Especially images with completely unrelated names!
But a global switch to just ignore all local image files would be great.

Just curious, have you tried the methods listed in the users guide here Metadata 101 – Firecore under “Excluding folders and extras”?

Yes, but in this case, the image will be used as a cover image unless you delete it.
The issue is mentioned in this thread, where James confirms that it’s a known limitation: Option to ignore local artwork

It would be great to have a setting for this as you wouldn’t have to go into your NAS/cloud folder/whatever to remove files all the time. :slight_smile:

I signed up for a support account to make this feature request. It’s a really awful feature that if there’s an image in the same folder, that image MUST become the artwork. We need a way to globally disable this, I want the meta image to be the default, even if there’s an image in the same folder. PLEASE. At the minimum a person should be able to manually choose the meta artwork over the folder image. (Using Infuse 6 on Apple TV)
