The art directory is in the user home directory (typically ~/.mythtv/MythVideo) with a symlink to it from the mythweb directory.  Reading isn't a problem and writing the file to a directory under mythweb that isn't a symlink isn't a problem.  However, writing a file to the art directory symlink fails due to permission issues.  The symlink has been given a permission of 777 and I've tried putting FollowSymLinks in the .htacces file but still have no luck.  Any idea what I could look at that could be causing the permission problem?  If it would help to see the patch, I can provide that too, but it also includes a lot of other changes to mythweb-mythvideo.

Have you checked to see if the webserver can access all the containing
directories? I've had similar problems before and had to chmod a+x all
the containing directories. I currently run mythweb out of
~/projects/myth/mythweb, so if this isn't it, I don't know what is

basically, try this:
	chmod a+x ~ ~/.mythtv ~/.mythtv/MythVideo
