I’m new here, I haven’t even installed Sonarr yet – not even sure if I will, but I’m looking for a replacement for SickBeard that I have been using forever. I came here looking for more information about Sonarr but this thread caught my attention because I have just been fighting with the very issue that chroma601 mentions.
The episode name/number issues with this series seem to be a problem across the various index sites and releases all because some [expletive expletive] clown at CBS thought it would be smart to run a double-length first episode titled as Part 1 and Part 2, but to only count it as one episode.
This immediately became a problem for people like us because everyone posting the show posted that double length as either two separate episodes s01e01 and s01e02 or as a combined s01e01-e02
That problem has continued because the episodes being posted continue to be numbered as if the original double was episodes 1 & 2, but CBS insists that The Curse of Cleopatra Part 1 and The Curse of Cleopatra Part 2 together are episode 1, which then made Code of the Hawaladar episode 2 and so on.
The episode that just aired July 9th was officially s01e08 The Shadow of Projekt Athena but every copy posted anywhere is posted as e01e09
So we have the official series website listing the episodes one way and everyone posting them a different way. Likewise different database and index sites are counting these episodes differently. For example thetvdb.com has the episodes listed the “official” way with Curse of Cleopatra Parts 1 & 2 together as Episode 1, while imdb.com counts that initial double as episodes 1 & 2 (like everyone else, and like every TV show before this always has counted it when they did a two-hour premiere)
Until (unless) all the various indexing sites and all the posters agree on something, the only way to manage collecting this show is to manually download episodes and verify the actual content.
Actually the problems with this particular show is what pushed me to (again) look for a replacement for SickBeard, because whatever site SB uses to get its episode titles is even more screwed up than average.
