Issue: Even with propers disabled in settings, releases with proper tags are still holding weight over preferred word values


Sonarr version (exact version):
Mono version (if Sonarr is not running on Windows):
OS: Ubuntu 16
Debug logs:
Description of issue:

  1. Disabled “Propers” under Settings>Media Management.

  2. Set the following Preferred Words:

    .AMZN. 105
    .NF. 99
    .NetFlix. 99
    .IP. 98
    .SKY. 98
    .HBO. 98
    .CBS. 98
    .STZ. 98
    .SYFY. 98
    .MTV. 98
    .BRAV. 98
    .HULU. 98
    .IFC. 98
    .TLC. 98
    .VH1. 98
    .ANPL. 98
    .CRKL. 98
    .VICE. 98
    .PBS. 98
    .DCU. 98
    .DSNY. 98
    .TRVL. 98
    .EPIX. 98
    .AMC. 98
    NLSub -10
    .IT. 98
    .PROPER. 7
    .REPACK. 5
    .RERIP. 3
    /(Amazon)(?=.?(WEBRip|WEB\-DL))/i 105
    /(RED)(?=.?(WEBRip|WEB\-DL))/i 98
    /(Netflix)(?=.?(WEBRip|WEB\-DL))/i 98
    /(REAL)(?=.?(PROPER))/i 10
    /(?<=(PROPER)\.)(REAL)/i 10
    NTb 10
    AJP69 5
    ViSUM 5
    CasStudio 5
    SIGMA 5
    BTN 5
    QOQ 5
    -monkee 5
  3. But despite having “propers” disabled in settings and the above preferred words, any releases with labeled with proper tags (e.g. ‘proper’, ‘repack’, etc) have more weight than the defined preferred words.

In this example, Arrow.S07E13.REPACK.1080p.WEB.h264-TBS is downloading before Arrow.S07E13.1080p.NF.WEB-DL.DD5.1.x264.1-CasStudio.

Note: Confirmed this by letting auto search/download with the magnifying glass icon.

You say more weight I clearly see only the +5 like you set.
And the nf release 99 + 5 for group name would be 104.
104 is higher then 5.


Weight as in the internal calculation Sonarr does to choose a download. The order you see in the screenshot is the order of precedence for Sonarr to pick a release to download - it’s ignoring the numbers you see there (eg 104).


There is another thread on this already, this is currently expected, disabling propers just disables upgrading to them later, it doesn’t remove their weighting.

We’ll be looking at an option to remove the additional weighting in the future.


I’d appreciate that!

I’d globally ban some of the crappier release groups if it wasn’t for certain shows depending solely on them :stuck_out_tongue:


So you’re saying when you do a manual search the first one on the top that matches your profile will be chosen ?
When I do a manual search it sorts on resolution first.
Then it looks like it sorts on filenames.
I’m on my phone now so I can make a decent screenshot
