Headless RPi 2 - Torrents

Post by Renoria » Tue Feb 20, 2018 11:36 am

Hello guys,

I've checked a few of the published guides, and they've been very helpful to set up my RPi2, but I was wondering a few stuff which as a total beginner are hard for me to sort out. I'm mainly using torrents (Sonnar for TV, and manually adding a download locally via the WebUI to Transmission for Movies)

Would really appreciate your time and help :D
  1. Is it possible to use tags/groups/other method to have TV/Movies download to a folder, say /mnt/dietpi_userdata/downloads/Movies and /mnt/dietpi_userdata/downloads/TV. If so what should I do to: set this up in transmission/sonarr, to create the folders, what permission should I give them, how to make them shareable via SAMBA.
  2. Is it possible to use Transdrone or some other app to add torrents to transmission when I'm outside my local network? Would I need to use No-IP service? Any guide around to set this up would be appreciated.
  3. Jdownloader2 is not available for DietPi, does this mean it cannot be installed? I found a github request topic in which there was a guide to make it run but I wanted to double check if that is outdated or it's OK to be used.
Thank you!

Question 2 - you can use Transmission remote GUI - this will need a no-ip type DNS arrangement and port forwarding.

For the other questions a good site for this kind of stuff is:

Sonarr and Radarr both have the ability to download to separate folders through transmission (prob other torrent clients as well but i only use transmission), one for films and one for TV

yes you can use transdrone, i prefer transdroid (made by the same person/people as transdrone) as it has a torrent search feature, you will have to do a port setup within your router though, a dns service will be required

never heard or used jdownloader2, what is it for?

Do you configure in which folder to download in Transmission or in Sonnarr/Radarr?

jdownloader2 is a download manager, useful for downloading multi-files from filehosters

in Sonarr and Radarr

go to Settings> Download Client> if you're using Transmission then click on transmission> and the bit you want to check out is Directory
