    Default Best Newsgroup Software?

    I use grabit for downloading from newsgroups, but what does everyone else use?

    This on my Mac (also works on PC or Qnap) tied in with MyTVnzb which creates an RSS feed for all of the programs you want, stick it on your iGoogle home page and just click the links and it downloads the NZB.

    I also have Sabnzbd watching my downloads folder so it auto detects my downloaded nzbs then adds them to the queue, downloads them, par2's them then extracts them to the directory of choice into Show/Series/Episode format.

    Works like a dream....

    thats what it does m8......it still downloads at your max connection speed tho so it makes no difference.

    Grabit (which also does the auto repair/extract/delete btw for those that didn't know.) I Also find the free usenet search handy, you can only do a couple a day for free but it's handy for the occassional item if you can't find an nzb.
