    For MythTV Jamu has three main functions selected by the options you use. (1) Get Graphics  for your Scheduled and Recorded programs (-MW); (2) Update your MythVideo metadata (-M) and (-MI); (3) Clean up graphic files that ware no longer being used (-MJ). With options one and two Jamu will always try to download each type of graphics so specifying a type is not required.

    I can see from what you have in your email that you are mixing these options and adding some that have no effect. In the case of Scheduled and Recorded programs (-MW) there is no interactive mode as it uses the EPG information to figure out what to download from TVDB or TMDB, If you wanted to Update your MythVideo metadata (-M) and (-MI) there would be information indicating which video file is being processed before the interactive list or matching items.

Only TVDB honors the language option at this time.

So using your email's information you should be using these command lines:
Scheduled and Recorded program graphics:
/usr/share/mythtv/mythvideo/scripts/jamu.py -l fr -MWV

Update your MythVideo metadata: 
/usr/share/mythtv/mythvideo/scripts/jamu.py -l fr -MI	# With interactive mode
/usr/share/mythtv/mythvideo/scripts/jamu.py -l fr -MV

Clean up graphic files that ware no longer being used:
/usr/share/mythtv/mythvideo/scripts/jamu.py -l fr -MJ

For the issues described for "Grey's Anatomy" and "Grey's Anatomy HD", this is purely a case that Jamu does not parse the file name with the extra " HD", so that it cannot find a matching TV series in TVDB. You can deal with this by using a jamu.conf file (see the jamu-example.conf file for details) and adding a "Grey's Anatomy HD" entry in the "[series_name_override]" section.

Good Luck.
