Detect duplicate episodes in series - Not working 2.3.9?

Post by airguy » November 22nd, 2019, 9:21 am

I have been getting many duplicate downloads for TV series after upgrading to 2.3.9. I have checked my setting in config/switches/ and cycled the setting to off - save changes-discard-save changes but still not working. I noticed that I wasn't seeing a list of skipped Nzb's on the main screen like I used to. Then checking history showed many duplicate episodes being downloaded.

I downgraded back to 2.3.8. and it's working again.

Anyone else see this happening with 2.3.9?

We are not aware of any changes to the function.
Do you have example NZB's that should be detected as duplicates and could you send them to me here or at [email protected]?

Yes. My issue may be different than yours, specifically related to Catalina upgrade on Mac. Permissions issue, Sonarr is not seeing most recent episode so it wants it again and again.

EDITED TO ADD: A simple fix, but very dangerous, is to give full disk access to sh. If you don't know how to do that you can search for "Mac full disk access" and also "Mac making invisible files visible" (which you'll have to do to see sh). Doing this makes your computer very vulnerable and is not a wise thing to do. You can also look into running Sonarr from terminal. Hopefully Sonarr is going to be updated someday.

I sent you some example files to your email that I know were duplicate downloads. 2.3.8 is working fine. I might go back to 2.3.9 and try it again.
Thanks.

I have had the same problem for some time now, thought it was something on my end. Absolutely no duplicates are detected for me and I typically see dozens of dupes each day that need to be cleaned up. OS X 10.14.6.

Are you using Sonarr by any chance? If you are, it is likely Sonnar that's not detecting the new episodes. The simple solution, added to my post above, is dangerous.

No, not using Sonarr.

Well, it seems that this problem isn't universal as not many seem to have this trouble. I am staying with 2.3.8 and will try 2.4.0 when it comes out. 2.3.8 is working fine so don't want to change back for now.
BTW, am running WHS 2011 (Windows Server 2008, R2).
