Screenshot Guide to Install SickRage on Synology NAS

synology-sickrage-logoSickRage can be installed on the Synology NAS Servers for automating periodic video downloads from usenet and torrents. This guide shows you how to install SickRage on your Synology NAS as simply as possible. I tested this in a virtual environment and have no doubt that it will work for your Synology NAS at home. Bear in mind there are now two SickRage repositories, one is maintained by the original creator and the other is made by a group of developers who used to work on the original project.
