Oops, I missed the "W" in "-MW".  On my system I see the same thing you do.
"-MW" seems to make it always return 1 but "-M" returns 0.
I do have some shows that don't have banners/fanart so perhaps that status
is percolating all the way back.  I also have some files in the MythVideo
that it can't find IMDB numbers for but those don't cause it to return 1.

+me too
