... Docker and NZBGet stuff ...

The Docker applications are not Synology specific and therefore have a bigger install / support base, generally very fast to update to latest builds. They also have a common setup through Docker for your network and directory preferences which is probably a bit more flexible if you need that option.
In DSM Docker application, Containers sub-menu, right click the container and do settings export. That saves the config settings - save it somewhere you will backup.
Docker backup - in the docker file share make a directory for each container and point that container to use that for config and runtime data. You can backup each of those, or depending on the container application, a subset of what's in there. The Hyperbackup utility allows for directory level selection. It's what I do.

NZBGet can be finicky. Here's my config items of note on a 918, it gets 50-60MB/s without DSM ssd cache, and it jumped to 70-80MB/s with ssd cache drives added on a 1GB link, running in a Docker container. Ensure the news server setting has connections set to 50 or whatever that provider allows. If you have multiple, put them in the same level group so they can download in parallel. Turn FlushQueue off. Set ContinuePartial=No. Set ArticleCache=1024. Set DirectWrite=Yes. Set WriteBuffer=1024. PostStrategy=Balanced. DirectUnpack=No. UnpackPauseQueue=Yes. I also have the Completion and FailureLink extension scripts loaded to for some added smarts on downloading.

Hey thanks for this! Gunna look into backing up that stuff, although it wasn' ttoo hard to install, I imagine it's sort of annoying to set all the API keys and ports and PUIDs and stuff like that so if I could just pop those settings right in next time, that'd be swell. I kinda hosed up my Storage Pool and really don't need a SHR on all 4 of my drives and could probably keep 2 on SHR for personal files/photos (+ cloud backup), and the other 2 in a non-raid for movies/tv storage pool that I can just redownload if they do fail; so I may be looking at trying to back up most of it and wiping the DSM for a second time sometime here soon unless there's an easy way to downsize an SHR and get rid of a few drives from it without it going into Degraded status, but a cursory Google says that's not really possible.

I'm surprised and SSD cache really makes that big of a difference. That's the M.2 NVME port at the bottom that you can pop one in right? I did run a speedtest on the NAS and was getting pretty much my full gigabit speeds, but I guess that's not the same thing as actually downloading files. I think SABNZB is working well at the moment but I'll keep your post saved here incase I need to try NZBGet again.

Similar to Ombi, just discord bot based. Can interface with Ombi using users already setup or it's own, or directly with Radarr/Sonarr. It's an easy way to request without opening ports or firing up a VPN.

I’m following a weekly show that it’s not supported by Sonarr and I’m wondering if I could still automate it somehow. The releases are mostly named like this:

BRAND.SHOWNAME.YYYY.MM.DD.USAN.720p.WEB.h264-HEEL

with the “YYYY.MM.DD” obviously being the airdate of the episode. I used to have an RSS feed set up that would grab every new release that included the brand, show name and 720p but I eventually abandoned that solution because it led to a lot of duplicate. I’m wondering if it is possible to do something like the RSS feed I had, but in a way where SABNZBD doesn’t grab it if a release with an identical filename already exists in its history. Ideally, I would like it so that if the following releases of the show get posted (both are the same episode):

BRAND.SHOWNAME.YYYY.MM.DD.720p.HDTV.x264-Star
BRAND.SHOWNAME.YYYY.MM.DD.720p.WEB.h264-HEEL

It would grab whichever one gets posted first and skip the other, tho I imagine something like this will not be possible.

I thought wrestling stuff was generally carried by tvdb now so thus supported in Sonarr. I don’t watch that particular one, but my setup picks up their Wednesday one fine altho sometimes needs a nudge to import it after grabbing.

Oh hey, that sounds pretty neat, thanks for the tip. I've just recently started using Ombi but tbf, it's kind of a pain to initially get it setup and give out info, and msot of all, actually have people actually use it, or remember to use it. probably better just to have people msg me, but this may be a better option because everyone has Discord and it's more accessible without a port forward and account stuff.

I kind of wish I could just use some sort of Plex plugin that integrates an Ombi-like feature to add requests into sonarr/radarr.

I kind of wish I could just use some sort of Plex plugin that integrates an Ombi-like feature to add requests into sonarr/radarr.

I set up a whole category for media related stuff in my server, one channel for reporting fakes/faulty/wrong subs/whatever, another channel where Radarr notifies on additions, and Sonarr, though just a select few, didn't want it to be spammed too much. Also a channel for "announcements". I still prefer Ombi, but I almost always have discord open, I don't always have a tab open for Ombi/Organizr. So a bit more convenient to use sometimes.

