Try to use HTTPS for better security if the providers allows it, otherwise HTTP.API key:Fill in your API key that your provider has provided you with.Newznab search categories:Here you can add the categories for your provider. For regular users the categories 5030 (SD) 5040 (HD) and when available 5010 (WEB-DL) are the most important onces. If you only download SD quality shows than only add the category 5030 (SD). No need to add 5040 (HD) & 5010 (WEB-DL) than. This makes searching way more efficient. There is also a category 5000 (TV) however this contains all TV related shows like anime, foreign, sports, shows, documentary, etc. Lots of witch you probably dont need, and therefor not very efficient to search. In case you are using sports you need to add the category 5060 (Sport) and when you use Anime shows add the category 5070 (Anime).Note, some NZB indexers use a different numbering scheme but you should be able to navigate your way through.

Some download clients support sync files. Those files are placed inside the download folder if a file is still downloading.

And that only completed files are moved to the TV Download Dir that Medusa monitors.Postpone post processingEnables/disables the above described function of the sync files.Rename .nfo fileIn case there is already a .nfo file in the show folder Medusa will rename it to .nfo-org to prevent if from being overwritten and causing conflicts.Rename EpisodesEnables/disables the function of renaming files as configured under the episode renaming tab.Change File Date?Scan and ProcessLets you enable/disable the scanning of the TV Download Dir.Don't delete empty folders Lets you select if Medusa should remove or delete empty folders left after moving the episode file.Auto Post-Processing FrequencyThis lets you set the time between scans in the TV Download Dir as described above.
