Installing Sonarr in OSMC

I am new to OSMC, and am experimenting with what it can do on the Raspberry Pi. So I wanted to try setting up Sonarr, and maybe some other similar programs on it. First question, can I have it download to a NAS?
Second, will it affect performance noticeably?
And third, How do I install it? I don’t even see a run command in OSMC to attempt.
Is there a beginners guide I can glean from to assist in learning?

Step 1: Mount a directory from your NAS into OSMC.

Step 2: Save files to it.

I’ve not noticed any performance problems with saving files over the network. Sorry, can’t help with Sonarr. You might find a guide somewhere online for how to install it on linux?

You can install sonarr from its depoaitory. You need to install mono first, then add the sonarr depository and install like this…
sudo apt-get install apt-transport-https -y
echo “deb master main” | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install nzbdrone -y
sudo chown -R osmc:osmc /opt/NzbDrone

Sorry to go off-topic but I think you got the answer you were looking for.

How is Sonarr different from Flexget? It looks like it has a gui, but other than that?

Has anyone used both to where they can give a differential opinion?

Sonarr, to the best of my knowledge, is limited to TV show management, akin to sickbeard and its family of related projects.
From a quick look at FlexGet, it does a lot more than Sonarr or sickbeard on their own.

That being said, Sonarr does look to have a very flashy webUI - indeed visually it looks a lot better than SickRage.

Yea, very good looking program. From what I read, it will download, but only from Usenet. (So of course you’ve got to pay for a Usenet subscription.)

Sonarr will also download torrents - some sites built in (eztv kickass and a few more) or add your own favourite sites
