1. Intro

Sonarr is one of the most recognized programs utilized in order to obtain, maintain, and upgrade a user's TV show quality content. Sonarr operates in a hasty and efficient manner and provides a high degree of confidence in organizing and renaming files to be recongized both by Plex & Emby. For USENet, Sonarr works both with NZBGET & SABNZBD.

Sonarr is a PVR for USENet and BitTorrent users. It can monitor multiple RSS feeds for new episodes of your favorite shows and will grab, sort and rename them. It can also be configured to automatically upgrade the quality of files already downloaded when a better quality format becomes available.

2. Access Information

a. General Access

To access the program after deployment, you can reach it via the following methods. Subdomain access is only accessible by setting up Traefik.

b. 3rd Party Connection Tips

  • Sonarr to NZBGET, type nzbget in the address (not or the IP)
  • Sonarr to SABNZBD, type sabnzbd in the address (not or the IP)

4. General Configuration

Generally, the follow actions must be taken for both USENET and Torrents. Select settings as highlighted below.

Next, select media management. From here, scroll down until you see Episode Naming. Make sure to turn that on. If not, file names will be stored as is and may complicate the setup with Plex and/or Emby

The last task to accomplish for media management is turn on advanced settings @ placement #1. Next, scroll down to file management and [TURN OFF] analyse video files. If left on, it will ring up your API usage for G-Suite and result in slower scans being conducted by Sonarr.

Select Save and then move onward to either configuration of NewsGroups or that of Torrents.

5. Configuration - NewsGroups

a. Setting up Indexers

News Group indexer information is generally easy to setup. The great thing about Sonarr and Radarr is that there is prebuilt list of indexers to select from (meaning you do not have to discover them on your own). Select the [+] symbol in order to add an indexer.

Next, you will see custom and presets. Custom should only be used if the indexer your utilizing is not on the preset list. If on the preset list, select it.

Finally from here, type/paste in the API key and then [Save].

b. Setting Up a Downloader

i. General Information

This part is generally easy to accomplish. It is recommend to have NZBGET or SABNZBD deployed before moving on. First, start by selecting download clients and then selecting the [+] symbol.

You only have two choices primarily to choose from. Select either NZBGET or SABNZBD and then follow the instructions below based on your choice.

ii. Setting up NZBGET

  1. Type in the Name nzbget

  • On the "Download Client" tab we will add rutorrent or deluge. RUTORRENT:
  • Click the add symbol and add click rtorrent.
  • Give it a name
  • For host give it an ip address or domain name.(you can try localhost here but sometimes that doesn't work.)
  • Port: 8999 (write down your port when doing the rtorrent container install it might be different to mine.)
