Group artwork display

RE: Group artwork display
Thanks for this. I think the main problem is the way group entries are formatted compared with track entries. The group entry has more information (performer and composer) as well as the artwork image. Because of the artwork image, group titles don't line up with track titles.

The search order for artwork images has been reworked a few times and I am reluctant to change it now. There is no precedent anywhere for suppressing an image that is present in the library and it would be strange to add this for groups. Also, this wouldn't solve the main issue, which is the different format that BubbleUPnP uses for a group entry. If MinimServer did not send an artwork image, BubbbleUPnP would use a generic "music note" image instead of the artwork and the inconsistent format would be the same.

Other control points (for example, Hi-Fi Cast, Linn Kazoo) use a similar format for a group entry and a track entry, either both with a small image or both with no image. BubbleUPnP is formatting the group as if it were an album (look in the list of albums to see this). This is presumably because MinimServer sends a group as an "album within an album" in terms of the UPnP protocol. It would be worth talking to the author of BubbleUPnP to explain this issue and ask if any change could be made.
