I had a breakthrough in re-automating my television series downloads today! A few years back, I was using some random program that would grab torrent files for me and pretty much automated the download process for new TV shows, except for the sorting aspect.
Yesterday I started looking into a program called Sonarr. It does exactly what I was looking for, and a lot more! It integrates with my torrent downloaded, and it even sorts the episode files into the proper directories on the Plex server. It also scans that files I already have and tells me what I’m missing! I found quite a few random episodes of different shows here and there that I was missing for god knows what reasons. I love this software!
Tonight will be its first live test. There are several shows on tonight that I download, so we’ll see how it works out. It worked amazing in all my tests, and even helped me get some of the missing episodes. (I had to go digging manually for some others as they were QUITE old and hard to find.)
