    For TV Series MythVideo has the ability to grab different graphics 
for different seasons. When multiple graphics are available the top 
rated (rated by users of TVDB) are chosen in the order of the highest to 
lowest rated. For instance if there are multiple fanart graphics a 
different fanart graphic is assigned to different seasons. E.g. "24 
Season 1_fanart.jpg" and "24 Season 2_fanart.jpg" would be the first and 
second highest rated fanart graphics for the TV Series 24.

    Jamu does not download different graphics for any one type. What is 
downloaded is more random although the fan art and series poster are the 
top rated.

    Until the release of a new TMDB v2.1 api the selection of multiple 
fan art graphics for movies is not available. When the v2.1 api is 
available the grabber for TMDB will need to be upgraded to the new api 
and be changed to return multiple graphic links. This has been talked 
about for 0.23.
