Hope Pete is okay, but hasn't been online this year and haven't seen any updates to fix errors. So can assume it's not supported and something has happened.

What are a good alternative, Sonarr? I've grown lazy using MCM for so many years, and change is annoying. But guess all things end.

Even with the patches and fixes falling behind, I still haven't found a better alternative. I find that I have multiple programs now where Media Center Master use to be the only one.

MCM is my primary tool for sorting, renaming, meta-data, and looking for new movies automatically. The uTorrent integration seems fine still.

Trakt lets me add in new shows or movies that automatically get added to MCM.

Sonarr tied to NZBGet for filling in gaps from above. These two programs fill in for where Usenet broke in MCM, and now I have a manual step in Sonarr to add the shows to update after MCM adds these as empty folders to the library.

It's a shame that Pete isn't around as much, but after at least a decade of doing this, I understand things can change. Hopefully, if he doesn't have time for this anymore, or if it's not generating enough revenue, perhaps it could get handed off somehow for support to continue.

Shit yeah, I'm still finding MCM the best one stop shop for the process it does. I'm dreading when it finally fully fails due to the meta data fetchers changing their API.

Which some of EMBY I can just let it do, but the automated fetching of TV shows has been invaluable over the years.

Yeah, shame about Pete. I know it was a project that he personally used and the fact it's not being updated I hope doesn't mean he is no longer using it himself.
