    What's your newsgroup server retention at? Is the NZB new or old?

    Sounds like you're using one past your NZB retention age.

    eh, think of it kind of like a torrent ... you need a news'reader' program with nzb support.

    if you *have* such a program, set up properly, and you still are not getting the actual files, what newsserver are you using? free w/isp or a paid service?

    Like I said I think it's older than your retention... you get txt files with this.

    which is why you need to find out your retention and how old the nzb actually is.
