This is re the error message: “Series runtime is 0, unable to validate size until it is available” when searching for releases.
I know this issue was raised a few years back and the finger was pointed at the tvdb API, but two years later and it’s still happening. For me it’s an almost daily occurence. Today I had to manually download two shows, Lincoln Lawyer and Essex Serpent.
Is there anything I can do to mitigate this issue? If there isn’t, is it maybe time to build something in to Sonarr to help address this problem when an external service breaks in this way? Could we have a setting that lets you stipulate the default runtime for a show when it’s added in case the API returns a 0 value?
