I recently got astraweb service and it works great for me with the sabnzbd+ client.
My buddy however, keeps getting crc errors in his downloads (same client). I doubt there is anything wrong with the nzbs (they are from this site and newzleech yet they work 100% for me).
In an attempt to fix the problem I enabled the feature to "use backup servers on yEnc crc errors". And I set the general server as the main one with 16 connections and the eu and us server as the backups with 2 connections each. We left it to download some 1080p movies overnight and the next day each one of them still had an error.
Another weird thing is that the sabnzbd+ client wont automatically unrar any of the files (presumably because they got an error). When we attempt to unrar them we get the video file and all it shows is a few seconds of blankness.
I set up the client the exact same way at my buddies as I have with my setup and Its still giving him issues. It still works flawlessly for me and according to my logs its never had to use a backup server.
Both of our comps are running xp with firefox and sabnzbd+.
Any Ideas on things I can do to prevent or fix this error?
