RSS Dupe-Check, "name"-based, before downloading the nzb from feed?

Post by douche » 13 May 2018, 22:10

Is there any way to setup the RSS dupe-check to occur prior to downloading the nzb file from the feed?
Instead of downloading any nzb files that match the RSS filter, only to be then bounced as a dupe when they're added to the queue?

There's a few indexers out there that limit both the number of API/RSS calls per 24hrs, as well as the number of NZB file downloads per 24hrs.
Unfortunately not all indexers are made equal, in the fact that they don't all get the same releases, and definitely not at the same time. As such, I have 2 specific indexers that I have the exact same RSS feed and filters setup, in order to ensure that I get all the releases I'm looking for.

With the way I have RSS dupe checking currently setup (defaults), I end-up using 'valuable' nzb file downloads (remember, they limit the number per 24hrs).

Is there a way to dupe-check RSS items, based on the release "name", prior to downloading the nzb from the feed?
- this would not count against my nzb file limit),

For example:
CURRENT:
Indexer 1 shows new release "Ubuntu.LTS.18.04.UNTOUCHED.iso" at 8am
NZBGet sees the release in the RSS feed, and downloads the nzb file, adds it to queue. (Indexer 1: NZB limit +1)
Indexer 2 shows the same new release "Ubuntu.LTS.18.04.UNTOUCHED.iso" at 1030am
NZBGet sees the release in the RSS feed, and downloads the nzb file, dupechecks, and skips the queue. (Indexer 2: NZB limit +1)
PREFERRED:
Indexer 1 shows new release "Ubuntu.LTS.18.04.UNTOUCHED.iso" at 8am
NZBGet sees the release in the RSS feed, and downloads the nzb file, adds it to queue. (Indexer 1: NZB limit +1)
Indexer 2 shows the same new release "Ubuntu.LTS.18.04.UNTOUCHED.iso" at 1030am
NZBGet sees the release in the RSS feed, dupechecks, and skips download. (Indexer 2: NZB limit unchanged)
Not sure if this is currently possible? If it is, I can't seem to figure out a way to make it work, based this doc: http://nzbget.net/rss

Any help is appreciated.

cheers

Try rejecting items using field dupestatus.

that appears to work, for exact matches.

I'm wondering if it's possible to 'enhance' this feature:

Some indexers use a " " (space) as a 'filler' between words/info in the filenames, some use a "." (dot), and some use a "_" (underscore).

Any possibility match regardless of the 'filler' used?

Thank you!
