Make Sonarr search titles of TV Shows instead of using TVDBID


#1

I have torrents and NZBHydra set as indexers in Sonarr.

When searching for an episode of a somewhat rare TV show on Sonarr:

This is because Sonarr is searching using these parameters:

If Sonarr had searched using the title + Episode, this would have come up

The difference in the number of results is night and day.


#2

If the indexer says they can search by TVBD ID then it is used, if they don’t or there are 0 results then Sonarr will do a title based search.


#3

Is there any way to force the indexer to only let it search by Title?


#4

No (and no plans for it), not sure if you can force NZB Hydra to do that.


#5

I’ll try and ask NZBHydra devs to implement something then. However, I do believe this is something that would aide power users and has been requested a bunch of times.


#6

Was able to achieve this by disabling ID based searches of all indexers in NZBHydra. Finally, getting decent amount of results
