Description

A fork of Sonarr to work with movies à la Couchpotato.

Version management

Server wide installation is updated every 30 minutes. Once installed you have the option to use the build-in updater to update to any version you would like.

Switching branch version in Radarr

Once you have accessed your Sonarr V3 go to Settings > General . Make sure you click Show advanced in top right corner. Once clicked a branch filed will be revealed under Updates . Make sure you change branch from master to develop . Once changes , click save changes in top right corner. After all that is done go to System and under Updates you will be able to tell Radarr to install latest updates (if Radarr haven't triggered it manually). Radarr will then start the update and once then it will reboot the app.

Connecting to rTorrent

As described above, by default, your Sonarr install is configured to send snatched torrents to your torrent watch folder. However, if you want to customize things like the download directory of your torrents, you will need to connect Sonarr to rTorrent directly. These features are useful if you want to do atypical post processing like separating your anime from your other shows or even just prefer to use Sonarr's processing over the built in Filebot script.

Here are the settings needed for connecting to rTorrent:

  1. Access the "Download Client" tab of your Sonarr settings
  2. Tick on "Advanced Settings" so it shows "Shown"
  3. Click the plus sign.
  4. Select rTorrent from the list of clients.
  5. Fill in the following info:
    • Name: whatever you like.
    • Host: YOUR CUSTOM URL or USER.SERVERNAME.bysh.me
    • Port: 80
    • URL Base: /rutorrent/plugins/httprpc/action.php
    • Username: your username.
    • Password: your password.
    • Category: whatever you like.
    • Directory: whatever you like, optional.
    • Recent/Older Priority: whatever you like.
  6. Test the connection, if all is well, it should successfully connect.
  7. Disable the default black hole "download client" in order to use the rTorrent client.

You should now have rTorrent enabled as a download client. Remember to add a Torrent indexer to be able to snatch torrents to send to rTorrent!

You are of course free to customize Sonarr anyway you see fit but please know there is no support available for custom setups.
