    The backslash is in the temp path now and the new album thumbnail resolution setting seems to be working. Thank you! (y)

    Sorry to bother you once more but I'd like to understand what goes wrong. One example where the wrong album thumbnail is downloaded.

    Track tags:
    Artist: Frank Sinatra
    Album Artist: Frank Sinatra
    Album: My Way: The Best Of Frank Sinatra

    Actually MusicBrainz would return the correct result:
    http://musicbrainz.org/ws/2/release-group/?query=artist:"Frank Sinatra" AND release:"My Way: The Best Of Frank Sinatra"
    MBID: 34d2108b-d622-3fb3-8209-858429524f71

    But FH downloads the thumbnail of the album "Frank Sinatra Sings For Only The Lonely", MBID bf7c7461-fc4d-35f8-a4d6-673473ce3fe6.

    Do you know why?

    Does it mean that on Fanart.TV album thumbs are always searched by the artist MBID only, not by the album MBID?

    Artist Fanart, ClearArt, Thumbs, etc search by Artist MBID
    Album Thumbs, DiscArt, etc search by Album MBID

    OK, this makes sense. Then the question is why the MBID of the artist (197450cd-0124-4164-b723-3c22dd16494d) was used for the album thumb search.

    For this album, such an id is recorded in the database, and on it the site returned the pictures, it is possible that this is the correct id for the album, but only another album. Why such an id is recorded in the database, I do not know, this information is not in the log.

    The test results are really impressive! The processing of an artist with 61 Fanarts has been reduced from 3 min. 17 sec to 24 sec., of another artist with 77 Fanarts from 2 min. 14 sec. to 3 sec.
