NZBGet Pi

NZBGet is the must have software if you are into the usenet databases, basically this will help you searching the files that you requested in Sonarr, Radarr or any other data management tool that you are using for your server, I ended up using NZBGet because it requires less resources than Sabnzbd for my Raspberry PI.

The interface is clean and has plugins that you can set up, such as renaming (if you need help renaming you can also do it with Sonarr or Radarr), detecting files extensions that you dont need for example “.iso”, they dont have the feature to auto comment like sabzbd but usenet providers dont like that feature anyways.

First SSH into Pi

Now we’ll download the and install the NZBGet to /opt.
To do this we’ll need to make a directory

sudo mkdir /opt/nzbget

Download the run script to /tmp using wget with the -P flag to determine the destination directory

Transmission (deb)

Install transmission

sudo apt-get install transmission-cli transmission-common transmission-daemon

Configure

transmission-daemon will start automatically each time you start your server, with the settings defined in /var/lib/transmission-daemon/info/settings.json

Make sure the Transmission daemon is not running when changing the config file otherwise your changes will be over written.

sudo systemctl stop transmission-daemon

Now we need to change a few settings.

sudo nano /var/lib/transmission-daemon/info/settings.json

Spytify records music from the soundcard of your computer. It records what music you are playing on computer. You will get the same quality as the original Spotify music, so the recorded copy will be indistinguishable from Spotify’s one. Spytify records at .mp3 quality, and not at higher qualities like .flac, as we know the Spotify deliver 320 kbps audio quality for most of songs.
