he blaims nzbmatrix, which happens to be amazing, and encourages people to use nzb.org instead.

All i wanted was a simple "we are aware and working on it" or something along those lines.
