SickBeard TPB is currently an alpha release. There may be severe bugs in it and at any given time it may not work at all.
Sick Beard TPB is a PVR for torrent and newsgroup users. It watches for new episodes of your favorite shows and when they are posted it downloads them, sorts and renames them, and optionally generates metadata for them. It retrieves show information from theTVDB.com and TVRage.com.

- can watch for better versions and upgrade your existing episodes (to from TV DVD/BluRay for example)
- XBMC library updates, poster/fanart downloads, and NFO/TBN generation
- configurable episode renaming
- sends NZBs directly to SABnzbd, prioritizes and categorizes them properly
- available for any platform, uses simple HTTP interface
