i keep getting Authentication errors in sickbeard it says Your authentication info for Usenet-Crawler is incorrect, check your config, im new to sickbeard and sab what ive done is added usenet crawler as a built in provider ive then gone to the tab on the left of the site that says API ive then copied the API key at the top of the page where it says Your credentials should be provided as ?apikey=139************8a4985976a73f when i put my API into sickbeard is this the right one and when i put it in do i just use the numbers and letters or should i add the ?apikey= infront of the string.

thanks

Just put the string in. Sickbeard knows thats the apikey because thats the spot you put it in.

However, I just got that notice today too, so something may be wrong with either sickbeard or the site.

Sometimes SB gets 'confused', if there was a previous problem with APIs.
To get round this, remove from Providers, save then add a customised Provider, renaming to something like UN-Crawler, site URL the same & add your API Key :)

I'm jumping on this thread if you will.

Having problems with SickBeard as well:

"Error while searching Usenet-Crawler, skipping: charmap"

I tried re-entering the search provider but with no luck...

Any thoughts?

I've just became a bff and am getting the same error from api in sick beard.
Tried the solution above but still the same.
Anyone any ideas?

FYI...same issues with this site, and my other newznab site

nope...problem corrected. Are you running through a VPN?...I have a new VPN provider, and if I run Sickbeard through the VPN, it does not connect (have to resolve another day), however, disabling the VPN will allow it to connect without any problems

Nope. No VPN.
It happens when I use either the build-in Usenet-Crawler or when I add a new one (with a different name).
For both I use:
http://www.usenet-crawler.com/
And my api code in the api field.

I have been getting that authentication error for about a year and I stil have no issues searching or snatching.API key is definitely correct and there's no other authentication parameters so, its annoying but not critical it seems

I'm having the same issue at the moment, i think perhaps sickbeard is using the wrong site url as its default. Mine says http not https. I have just added it as a custom provider with the https and the errors seem to have gone away, touch wood they stay like that
