A while back, quite a few years probably, the quality feature was added to Sonarr. That worked well for a while but I found that if I tightened the limits too much I missed out on some episodes or entire seasons. Then if I loosened the limits I got all sorts of file sizes I’d prefer not to have.
I have varying preferences for file sizes. If its a really nice looking show I like larger files but if its a comedy I’m fine with a smaller size. So lets say tv show A gets released by a few groups (and its a 60 min/ep show, 1080p WEBDL):
group 1 file size = 1gb
group 2 file size = 3gb
group 3 file size = 5gb
group 4 file size = 6gb
In this case I’d like the 3gb and my limits are 1.28gb - 5.06gb. Sonarr then choses between the 3gb and the 5gb and with my luck usually its the larger file and then I sometimes go back and manually get the smaller files. Or sometimes I want the 5gb file but Sonarr gets the 3gb files. Sure I could tighten those limits, maybe 2gb - 4gb but what happens is then I start missing random episodes and/or seasons. It might work on this show, but not on the next one.
I find myself manually doing a lot of stuff in Sonarr and I think that goes against what its designed for. Any tips to solve my problem? Or am I just too picky?
