[mythtv-users] Gentoo / Jamu?

Jamu uses the MythTV python bindings to read and write data from the 
data base. Jamu only does one direct MySQL call and that is to read the 
recorded table when the -MW option is used.

The MythTV python bindings require a properly configured 
~/mythtv/config.xml file to access the MythTV data base.  Each account 
that you run Jamu with requires a ~/mythtv/config.xml. I run Jamu under 
root and my user account and have a copy of the config.xml file in the 
home directory of each account.

The log you included of a Jamu maintenance -M run looked like the Video 
directory(s) only included 26 video files. As specified in the Jamu wiki 
you must have run an interactive session -MI to get each video files 
TMDB and TVDB reference numbers. If you do not have reference numbers 
then a maintenance run -M will skip videos without reference numbers. 
Both Mythvideo and Jamu require reference numbers to get meta data text 
and images. Both will also try to match the file name with a movie or tv 
series before interacting with the users.
