newzbin has by FAR the best searching and downloading features with good bookmarks and information.... but their retention hasnt really kept up with my giganews service lately.. so ive started to branch out into nzbmatrix, nzbsrus and binsearch when looking for older stuff.. but apart from their retention.. they really are nowhere near as good...

From my experience Newzleech and NZBIndex are light years ahead of binsearch...


and yet binsearch dominates in popularity here.

How so? Also, the poll suggests Newzleech is winning (44% vs 32% for Binsearch) which astounds me.  Newzleech has been broken for a very long time - since the last round of updates and the terrible implementation of partial-word search, not to mention the over-zealous grouping.  NZBIndex speed has recently improved, but is still some way behind lightning-fast Binsearch.  NZBIndex is very reliable on results, though.  An excellent second to Binsearch.

binsearch has rolled back retention to 300 days.. besides  it got a terrible search engine. sometimes u just cant find something  because u havent entered the exact name with all dots(!)  lol.
all in all there is no ultimate index site out there..

So what's going on with this thread?  Are any of the suggested sites going to be implemented?  If so is there a timeline?

I have used Ultrasearch with Ultraleecher and found it a good search engine.  Its not free, but if it doesn't have a closed membership it would be a good choice.

Since Newzleech has been closed, what are we supose to do?

Any free search engine, yet voted for Binsearch. Though i agree it is hopless for searches. Try V 2009 HDTV or V.2009 HDTV none work. Need to search for V 2009 HDTV then use the + V.2009 HDTV for it to work.

Shame about Newzleech going down, that was my backup for everything binsearch couldn't find. Yet it to was a sad search engine. Then there is NZBIndex i suppose between the three when all working i find a fair percentage but never all.

I know there is the web sites to use, but am one for doing via search control tabs that Alt.Binz has got built in. Would be nice to see more, a lot more. More so for those that we can use "V 2009 HDTV (meaning find all with just those or "V.2009" for been accurate everytime.

I know i have read here that some files are numbered before the name, but say for tv episodes that number is not for all the program name, it's normaly just for that episode.

Melins portal i did go there once, javascripted, so never went back. Tough what if that search engine was on a AltBinz tab and was free to use, sure i would use that. Will use any search engine on a Alt.Binz tab that is free to use. :)

Don't exaggerate.  Like many search engines, there's a minimum word length on keyword/full text searches, and a list of stopwords (yes just like google). Use quotation marks around strings to search for phrases e.g. "V.2009" hdtv or "V.2009.S01E04" hdtv, etc.  Binsearch always did better than Newzleech with searches like this.  It's just called: learning how to search.

Used to be newzleech and now nzbindex.

Binsearch in indeed horrible with tv show searches  :o as it's always grouping the episodes from the same release group.

For example i type "how met mother s05e07" and it only gives the 30MB par2 files.
To get the rar files for this episode you need to go get them with the s05e06 search, the use the "fetch collection info" action.

I notice that with CTU posts where the filename ends in ep number - but only sometimes.  It's an odd one, to be sure.  You can see the reason if you look at the collection urls, which expose the grouping:

E07:
http://binsearch.info/?b=ctu-x264-how.i.met.your.mother.507&g=alt.binaries.multimedia&p=teevee%404u.net+%28teevee%29&max=250

E06:
http://binsearch.info/?b=ctu-x264-how.i.met.your.mother&g=alt.binaries.multimedia&p=teevee%404u.net+%28teevee%29&max=250

Testing against other CTU stuff suggests that the number 506 always gets stripped from filename end (but not other ep numbers). So you'll see this error for any CTU release with a S05E06 in it ... like Bones, Criminal Minds, etc.  As far as I can tell, other season/ep numbers and groups are fine.  Would be interesting to know if not, though.

I tried it and looks quite good so it would be a great addition to Alt.Binz
