Need Category help please

Post by HGC12229 »

I am running the latest version of Sab but there is obviously something
I do not understand about Categories.

I have created a couple of new Categories, TV and Sonarr, both of which
have a Priority of Paused and a Processing of Default. No other fields
are filled in.

My desire is to have everything that appears in the Queue to be paused.

This seems to be working properly except for the feed from Sonarr.
Anything from Sonarr immediately starts to download and, after finishing,
shows in History with a Category of Sonarr.

I cannot see what is different from the other Categories which work as
desired.

Can someone give me a hint as to where I might look to solve this?

Thanks.

I'm not a Sonarr user, but it seems the sending app can specify the 'start' status when sending the NZB into the SABnzbd queue via an API call. Maybe check your Sonarr settings?

I suspected that Sonarr might be the culprit but could not find anything.

I believe you may have put me on the right track.

Thanks much.

In Sonarr go to Settings > Download Client > Edit SABnzbd
Change the Priorty there from Default to Paused.
