CouchPotato multiple qualities

September 10th, 2010 2 comments

When I first started using CouchPotato I saw a few screen shots people had on the internet with multiple qualities selected. I never could figure it out until now.

You need to go to your CouchPotato page, and go to Settings >> Quality, and there you will find a link that says

Create a new custom quality

You will then need to do the following:

  • Give it a name, e.g. BR/DVD-Rip
  • Select days to allow a better version to be downloaded
  • Finally add the qualities that you would allow

Personally I like either DVD-Rip or BR-Rip with the later being preferred. After you save that you can go back into Settings >> Quality, and you can select your new custom quality as the default.

If you hover over the Finish heading in the custom quality it says the following:

Won’t download anything else if it has found this quality.”

I left the BR-Rip checked, and unchecked the DVD-Rip. We’ll see what this does, but it seems to me that it should allow keep looking for a BR-Rip even if a DVD-Rip has been found and downloaded, but if it has found a BR-Rip, then it won’t look any more for a DVD-Rip.

I guess we’ll have to wait and see how it works.

I ran into a neat little program called CouchPotato. It is used for downloading movies off the internet. It works with either nzb or torrent files.
