Default Couch Potato

Is there a way to get Couch Potato to clean up after itself once it downloads a movie? It usually dumps the movie folder in the right folder called Movies where XBMC looks, but unless I copy and paste the movie out of the folder myself, XBMC can't see it.

I know Sick Beard takes care of this on it's own ... is it just a setting I'm missing somewhere?

If I remember correctly, as I am not at home, you can also turn on a notification to update/let XBMC know there is new movies/that movie just downloaded so it'll update automatically (at least it does for me with it selected)

Well that looks like what I have ...

My downloading folder is /home/alex/Downloads/incomplete and my movies folder is /mnt/MyRaid5/Movies, it moves it to the correct folder, but the movie stays in it's own movie folder and XBMC won't see it until I move it out and put the .avi or .mkv in the ../Movies folder.

I use a totally different program called scru I think it is similar to the program what you are talking about or I am way off base. what scru does is when a file is rared up and comes into a certain folder it will unrar the file and move it to which ever folder you have set it up for I only use that part of the program even though it does allot more then that. I use scru for that only because on some nights I am downloading multiple TV episodes and while I am watching those TV shows scru is working in the background
