I’ve had Sonarr setup for a while and it’s been great but I recently wanted to make my whole setup more automatic.
Currently I have SABnzbd as my new newsgroup client and Deluge for torrents. Sonarr and SABnzbd work great and I don’t have any complaints there but I’m having to manually manage my torrents and that’s what I’m looking to automate with Sonarr and some Deluge plugins.
What I’m looking to achieve is:
- Media is copied from my download directory to my media directory when a torrent is completed
- Torrents remain in Deluge either for a specified period of time or until a certain ratio is reached
- If a torrent comes as a bunch of RAR files they are properly extracted and removed when the torrent is completed
I have plugins for Deluge that can handle extracting RAR files in place and for handling removing torrents so that part is covered. I’m stuck on what I would need to configure on the Sonarr side. Looking at the settings the only thing that stuck out to me was unchecking “Use Hardlinks instead of Copy”. I’m assuming that would leave copies of the media in my download and then I can let my Deluge plugin cleanup the files when the torrents get removed.
Based one what I’m trying to accomplish is there anything else I would need to configure in Sonarr? Does Sonarr handle extraction of RAR files or do I still need the Deluge plugin to handle that? (I honestly don’t know often torrents come as archives anymore, but it’s definitely been a pain point for me in the past).
Thanks for any help on this!
P.S. Sorry if this isn’t clear, I’m having a tough time describing what I’m trying to achieve…
