Deluge on Raspberry Pi - All torrents require force recheck

Postby bdiz » Thu Feb 09, 2017 5:14 pm

I'm using Deluged on Raspberry pi, all torrents are going to a local USB hard drive which is samba shared to a Windows computer running the Plex Media server. All the torrents download via RSS subscription. I'd say 90% of the time I have playback issues with files downloaded with deluge, which is fixed when I do a force recheck on the file. It will verify up to somewhere around 99.4% and then download the remaining, fixing the file. Why is this a issue and what can I do to avoid it? ideally it would be nice to have a way to automatically force recheck a file after completion - but if there is a way to fix this properly I'm all ears.

I have heard of this issue, though it has only happened twice to me (out of 300+ torrents).

RPI+localUSB (ext4) with kodi+samba share for remote Win PC (not using plex so but well Kodi locally on the RPI). I never faced this issue.
Do you think possible the plex server locks somehow the file ? Can you try to stop the Plex server+complete a download on the RPI
A check through the samba share after completion will tell you the story and maybe give a clue

I faced this issue a while ago, and it turned out to be a problem with the "run on startup" config. How did you set it up?

are you downloading the files into the same folder that Plex is using for streaming those files ??

Sorry for the late bump, I didn't know I had replies :-|

I just followed a random tutorial online to get deluge running on RPi 3, is there a run on startup configuration setting I need to fix?

I'm downloading the files to a local USB hard drive connected to the Raspberry Pi. I have that hard drive shared via samba for windows to access it, and told plex to look for video files on //RASPBERRYPI/Plex/

I tried exchanging the hard drive with an SSD and while I'm happy with the speed increase I still have to force recheck every torrent and 9/10 are redownloading @ 99.9x%

Wouldn't plex locking the file just simply error the download, not return that it's 100% complete and good to go? Plex has a setting to automatically detect changes to a folder, but that feature doesn't work on network shares according to their support forum, (I have it set to manually check the networkshare every hour) But I never have to recheck torrents if I use qbittorrent on my windows machine instead of the RPi going to the same network share.
