This really needs to be addressed.
TVDB is at a point where it’s rendering Sonarr utterly pointless for new releases. As time goes on this problem will only become worse with more tv shows, and less tvdb moderators.
TVDB does not have a sustainable method of operation.
I can understand they lock the series to prevent vandalism, but like wikipedia, the best solution is to let the community moderate the content.
I suspect this will never happen.
We need to be able to use alternative sources for the series metadata. even if it’s local.
If not Sonarr might as well change it’s log line to ‘Sonarr, making automation manual again’.
