In this Lidarr Synology Configuring tutorial. Let’s set up Lidarr with the program NZBGet to automatically download the latest music. that you find interesting.
Update Lidarr Synology
Be the first to check if there is an update available for Lidarr synology
Go to System. And then to Status.
And click on the icon, with the two arrows.
And then click Install latest.
You now have to wait for the update to finish.
I had to press restart at the top right. Lidarr should do that. But that didn’t work for me.
You may also have to start it in thepackage center.
Go to Settings. Choose Media management.
Check Rename Tracks.
Click on the question mark.
Select the second option. And do the same with Multi Disc Track Format.
Check the Ignore Deleted Tracks checkbox.
Add indexers in Lidarr
We need to add an Indexer in Lidarr, so that lidarr knows where to download the nzb files from. The more you add, the better the results will be.
Go to Settingsand then Indexers.
Click on the plus.
Here you have to enter the details of your Newznab provider.
See the newznab servers list for a provider. I advise you to take at least 1 VIP membership.
You can often find the api key under you account. And then site api.
Then click on Saveand then Test.
Please include the above information. The Retenetioncan often be found on the website of your Usenet provider.
Download client Nzbget configure Lidarr Synology
We are going to set NZBGet as a download program so that NZBGet can download the desired files from the newsgroups.
Go to the Download client tab.
Click on the plus.
Enter your details from NZBGet,. Click on Testand if that’s OK on Save.
Lidarr quality settings
You can indicate here what the minimum size of your music files should be. This can be very useful for clearing up some clutter.
I would set a minimum size of 1mb overall. And for FLAC 3MB.
Kodi database updaten Lidarr
If you use Kodi, or another system to manage your music. Then you often have to update the library. Below I explain how you do that for Kodi. But you can also use it for Plex or another system.
Go to Settings. Then select Connect. Click on the Plus sign.
All checkmarks under Notification Triggers. Ensure that you see a notification in Kodi. This is not necessary to update the library.
Scroll further down. And here you will see the checkbox Update Library. This is very important otherwise Kodi will not see the new release. You have to set the rest of the checkmarks to your own taste.
Go to Settings and then Metadata. Click Kodi. And check Enable.
