Open the firewall to the image port of mlserver.

I have turned off the firewall for local networks but that didn't do it. Funnily enough the coverart did appear once but I haven't beenable to get it to so since
Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

The most common cause of this is the MLServer setting for "MLServer DNS Name or IP Address" in MLServer / Tools / Options / Network being set incorrectly. Make sure it is valid and accurate for the network. It should never say "localhost".

To be safe and ensure that if you go mobile that you still see your images, I recommend using your external IP address (whatsmyip.com) and then forwarding the image port to your Main Lobby Server. That way you will still see the images on the local systems and also on you iPhone/iPad as well...
