Hey
Quick question and I hope I am not off topic

If the TVDB has multiple season posters for a series how does my kodi system choose which one to show? Is it random?

thanks

Usually it takes the default one (most english) or the frist Poster with the higher Ratings. I don´t exactly know how to sort out in Kodi because i´m useing a nfo Tool since Years and it shows me all available Posters Fanarts etc so i can choose what i wan´t.

It´s an Management tool. Search for Ember Media Manager.

KODI might have a method in editing the series metadata information manually to select which poster you want to use.
If not you will probably indeed have to use a separate application to download the art to the appropriate places and have KODI fetch the locally stored artwork as the default.
