Struggling with Usenet Search

Postby StrangeLove » Mon Jun 12, 2023 6:51 pm

Thanks for the amazing program! 8)

So purchased a year but must be doing something wrong because there is not much showing up or anything.
I disabled all the Spam Filters but limited minimum size to 50meg, since I'm looking for Tv series, which at usually 500meg minimum.
Also I got the limited Searches version because didn't think I would come close to using 500 a month.
Now I'm worried but probably haven't used more than 30 or 40 because I keep trying different versions of the same item.

I.e. was looking for a show releasing on Sundays, called <something> and tried every variation but there's nothing.
Hope it's ok to use a link, please delete if not and sorry.


Including link to Scene Source as proof of release, think it's up

They should start to show up if they're not already there. Thanks.

Thanks for the reply and help. 8)

I did a search with the first.last (names, since I noticed you edited them out) and I do see Audio and Books but no videos.
I also dropped my minimum to 10meg but still books/audios.
Not complaining, just reporting.

I agree. I asked Dex to look at it again.
