Updating thumbnails only

Am I correct that thumbnails specified in my feed are cached on Roku's side, and the Roku devices load (and potentially cache) thumbnails?

For instance, I have a feed, and later on I would like to update the thumbnail for one of the videos, but everything else stays the same. Am I correct that I can't just upload a new thumbnail file with the same name to my server and expect it to be picked up? (This seems to be the behavior I am seeing.)

If this is the case, what is the best way to update just a thumbnail graphic? 

Thank you!

Re: Updating thumbnails only

hi @eclairhola  

"Am I correct that thumbnails specified in my feed are cached on Roku's side, and the Roku devices load (and potentially cache) thumbnails?" - from what i know and experienced , Roku caches the feed not the feed content. 

this is how i do it if needed .

basically create the new thumbnail with the same name that the one i want to replace , upload and overwrite the existing one on my hosting server.
