Blacklist and replace download to replace with a different version


Sometimes Sonarr downloads a file with issues (e.g. subtitled in korean). Is there a way to blacklist and re-download the episode?

The only way I can find to do this is to manually search for a replacement.



Either Activity: History or the history for the episode and you can mark the release as failed and Sonarr will ask if you want to Blacklist it (which will also kick off another search). Sonarr could end up getting a similar release with the same issue so interactive search might be your best bet.


Got it! Thanks for helping out.
I figured out that history was the right place, but did not realize that sonarr shows two lines for the same file. I was focusing on the last line “episode picked up” and not on the previous one with the red X icon.
