I've never seen this one before.  For this movie I recorded from TV, the match poster looks like this:

But it replaced the defaulted image (that looks like above!) with this:

If you want to know what my metadata providers are, you'll have to tell me where to find them in the admin settings.

Would need to know your Metadata and Image provider orders.  But can replicate.

@LukeTMDB has both images, but query image is not applied image as shown above.

one image via query but two images on site.

What you see is just what comes out of the search API. The actual image you end up getting may or may not be the same as it comes via a different mechanism.

@Luke Can an improvement be made for this?

What improvement? That's just the way it is because we have image fetcher optics that we have to respect. We could take away those options if you like.

I don't understand what you are saying.  I don't know what a fetcher optic is.  I don't know what the impact would be if you removed the option.

I just expected the search result to match the final result (why would anyone expect anything different?).  That makes sense to me.

But, hey, you probably don't want to go mucking with this because of this one complaint from this one guy.  At this point, only you can decide if something should be changed.

That's the image from the search results API of your highest priority metadata fetcher.

But your top image fetcher could be a different one.

Have you explored the options for the library that the media belongs to?

Well I voted on an image to change the order.

As the image come from the priority here.

&append_to_response=alternative_titles,reviews,casts,releases,images,keywords,trailers

image.png.596cd5a9bc20ab23f3bcdd34e46accdd.png

So the issue is when there is more than one image with no votes you can have a mismatch as shown above.

Technically the Images are incorrect also as they are not "NO LANGUAGE" images.

Right the other thing is, we get the list of images and then we do our own sorting on them based on settings and other criteria that we've determined that users want over the years.

So that can sometimes lead to a different result than what moviedb picks as the first image.
