I know you are all aware that when adding a film to your library/Database they are many case covers shown. How do I display the proper one when I do have the correct DVD for that cover.

Those are the existing videos. It's all the videos that the app knows that exist, and they're shown inside the "existing videos" box.

You have to add your owned DVD and it'll appear inside the "owned videos" box.

Each DVD has a barcode. To add your owned DVD, either you do a barcode search from the barcode search tab, either you browse the existing videos until you find the one you own, you click on it, then click the button "add as owned".

Thank you for your efforts in resolving my issue. I have done all that you have said even before I posted my situation. I click on the correct version of the video I have from the ones shown. I indicate that I own it. I go to my owned videos and the cover of the very first video is shown, not the version I own/selected even though the data is correct. Not the picture.

Even after you add an owned DVD, the picture of the movie will remain the same. It's a movie poster, not a video cover. Only inside the "owned videos" box you should see the cover of your owned DVD.

Are you saying that the DVD cover you see in the "owned videos" box isn't the one that you chose? I've just made the test and it works fine on my computer. Are you sure you're using the latest version 4.13.6 of the app? Please tell me which exact video you're adding so I can make the test.

HI there,

I have recently bought the app. Great job I love it. I have gone to enter a couple of blu-ray's and I am also having the same problem with it not displaying the correct image.

Example
Pitch Perfect 2 4K
Barcode 191329051986

On my computer, the cover seems to be the right one. Does it help if you press the F5 key to force-redownload it?

I bought the program today. Why is it that this issue has not been solved. I search for a movie and the program finds it immediately and shows a particular thumbnail. Then I go and find the thumbnail that matches my version of the dvd. I add it to my OWNED list and it is added with the wrong thumbnail (for the same movie) There have been many complaints about this but apparently it has not been fixed. Any solutions, please?. I am running version 4.14.4

I don't think there's any issue, I think you're confusing the movie poster and the DVD cover.

I've already explained it in my answers above, but let's repeat again...

Every time a movie is displayed inside a grid, what you see is the movie poster which is the same for everyone and doesn't change even if you own DVDs of that movie. Theorically the movie poster should be a theatrical poster, but in practice it's common that all we could find is a DVD cover. Nonetheless, even when it's just a DVD cover, the picture that illustrates the movie is the same for everyone and doesn't change.

On the other end, the DVD cover is displayed in only one place, which is inside the "owned videos" box.

If you get a wrong cover inside the "owned videos" box, please post a screenshot so I can check if it's a bug.
