NZB files shows zero headers when loaded

Postby Chuck D. Bones » Wed Aug 16, 2017 12:38 am

I searched and searched for this topic in this forum and didn't find it. What causes an NZB file to appear empty when I open it in NBpro 6.80B5? If I open the NZB in notepad, it looks valid (to my untrained eye). Filters are disabled. This happens with some, but not all NZBs. Some NZBs were downloaded from a newsgroup, others from Usenet Crawler.
Thanks,
Chuck

You can email some of the bad ones to ts@newsbin.com.

If you look at the logs do you see any errors during load?

No errors or messages of any kind in the log when I load a *zero* NZB. I emailed it just now.

Thanks,
Chuck

I tested it in the latest beta, B6 and when I loaded it onto a post list the files showed up. How about trying B6?

Just installed B7 and still no posts show when I load the NZB file: <something>.s02e09.hdtv.x264-sva-Obfuscated.nzb

The filters (green button) are disabled. My servers are Newshosting, Astraweb & Tweaknews. No errors logged when I load the NZB. Could there be something in my settings that would filter the posts? Is there something i should check in the settings menu or in the newsbin.nbi file?

Thanks,
Chuck

Check your Global Filter Profile for something that might be filtering this stuff out. That filter profile applies all the time.

BTW, I edited your post, please don't list what you are downloading publicly.

Thanks for the heads-up. Global Filter is set to 0 KB, 0 KB, 0 and None. No accept or reject criteria, so basically no filtering. I noticed in Newsbin.nbi an entry under [NZB] that said: NZB_ObeyGlobal=1. Changing it to NZB_ObeyGlobal=0 also made no difference. I tried other NZB files; some show posts and some don't.

Where should I look next? Does it matter which servers I use?

Thanks,
Chuck

If you go into the NZB options you have nothing set for "NZB Loading Filter"?

It's a pretty normal NZB, The the spool_v6 folder in the data you might try deleting the "BASIC_SEARCH" folder.

NZB loading filter is set to: None.

I quit NBp, deleted the "BASIC_SEARCH" folder,started NBp up again, loaded the NZB and still no posts displayed.

Thanks,
Chuck
