As you all know. Sonarr is first designed for NZB and Torrent users. But, as you may know, there is a small part of the population that uses Direct Downloads.
For that, I only can talk about me and couple of friends.
We are all on a DS214Play (but that doesn’t change anything) and we are using Download Station or JDownloader 2 as download clients.
The fact is that, when we download files, we can’t set categories/tags on them. Consequences are that there is no communication between Sonarr and the download client, meaning no download tracking (well, on Sonarr) and no Complete Download Handling process.
Of course, Sonarr is the full automatic process chain, but, we want to use it as semi-automatic. (By feeding him manually, yeah guys, it’s less expansive)
You are going to remove the Drone Factory folder, which is currently our only solution to keep a track on our TV Shows and let Sonarr sorting them. (We can still keep tracking without the Drone Factory, but Sonarr is sorting them so well…)
We respect your system as Complete Download Handling and your wish to remove the drone factory but unfortunately, I tried, and we can’t use it (no communication, and above all, we can’t know at t instant if a file is TV, Movie or Music).
Currently, we only set up the Drone Factory Folder but without automatic scan every X minutes (settings at 0) (This can breaks archives, copying files, etc, etc).
I make a python script, that check complete download from Download Station or JDownloader and ask Sonarr to scan a the Drone Factory Folder when a file is ready to be processed. If it is a TV show file, Sonarr grabs it, it then asks FileBot to sort Movies from the remaining files. (doesn’t matter)
Anyway, this works well.
As we still want to be a part of your sheep.
My wish is then, can you just let the opportunity in your future version for us to ask Sonarr to scan a specific folder, at least on script only ? There still should be an option to ask Sonarr to do it, and not letting Sonarr doing it every x times.
We know there is manually import, but it’s… manual.
Please let the Direct Download joins your world.
Thanks in advance,
