I am not sure what you are asking; what is the source of the files
that are in mythvideo

name the files in the format
x-files s01x02.mpg
then use the JAMU script, or individually within mythvideo with
info->metadata->download (w is the shortcut as default).

it'll see that it is in the format of snnxnn and know it is a tv
programme, then use tvdb to download the metadata including fanart.
Try a couple first; to check whether is should be named xfiles x-files
or something else entirely.

you can use tvdb to look at how they named the programme; that may help.
