CouchPotato is an automatic NZB and torrent downloader.
You can keep a "want to watch"-list and it will search for NZBs/torrents of these items every X hours. Once a correct release is found, matching the correct quality, it will send it to SABnzbd or download the .nzb or .torrent to a specified directory.

This package performs a number of normally quite painful / tedious tasks
- Installs SABnzbd+ (compiled version)
- Installs Python
- Installs PyWin32
- Git clones the CouchPotato source to site-packages
- Configures Git within CouchPotato to auto-update
- Configures for XBMC metadata
- Configures XMBC notifications - to port 9090 as SABnzbd+ uses 8080
- Configures CouchPotato to send NZBs to SABnzbd+ using API key
- Configures CouchPotato to run as a Windows service
- Configured alternate SABnzbd+ post-processing scripts

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
