    There are two places where display of graphics come from the "Watch 
Recordings" screen and from Mythvideo. In MythVideo the graphics are 
chosen from the videometadata associated with the video. In this case a 
name like "Face_Off_coverart.jpg" is not an issue as MythVideo uses the 
filename as found in the videometadata table. The graphic file could be 
named "Xyz_coverart.jpg" and it would still be found and displayed for 
the movie "Face/Off.
    For Watch Recordings screen things are more complex. When Jamu is 
trying to download a graphics for a Scheduled or Recorded program and 
the name of the program would generate an illegal Linux file name 
(POSIX) then the only choice is to create the file name using the 
program "seriesid" e,g, EP987654.jpg
In the end a program name that would generate a non POSIX compliant file 
name simple cannot be created. This is the best that Jamu can do.
