Have Sonarr remove/blacklist/search static downloads automatically

I would love for Sonarr to be able to see that a download has been static(Time left = 00:00:00) for lets say 2 days(input adjustable variable). Then Remove, blocklist, and search for a new season/episode until the request is fulfilled. I only have access to public sites so my downloads are very frequently hit or miss.

Currently, I have to sort through time left which is not always all together in the queue. Manually select and remove the static ones.

I was oblivious to the use of categories.

That’s a contradictory statement. Either you use a download category and sonarr will already show only those downloads in the activity queue, or you don’t use a download category and sonarr will (obviously) show all downloads from your download client…

Settings > Download Clients > edit your download client(s) and set a category.
You probably also have to configure this category in your download client.

Gotcha. Sorry, I misunderstood the use case for the category system. The guides I followed just said to leave that setting blank. That is on me for not looking more into that system.
