Sonarr version (exact version): 188.8.131.5201
Mono version (if Sonarr is not running on Windows):184.108.40.206
OS: Raspbian GNU/Linux 9 (stretch)
Description of issue: My hardware configuration is divided up into 3 systems:
- Raspberry Pi: This acts as the central control of my media center environment. It is my file server (external 5 disk HD array for storage), and process server (Sonarr, Plex, etc.)
- Seedbox: I run a virtual server in the cloud for remote file sharing processes (openvpn, transmission, aMule, etc.)
- Asus: My router is an RT-AC68U with an external HD attached, acting as the central file storage for all active media for house/cloud distribution (organized by Plex on the RPi).
The RPi controls access to all three of these distributed parts for media and controls the flow.
- Seedbox: /home/user/zDL/transmission/ is the native storage location.
- Asus: /Media is the active partition on the external hard drive. /Media/My Video/TV/ are how the media files are organized for Plex.
- Raspberry Pi: There are multiple mount points for the above and local:
/mnt/Seedbox is the local mount point for seedbox:/home/user/
/mnt/Media is the local mount point for Asus:/Media
(/mnt/Orico[1-5] is the mount point for the 5 bay HD, for all non-active archival stored media.)
I have Sonarr configured in a very functional way, but I think I might be missing an opportunity to use more of it’s automation. Currently, Sonarr has all my TV shows configured and uses RSS feeds to send new torrent information to Seedbox. It does NOT do any of my management after that.
Transmission stops itself after it hits the configured ratio. The Raspberry Pi uses an hourly cron job to run a script that (1) rsync pulls down/removes all Seedbox data (2) flattens the directory structure temporarily to organize the files (3) moves the appropriate media files to their respective Asus TV directory. Plex then automatically does the rest.
I dismissed using Sonarr for this part, because when I first started using this in November, I assumed the transmission data had to be on the same system running Sonarr. Now that I have more experience with Linux, my mount points look like that can SIMULATE one system with my Raspberry Pi touching all 3 locations. I’m wondering how I can maybe make changes that Sonarr itself continues from where it stops on my world and move the files from Seedbox to Asus/Orico# in some way.
I see the “Path” and “Root Folder” on the series editor and wondered if the file management does that? My initial assumption is that I put in the destination. I’ve put in /mnt/Media/My Video/TV/Arrow as a test. I’ve also put in 'mnt/Orico3/Media/TV/Flash as another. In general, I’ve ignored the whole “Root Folder” thing due to a lack of understanding and/or a work-around.
Anyone have any suggestions as to how I can maybe configure Sonarr (and my other environments) so that it can do more of the work unilaterally? I can control anything on the Seedbox, Asus, or Raspberry Pi (directory structure, mount points, configuration, etc.) easily enough. I just don’t seem to grasp how to help me make Sonarr replace my custom RPi shell script.
Any advice, greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!
