Status Modes

SickGear episodes can be set a status that can affect :

  • Searching
  • Downloaded state
  • Individual episode count (#this# / ## episodes downloaded) in the web ui footer
  • Total episode count ( ## / #this# episodes downloaded) in the web ui footer

Migrating SickBeard users note; "Ignored" and "Skipped" have more impact on processes here.

When a known episode media file is removed, its status can change to one set in config/Post-Processing/File Handling. It is recommended to change this option to "Set Archived". Only episodes with status "Downloaded" can change to status "Archived".

A "Wanted" episode must be "Snatched" before it can be marked "Downloaded". To override, change "Wanted" to "Skipped".

Status Type

The status type indicates the episode stage and/or state :

  • Wanted
    • marks an episode ready to search for a suitable match
    • does not count toward individual episode count
    • is included in total episode count
    • is protected from accidental manual change to 'Downloaded' or 'Archived'
  • Ignored
    • marks an episode to exclude from search and other processes
    • excludes the episode from all stat counts and progress bars
  • Skipped
    • the episode file does not exist
    • is auto assigned to episodes not matched in the "Limited backlog search" period
    • must be manually changed to status Wanted in order to be searched
    • does not count toward individual episode count
    • is included in total episode count and progress bars (except for Specials)
  • Snatched
    • is currently in a download client
    • does not count toward individual episode count
    • is included in total episode count and progress bars
  • Failed
    • the snatch flagged as failed in the download client
    • marks the episode as one to try for an alternative release
  • Downloaded (Quality)
    • has completed download and/or has been post-processed
    • is plus one toward the individual episode count
    • is included in total episode count
    • an episode file can be "Low" or "Best" quality
      • "Low" is shown by shading the episode row pink when a selected higher quality in the "Custom" -> "Initial" and "Upgrade to" lists is still being targetted
      • "Best" is shown by shading the episode row green when an episode file matches a preset "Quality" target, or the highest desired quality selection of the "Custom" -> "Upgrade to" lists
  • Archived
    • this status can be preferred over Ignored/Skipped to mark an episode. It is used where an episode is known to have existed via a filesystem check during the daily update, and where the file is later deleted or archived offline. The post processing setting "Status of removed episodes" should be set to "Set Archived"
    • is plus one toward the individual episode count
    • is included in total episode count and progress bars
