I recall doing this, ftp or sftp an image thru where
mythtv directory stores the video images; then 
on the MythVideo utilities right arrow, then
select the image on one of the options there.  
I sortof recall putting movie 
info thru mythweb but assigning the image on mythvideo
(or maybe both can be done on mythweb?).

Sorry can't be more specific as I've got the disk crash
and trying to recover my mythtv box...
