I have a very similiar setup and recently started using jamu by hand.  I
haven't gotten around to putting it in a cron job.

Now that I'm looking for it I see the same return 1 that you have however
looking at the wiki I think the problem is that you're using options
targeted for interactive use.  The suggestion on the wiki for cron jobs is:
/usr/local/share/mythtv/mythvideo/scripts/jamu.py -l en -C
"/home/user/.jamu/jamu-maintenance.conf" -M >

Given my mythtv user has a jamu.conf in ~/.mythtv/jamu.conf and that jamu.py
is in a slightly different spot in my ubuntu system I am planning to use:
/usr/share/mythtv/mythvideo/scripts/jamu-new.py -M > ~/jamu_maintenance.log

Adding the ";echo $?" to the end returns 0 as desired.
