    Jackett vs Sonarr opinions
    This alternative is disputed. Jackett is still a legitimate alternative to Sonarr, but it might have issues that some users think are important.

    When Sonarr gets the episode naming wrong, which is often, Jackett is there for a good manual search. Also private sites or english categories can be configured in Jackett and used in Sonarr. They complement eachother.
