No. It will fetch the data and then the poster. We should change this to be 
able to do what you say: search different sources and then decide which of it 
gives the best result. This is specially a problem when the video is in 
languages other than English like French, German, Spanish...

If no one else want, I can do the script for tv.com (in python, as I'm 
learning it :) )
