CouchPotato Best thing since sliced bread A***

Postby scottmoss » Tue May 13, 2014 12:09 am

Hi,

Juist got this App working after reading other users posts and I have to say it's fantastic (Where has it been all my life!) One thing that I would like to see is be able to set a file size limit where it won't automatically download it if the file is larger than x - for some reason all the files have been 4/5 gb in size. I have changed the order so it looks for DVD-rip first but it always seems to find 720p at 5gb.

Any got any suggestions or if not can this be included? I know I should probably go to the dev site.

Thanks again,

Scott

Check settings, you can add a profile (multiple qualities) or a quality at time of adding a movie.a

If you only want DVD-rip then add the movies with ( or on wanted list edit the movies to any have) DVD quality.

In settings, profiles, there are advanced options to change file size for each quality... First enable "show advanced settings"

Thank you, missed that setting! What defaults do you use?

Personally I just use 720p. I don't want lower quality BR-rip and I don't have the bandwidth for 1080p...

My sizes are kept as default.
