Newbie questions - foreign shows?


#1

I wonder is it possible to use sonarr for foreign, say Russian shows ?

I saw some info related to this https://flexget.com/Plugins/List/sonarr_list, but not even sure how to install a plugin for sonarr.

Thx in advance!

It kinda works, but the show needs an english entry on thetvdb.com

Not sure about that flexget plugin, as far as I can tell you can use it to manage sonarr from within flexget. So you’d run into the same issue. For a show to be able to be added to sonarr, an english entry needs to exist on thetvdb.

Thanks!

How do I setup thetvdb.com in sonarr?


#4

You don’t,
It already makes use of it


#5

Interesting.
But sonarr does not seem to be able to find a show say in Russian even tho it can be found via thetvd.com

Is it sonarr shortcoming ?


#6

Is there English Metadata for it as @Thirrian asked? Have you read the FAQ? (this is also mentioned there).

@markus101

I think there is.
If I search for Мажор , I can fins it in thetvdb.com

But not in sonarr if I use Russian, in English as Major it works.

You didn’t read the FAQ

So there’s only a Russian Title for it.

@TRaSH
Thanks!

It seems to be a good feature to consider for future.

Also interesting that both English and Russian records refer to the same ID
