Remember that by default we only record the person image URL and don't actually download it until it's needed by an emby app. So chances are it probably is working as intended
I read that in other post as well. I'm just reporting how my system behaves, then If this is true what would be the point of jpg actor images in the same "persons" folder with XML file?
