Can you run this query and see what gets returned
SELECT data FROM settings WHERE value = "VideoArtworkDir" AND hostname
= "hostname as returned by the hostname shell command";

Does it return the directory you are thinking it should?

And second, can your server talk out port 80? if you run imdb.pl -P
[imdb number here], can you wget the url it gives back? Does your php
have allow_url_fopen = on? (I need to add in a check for that...).
