I've been (unsuccessfully) trying to  get my library set up properly and there's been a seemingly random issue I have that, being new I have no idea how to solve.

 

One of the four libraries in my media has an issue with it's cover image, basically it's the same cover repeated 4 times while the other libraries have 4 different images. I've tried deleting/reinstalling, refreshing metadata, different metadata settings etc., but it really is a random thing. 

 

I restarted the server once and the problem was solved but when I decided to split my movie library into 2 parts, 4K and HD, I can't seem to fix the issue no matter what I try. 

 

Just so you know my metadata settings are exactly the same for both of my movie libraries

 

I don't have a big fancy setup, just 4 sections of media which I've been working with for about 48 hours mostly by trial and error.

 

Compared to Plex there's a LOT to learn here and I I have to say I'm pretty intimidated right about now.

 

I hope somebody can help.

All the different metadata settings, where to store it, what I need, everything I didn't do with Plex.

Then why not just trust the defaults? That's all you need to do.

Because I want to get the most out of Emby and don't mind learning.  A good example is I found out that in order for backups to be effectively restored I need to save images in their respective folders, something not done by default as far as I know. 

 

This isn't helping me solve the image issue though.

 

When I initially installed Emby I wasn't too thrilled with the results for a number of reasons so as I started to read up on it I discovered a whole slew of plugins, options, etc, that I had no idea about. I have to completely commit to Emby though because some of the metadata saved to my media folders are causing havoc in Plex.

 

Plex releases continues to disappoint (and I've been with them for YEARS) with each update causing more problems than they're worth.

What do you see when you open that library?

 

What happens if you click the menu options on the library "Edit Images" and delete that image, the perform a library scan?

I just installed Emby yesterday and I'm seeing the same thing, plus one folder has nothing showing at all. This is after all tasks had finished running.

How do I go about doing that? 

It seems rather large.
