Thanks for your reply.
I configured mythvideo on the backend/frontend and that installed the
jamu.py files and examples.
Ranu mythtv -c "/usr/bin/python /usr/share/mythtv/mythvideo/scripts/jamu.py
-M >> '/var/log/mythtv/jamu.log'" manually
Everything appears to be in order.
Currently using all the Mythbuntu default directories with symlinks to other
large directories/filesystems. Believe this is what broke if before.
Even when I did this before I configured the backend storage to point to
Mythweb also indicated it knew about the directories. Makes me wonder why
Is jamu.py pulling configuration data directly from the DB or is it looking
for configuration information from somewhere else?
Could see NO info set in that file.
Here is the output of cron script -
