Sonarr started downloading the big bang theory outside its scope of quality


** Version**
**Mono Version **
**Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS **

Description of issue:
I noticed today that Sonarr has sent around 100 releases to my download client. The releases seems all to be new releases of The Big Bang Theory in WEBDL-1080p of size over 30GB. This is way more than I have specified in quality settings. See the attached images.
Here is an example: The.Big.Bang.Theory.S04.1080p.AMZN.WEBRip.DDP5.1.x265-SiGMA[rartv]

There are two problems that needs to be fixed:

  1. The cause of this
  2. How would I stop over 100 downloads…

No it’s not.

Your limit for WEB-DL 1080p is 1.68GB for a 30 minute episode, season 04 has 24 episodes, which would allow over 40GB to be grabbed in a season pack.

You can either stop them in your download client or remove them from Sonarr (since it’s a season pack removing one episode in the season will remove them all once Sonarr syncs up with the download client).


oh, I get it. Season pack eh. I got tricked thinking it was ~30GB per episode(insane quality, right).

Could it be made clearer in the GUI stating it is downloading a pack of episodes and that I should not worry even though Sonarr and Transmission is saying one episode is ~30GB?
