Updating all Artist/Album art at once


Recommended Posts

It would be great to have a button that updates all the artist/album art all at once.

Because when setting up a new device it takes quite a while to get art for everything, and some albums take several days for that.

PA only tries to download artwork when it is asked to display something (for example by opening a particular list) for which there is no existing image. To try to download everything in one go could become a hugely wasteful process in terms of slowing down device performance and network usage.

You do know you can bring existing cached images over from your previous setup don't you? PA Settings=>Export/Import Settings/Data.

Hey Andre, thank you for the response.

Now I know, but if I'm on Wifi and have a charger nearby, it would be simpler and quicker for me to just download all in one go over 10-20 minutes. 

So that if I don't have access to a good connection, I can have art for albums that I haven't opened up.
