Question Companion doesn't always show CORRECT covers

This is a bit hard to explain but here's the try:

My Calibre Companion shows the correct covers when I am just looking at any of the lists (Authors, Titles, Recent....ect.)

But when I click an item, to go to the next page to read metadata, download, send to Read....etc....the cover shown on THAT page is WRONG (way more often than not.) The covers are from other books in the system. All the other metadata is correct.

When I export the book to Books on the iPad. (for instance) the cover shown there, is correct. (iPad is 11" iPad Pro. OS is version 13.3)

If I DISCONECT, and look at the list of items that are "On Device" those covers are wrong almost allways. (Oddly not ALL are wrong, but all that are actually iBooks (epub) are.)

Now, I have LOTS of books in my library (5457), I try to put good covers on all of them. I always update the book if I change the cover, and they show properly on the internal reader.

I have run the Library Maintenance. It sometimes finds a few items like Extra Titles, or Extra Formats (because I haven't converted or something), and those get repaired, but there are no errors found.

Calibre is up to date...I update every time a new version is offered.
The issue has "survived" several updates.

Current version is 4.8 (64 bit)

So...what have I done wrong?
How do I repair it?

(I have tried to provide as much tech info as I understand here, but maybe I missed something.)

Thank you,

jp

JP, it would be great if you specified you were asking about the iOS version of CC. (I can't say that you would get any replies, but the Andy users wouldn't be adding to the traffic, and maybe making you feel bad so many people looked but wouldn't help.) jus' sayin' <shrug>

You have really confused me now...I did say:
"When I export the book to Books on the iPad. (for instance) the cover shown there, is correct. (iPad is 11" iPad Pro. OS is version 13.3)"

But you seem to be saying I left something ELSE out that would have helped. I would be happy to...but I really don't understand.

Is there some other version of CC that would run on an iPad? Is there some other OS besides iOS that will run ...and that other people use?



What did I miss ?

1. there is an android version. covers work ok in that
2. there is at least one other thread about incorrect covers: suggest you find and read it

TL DR. the IOS app has several bugs, this is one of them. there is no eta for a fix
