I'd like to see this implemented in a future version of PVD:

When downloading from 2 sites at once (via one of the scripts such as IMDb+AllRovi), if the first site finds cover/poster art, generally there will be none downloaded from the 2nd site, even if it exists. But it would be nice to have a setting to enable the 2nd site to download their art, as well, and save it as a 2nd image (or 3rd, 4th, etc.). Well, either as an option, or as the default setting.

My reasoning for this is that oftentimes the 1st site will have substandard artwork, and so I'll usually delete it, run the 2nd site's update again, and hope that their art is better -- and if not, run the 1st site's update again and stick with the poor cover art (or go try to find better artwork on my own). Seems like it'd be fairly easy to do -- just a line of code to the extent of "if cover art already exists, then save new art to next available open slot".

Thanks!
