    Ok, I tried googling and come up with nothing. Can someone please explain to me how audible fan art is derived? I get these random pictures on my MS depicting different chapters (although sometimes there is repeated pictures). The center screen or hud will often display fan art such as THIS or maybe a random picture of some dude that looks like Guy Fieri. Usually, at least for the first 10 chapters, it is a picture of something that represents the chapter, but has absolutely NO CORRELATION with the book itself. Is there a way to change this or link the fan art to specifically match the book I am listening too? Thanks!

    I get the same random album art when i listen to NPR on my phone as well. Very odd and unrelated album covers show up.

    this is a long-standing problem with Telsa's media player, existed before v8.0 and is still a problem. There's a few threads discussing album art here on TMC...

    all streaming podcasts (not just audible or NPR) get seemingly random album art. different episodes of the same podcast often get different art. Happens also sometimes with some songs played over Bluetooth from your phone, too. V8.0 firmware update fixed most of the album art problems with songs stored on USB, seems to now use the embedded art on the USB songs. but the problem remains with streaming podcasts and Bluetooth

    Gotcha! Thanks. I swear I tried to search, but came up with nothing. Didn't think to test a USB to compare.

    you're welcome. this was one recent thread, (Humorous Album Art) but there's more discussion in other threads as well, including some of the recent threads about USB media and v8.0

    One thing I have noticed is that quite often the album art that is shown is usually chosen as it has the current chapter number somewhere in the album showing.
