Hi I am new to Sonos, I have iPod dock and 4 play 5s connected. Using iTunes from my desk top. All working very well using iPads as the controls. Why do only some of the albums have pictures / covers, not all of them do. In iTunes they all have artwork.

iTunes uses a proprietary method for artwork, storing it in separate folders, whereas Sonos uses more standard methods (folder.jpg in the album folders or embedded). See this FAQ for more detail:

How can I get album art for my music collection?

Here's a screenshot of an image on my desktop that exhibited the problem this afternoon.

You should be able to see that it's 500x500 pixels and 99.1Kb.

It displays in the desktop controller but not on the iOS devices.
