So, like I said, you’re not understanding what I told you. You are intentionally grabbing releases that DON’T follow scene numbering and are following TVDB numbering and then asking Sonarr to process them.
The 2nd part of the XEM logic in Sonarr is when it processes the import/sorting/file moving logic. You can’t even let Sonarr see those downloads in your client or it will apply XEM scene mapping to them. When I said you need to manually download those, that doesn’t mean the “manual download” in Sonarr. The downloads need to NOT use the Sonarr category in your download client so that Sonarr doesn’t try to process them at all.
To be more clear, manually download also means you will need to move the file into your TV shows library location ALL MANUALLY. Then let Sonarr discover the file already in place, pre-numbered to match the TVDB numbering.
If you’re going to continue grabbing releases that don’t match scene numbering, you don’t want to let Sonarr process any importing/sorting logic or it’s going to use the XEM scene mapping on the episode number.
I hope you finally get the process flow at this point or I give up.
