My mythbuntu clean install has jamu jobs setup correctly.

Edit /home/mythtv/.mythtv/jamu.conf according to the instructions on the mythtv wiki. If you don't have one I can let you have mine.

My cron jobs are:

#Hourly massive update to ensure users see graphics coming in for upcoming recordings and current recordings
DIRECTORY=$(grep ^mythtv /etc/passwd | awk -F : '{print $6}')
if [ -f "$DIRECTORY/.mythtv/config.xml" ]; then
    su mythtv -c "/usr/bin/python /usr/share/mythtv/mythvideo/scripts/jamu.py -MW >> '/var/log/mythtv/jamu.log'"

#Daily maintenance mode for Jamu
DIRECTORY=$(grep ^mythtv /etc/passwd | awk -F : '{print $6}')
if [ -f "$DIRECTORY/.mythtv/config.xml" ]; then
    su mythtv -c "/usr/bin/python /usr/share/mythtv/mythvideo/scripts/jamu.py -M >> '/var/log/mythtv/jamu.log'"

#Janitor mode to clean up stale stuff
DIRECTORY=$(grep ^mythtv /etc/passwd | awk -F : '{print $6}')
if [ -f "$DIRECTORY/.mythtv/config.xml" ]; then
    su mythtv -c "/usr/bin/python /usr/share/mythtv/mythvideo/scripts/jamu.py -MJ >> '/var/log/mythtv/jamu.log'"
