Something is up with the CP source, I had the issue a couple days back and used your instructions to kill the extra pyc files Clinton, but it occurred again today. Thought I'd let you know, it's working again after killing the files again.

The deleting of the .pyc files should only have been required once.

I have found a few instances where CouchPotato failed to correctly restart after an auto-update. In these cases restarting is all that was required....

I believe simply disabling and enabling via AppCentral should be sufficient. Otherwise restart via ssh. Deleting the .pyc files doesn't hurt, but really shouldn't be needed...

I had tried to stop/start it twice in AppCentral first, the webUI would sit spinning and never load. After stopping it, killing the pyc files and restarting it loaded normally. It was odd so I thought I'd report it even though it's operating again for me.

Ok... thanks for the report...

I may look at adding the deletion of .pyc files in the next release... but it just hasn't been a priority.

The only time this would usually cause an issue is when actual modules get changed in the source. i.e files change names or are moved... then, and only then, the existence of the .pyc files prevents git from doing the correct update...
