  1. Sonarr (formerly NzbDrone) is a PVR for Usenet and BitTorrent users.

    Basically downloaded Sonarr https://sonarr.tv/ and then used Jackett https://github.com/Jackett/Jackett to get Sonarr to talk to a private tracker. Not sure I could go through it step by step again, it was a bit of trial and error. The only thing I have not figured out is how to either exclude .rar files or to automatically extract them. The software I downloaded for that has never worked quite right.
  2. A fork of Sonarr designed to work with Movies.

    Pfft, that's so 10 years ago. Run Plex/Sonarr/Radarr, add the name of a show (sonarr) or movie (radarr), automatically download to self-hosted Plex, and stream right to your TV.
  3. The sane way to manage software on Windows.
