16.1 seems to have broken unpacking larger files for android. Still worked for an 113 MB file but failed for 2 files (600 MB and 1.1 GB), both which did work on 16.0.
Using ${AppDir}/unrar and no UnpackPassfile, the error code given is 5:

Code: Select all

In the history window the status says 'space' in yellow, there is still plenty of space left so not sure what that means either.

I've updated unrar to 5.21 (from 5.01 beta) and also recompiled it with optimization level -O2 (instead of -O3, which has caused issue on certain CPUs.)

I would make few test builds of unrar if you are willing to test them. Please send me a note to nzbget@gmail.com.

I'm very interested in using an Nvidia Shield as a replacement for my Popcorn Hour as a usenet download device. It should be much faster at downloading and unpacking than the 2 year old SMP8643 SoC.

Will the Android version of NZBGet work on the Android TV-based Shield?

thx

I don't have any other feedback as from this topic. As you see there is very little of it and none about shield. The method should work with any ARM or x86 device but you never know for sure.

I side-loaded NZBget Mobile (from Google Play) onto my Nvidia Shield TV. With it, I was able to download and install 16.3 as a daemon. It works!

But a couple issues:

1. Since the Shield is limited to 16 GB, I'm trying to unpack onto an external USB drive, but getting permission denied errors trying to write to that drive.

2. The daemon periodically stops on its own, and doesn't run automatically on boot.

I'm trying to get this all working without rooting, but it may be more hassle than it's worth.

Have you tried the official way?

The Android installer works, however, the daemon doesn't stay up. After some time (varies between minutes to hours), the process goes down.

How do I get it to auto start on boot up? And self-restart?

As for writing to an external drive (USB or SD), I'm hoping Marshmallow will make it easier?

thx

This would be a killer feature on the Nvidia Shield TV.

I've just got one with a view to replacing my Popcorn C-200. Hope you can get it working.

It probably crashes. Please install the debug version and activate option DumpCore. Then search for the core-file, usually in the DestDir.

No auto-start option yet.
What is self-restart?
