Photos are not pulled when we select IMDB as Cast list source in PLEX movie agent??

Hi I just found a bug in PMS. The problem is Cast photos are not downloaded when we select IMDB as cast list source in Plex movie agent. But when we changed it to Movie database and refresh meta data in movie description do the magic. All cast photos start to download. As I know IMDB has much more cast information as we comparing to Movie database.
Do you guys experience this issue?


Plex is the best :)

    I am also experiencing this issue. Anyone else?

    I believe I read that IMDB had some dispute with Plex for the metadata they were pulling, perhaps this is related?

    IMDB doesn't provide actor photos to Plex.
    I don't know why - it might be some contractual issue.