I also have a channel for bazaar notifications, was curious how much of the work it's doing for subs compared to Emby, looks like not much. I want to have Bazaar handle them and disable downloading subs in Emby, Bazaar has features like upgrading subs, but I'm not entirely sure how quickly Bazaar downloads subtitles, is it just once a day? Or as they're downloaded on notification from Radarr/Sonarr? Edit: Looks like every 3 hours based on the settings, looks like Emby only does it daily. I'll just disable it in Emby and see how it goes.

Does this allow you to approve what gets downloaded first or does it just send it to Radarr and Sonarr? I like to put shows and movies in certain folders and put certain settings on TV shows and movies depending on what they are.

Not directly no. But you can connect it to Ombi instead of Radarr/Sonarr and setup approvals there. You can also link discord users with Ombi users, so quotas, limits, etc all still work properly, and you can also see who the request is coming from.

Being able to manage the approval process in Ombi is on their feature tracker, near the top in votes, though probably not a short term goal.

Edit: Also did a little testing with subtitles, Bazaar and Emby both search/download subs immediately, assuming they're available. The 3 hour timeframe in Bazaar/daily in Emby is for subtitles that aren't available at that point.

I think I don't understand how release profiles work in Sonarr. How can I make it so that Sonarr prefers Amazon rips but will download something else if it can't find any, and will upgrade if it's found at a later time?

My setup is a release profile I call 'webscore' that then has the following values

.AMZN. 50
.IT. 40
.ITUNES. 40
.NF. 40
.HULU. 40
.DSNY. 40
.WEB. 30

which I then add to every show I track, and it works well. You can tell when it's in effect because if you do a manual search for an episode you'll now see scores next to it. The scores I've given are a bit arbitrary as I was expecting to have to amend this quite a few times, but honestly this is essentially my day 1 attempt with a few tweaks (adding the .s was important!).

I've noticed that .WEB. now often comes from better sources than it indicates so I get some duplication, but it's not a huge amount and I'm uncapped so I don't really care.

Maybe y'all can help. I'm running Sonarr/Radars/NZBget on a beefy PC, storing on a USB external HDD and then playing on an RPi3 with OSMC (so Kodi), mounting the shared external over SMB. The RPi is on WiFi, the PC is hardwired cat6 to the router.

I have trouble with buffering almost anything that downloads in 1080p. I know the RPi can't handle x265, so I exclude that, but even x264 stuff will get choppy and ill have to pause so it can buffer. My best guess is that it's bitrate/filesize related rather than decoding related, because bigger files tend to cause more problems.

The easiest fix I've found is to just prioritize 720p profiles in the Any quality category, which seems to work fine, but it seems like the RPi3 should be able to handle 1080p video, and it seems like the network should be able to handle ~2.5 gigs over 45 minutes, and it seems like the HDD and the USB interface should be able to as well, considering I can download the same file in, like 5 minutes, to the same drive.

What might be my bottleneck? The WiFi? My PS4 is able to get 1080p video over WiFi, an inch or two away from the RPi.

As long as you've got the right mono packages installed its just a case of downloading, extracting and running it

I'm not sure what mechanism freebsd uses to launch services , but neither init nor systemd are hard to figure out

It wasn't complicated on my old centos server anyway

Pi WiFi speed is terrible. You might get slightly better results using Plex Server on your PC and the Pi as a client. But at that point you can just use Plex on the PS4.

I was having exactly the same issues when I set up a pi with osmc a few weeks ago but I was sharing over NFS and not Samba. After a bunch of digging I found the performance of NFS shares which have been added with the gui perform significantly worse than shares mounted in fstab. When I switched it over all of my buffering issues disappeared. I don't know if that same issue applies to samba shares but it might be worth a shot.

Its more that if I do all that I have to undo it some point in the future to go back to packages.

I can just definitely just extract it over the top of the existing install, or beside it and change the rc.d scripts appropriately.

But like I said... Then I have to fix it later when they release it

I find Kodi to be almost useless on WiFi without modifying the caching. The defaults are way too optimistic and will make you buffer with the slightest disruption.

Assuming config is saved in the same place that would involve deleting a directory and a init file

Oh wow. I should mention that the Samba shares are mounted with fstab (much easier than figuring out whatever GUI tools might be there, and OSMC doesn't have much in the way of stuff outside Kodi), so I wouldn't be surprised if Kodi just thinks it's a local drive and doesn't do any caching. That would make sense.

What settings do you use?
