nzb.su is indeed my only indexer. I used nzbplanet as well for abou 6 months but it seemed like it wasn’t ever getting used.
I do manual searches constantly, almost ever day. I did 3 yesterday. It still never picked Russian Doll up. I just downloaded the Russian Doll episodes with nzbhydra off searching nzb.su and they all downloaded fine in 720p. From the debug log it looks like Sonarr isn’t getting them because it doesn’t think they’re in english, for some reason (but they are)

Circling back to Top Chef, Sonarr finally grabbed the episode at 10pm last night, which is almost 24 hours after it hit the indexer. Maybe the episode that aired on-time wasn’t indexed right? This is the RSS stream:
The release at Thu, 21 Feb 2019 23:18:12 is the one that I think it should have grabbed but didn’t. The one Sonarr grabbed a day later was different.
