Description of issue:
Maybe I’m not fully grasping the concepts of Sonarr and not using it to its full potential.
From what I can understand, Sonarr and the like were created with the intent that a seedbox was not part of the equation. The torrent client would be run on the same system as Sonarr, and Sonarr could see when they were finished and move the file locally when done. Correct me if I am wrong on that. I used to use Sonarr on my seedbox directly but found that it was not updated regularly, and it was duplicating DLs on the drive, which was a headache. So I’ve moved to a Sonarr docker on my Unraid box.
But since I use a seedbox, my system operates a little differently. My process currently runs like this;
- Sonarr grabs a torrent from an indexer and sends it to rTorrent
- rTorrent DLs and manages which need to be seeded depending on private/public servers
- When rTorrent has finished downloading, it hot-links to a ‘sync’ folder
- Seedsync (a local Docker container app on Unraid) watches for new files in that ‘sync’ folder on the seedbox. When it sees a new file, it starts an LFTP session and downloads to a local DIR.
- I then sort TV and movies in the local DIR and run filebot.
- Processed TV and movies are moved into the DIRs that Kodi and Plex access.
The problem I think is with how the media management config works, TV show folders are being created where I don’t want them, and I can’t find any way of stopping it. Every now and then, I have to go through a clear out the stuff I don’t want, which defeats the purpose of automation.
I guess I am looking for either advice on how to integrate Sonarr into this process or the ability to disable Sonarr from creating all these folders automatically. One option that would work is that once an episode has been sent to the download client and successfully completed, it should be marked as unmonitored.
