Just thought I'd bring this forward to see if there's any possibility for it.


My provider passes on their own images via XMLTV however they're not always providing "poster" images for the programme/movie, so when looking at something like "On Now" everything looks weird, blurry and cropped. If the XML file has the proper information available such as the programme name, is it possible for Emby to have a system that can search for the poster using the existing metadata providers?


Example of what they pass on in the XML: 



On Now: 



On the channel:



What the poster for that show actually is: 



Thank. :)

The problem with searching by name is that the potential for incorrect matches will be very high.
