NZBget on the pi (Raspbian), Sonarr on the windows machine (has the pi mounted as a WebDAV drive)

If I can make a suggestion here, move your download mechanisms to your windows machine and your automations stay on the PI.

I'd also recommend dockerizing them so you don't have to deal with system dependency bullshit. Don't let sonarr radarr managed the files, let NZBget do it on the windows box.

You've got a complicated setup here and it's kind of scotch taped together (not your fault!).

Simplify. Wherever you want your downloads to end up is where your downloader should be.

Ideally you'd run everything on a Linux host dockerized and keep your system clean. Maybe you have an old machine you can set up for this?

In your Sonarr configuration, have you entered details about your NZBGet instance, such as it's IP, u/p, download folder etc.

I would, but, again, I don't want to leave my PC constantly running 24/7, and some of these files are quite large. The reason the download clients are on the Pi is because that's low-power and I can leave it running for months on end with little to no issues.

Yes, otherwise it wouldn't be able to download in the first place.

Sorry if I missed it, but why WebDAV of all things? I can't imagine that being anything but horrible for any use that isn't transferring complete files over an internet connection.

It may not be related to your problem, but it is going to drastically limit how many people are capable of helping you work with it.

If there is not some really weird requirement in play you should definitely use Samba for local network shares being accessed by Windows machines.

I'm using webDAV because for Sonarr's remote path mapping to work, it needs a local path that... has access to the remote files, apparently. So, if I mount it as a WebDAV drive, it has a local path to the remote files, and can import them via that.

You can use many protocols to connect remote drives, the ones that are better than WebDAV are Samba, NFS and maybe even SSHFS. The process of mounting a Samba drive is very similar to a WebDAV one but with a better protocol.

https://www.redhat.com/sysadmin/samba-windows-linux

Specifically, look at the sections about hosting a Linux share and accessing it from a Windows client with a drive mapping. I don't know if this will fix any problems you're having but it's definitely possible the webdav connection has some problems, the drive having 8 EB of space is also an indicator.

Can't help you here. You're also now mixing mountain duck into the mix as well

My suggestion, like others have said, is to start with a typical configuration on a single machine and get it working. Once you understand it better you'll can try abstracting between machines (if you must, I also don't see a good reason too).

A) Webdav sucks poo poo period, which is why people are saying to look at smb/CIFS.
B) No one is saying 24/7/365 but rather get a simple system going then expand it out when you know WTF you're doing.
C) What you are doing doesn't make any sense anyway unless you're on dialup. Sonarr is on your PC that isn't on 24/7 as you've said 237948 times. So you have a 6 hour window where things are going to be going to nzbget. Where 8-11 minutes later it'll be done. the other 18 hours the Pi isn't going to be looking for anything because it's not geting any instructions. So why is nzbdget and sonarr not on the same machine? If both were on Windows you'd get the files. If both were on Pi you'd get the files. And in no case would you be loving around with Webdav.

yeah i think when i originally installed sonarr i was being a dumbass and installed it on my pc because of dumb reasons

so, i'm going to install it on my pi, and that should solve my problems
but now, unrelated to any of this, apt is being a shithead again and earlier it turned out my root disk was full of garbage - so im fixing both of those before i do it

LTTP here but highly recommend dropping raspbian for dietpi. Everything just works and runs very well on my Pi 4.

I use it for docker, plex server, radarr, sonarr, sabnzbd, tautulli, overseerr, and nginx proxy manager. No slow downs, crashes, etc in over 6 months running 24/7.

actually im starting to think its the fact i ticked the "let plex gently caress with your network to allow access from outside your LAN" thing
it was not this bad before

Just get one windows computer and stop complicating things. Literally Iím not near a pc but I can think of 3 steps to make this work on windows pc with a bunch of hard drives slammed in there, not in a raid or anything just diff drives = diff drive letter. Who cares about leaving a computer on for power and using a Pi cause itís lower? Just pay the loving power bill to have a computer on.



I get so frustrated at setups like yours but I mean itís not mine so really how much do I care.

Personally i like to use a Fitbit synced to my yoga patterns to send a signal to my Pi that's connected to a hard disk, that sends a command to one of my Kubernetes deployments (One of them running on my toaster I outfitted with more RAM), that runs NZBGet and Radarr -- in different regions and server providers because I don't trust AWS. After it's downloaded it FTPs it back to my pi so Radarr can pick it up.

before i get another 70 posts about how im overcomplicating poo poo im going to preface this entire post by saying i have simplified everything and it is all now running on my pi, since apparently some people cant tilt their eyes upward to read anything other than the most recent post

right now sonarr is being a little poo poo and deciding sometimes it'll be accessible via port 8989 after a restart, and sometimes it'll act as if it wasn't even running (i've checked, the daemon is running)

if you have dhcp assigned ips, vpns or other things that start on boot, make sure sonarr is delayed-start to the end or it might bind to every ip except a new dhcp that comes up late or something
