Iris doesn't show cover art on some pages

Oddly enough, the only page that consistently loads cover art, is the Albums page…which as far as I can see is loaded from the images extracted by Mopidy-Local.

  • I noticed that the Artists page doesn’t load any images until I look at an individual artist. It pulls that artist image from the web (e.g. discogs) and caches it.
  • When I do a search, no images are displayed for artists or albums at all. However, visiting a specific Album or Artist will show the cover art and an artist thumbnail.

I can kinda understand not pulling all the Artists, but I was hoping to be able to see the Album cover art in the search results. Any idea what could cause this, and how I can fix it?

I’m running latest Mopidy, Mopidy-local and Mopidy-Iris for the UI on a RaspberryPi 4. Here’s my config, in case that’s part of the problem:

I think you should report to Iris, not here.
