Hi,
I'm just starting with all this and I'm pretty new to linux (before i just used SABnzb and Filebot with my local nas). I just finished the setup from radarr and nzbget and go on step by step. But I have the problem that some movies I can not download automatically with radarr, so I find them somewhere else.

So what is the best way to manually download with the plexguide setup?

What I did now:
- I downloaded one .nzb and imported it manually to nzbget for download. The completed movie is now in /mnt/downloads/nzbget/movies
--> What is the best way to proceed from here? I want the files to be uploaded to to tcrypt and from there I assume radarr will autoscan the folder and add it to the existing movies.

My idea:
1) i manually rename the movie and move it to /mnt/downloads/movies/. From there it should be upload and put into the correct tdrive folder. Is this correct?

Thank you for your advice!

Hi Dexter,

I believe if you move the entire folder of said movie into:

Code:
/mnt/move/movies/
The output should then be looking something like
Code:
/mnt/move/movies/your-movie-folder-ready-formatted-as-is-here/Moviename-Someyear.mkv
Then have a look at your PGUI which should now discover this and start the proper processes to upload / move files as it should.
