How to resolve show matching an alias on TVDB?

I have some UK shows I watch that have variants (XL or Uncut) - same episode but longer/uncut versions.

For example QI (TVDB ID: 72716) also has QI XL (TVDB ID: 369316). Same series numbering, etc… I have QI added in Sonarr and it shows alternate titles of “Alternate Titles BBC QI (Quite Interesting) BBC QI”. Recently it will not download new episodes with this note on the manual search:
"QI matches an alias for series with TVDB ID: 369316".
And the title says unknown scene number:

        Scene Info 
        Unknown episode or series.

I can manually download a release and it correctly moves, renames, etc.

Is there a way to accept the alias as part of the series?

I read the FAQ and it mentions adding the series to, but it’s not on there and registrations are closed.

Mono Version
Ubuntu 22.04.3 LTS

I forgot that I hadn’t updated to v4, so I just did that in case it works differently. New info:
.NET Yes (6.0.13)
Database Sqlite 3.37.2
Ubuntu 22.04.3 LTS

Thanks for letting us know, that alias has been removed from 369316.

Having a similar issue with Yu Yu Hakusho.

  • Yu Yu Hakusho matches an alias for series with TVDB ID: 413737

This will be fixed as soon as caches expire.

Trying to satisfy my kid, I’m trying to get “Teletubbies (2015)” (ID: 413398), but it seems that “Teletubbies” (ID: 72662) has a matching alias

Removed this alias.
