Title: (JAMU - Just.Another.Metadata.Utility); Version: (v0.7.3); Author:

This python script is intended to perform a variety of utility functions on
mythvideo metadata
and the associated video files.

The primary movie source for graphics and data is themoviedb.com wiki.
The primary TV Series source for graphics and data is thetvdb.com wiki.
Users of this script are encouraged to populate both themoviedb.com and
thetvdb.com with posters,
fan art and banners and meta data. The richer the source the more valuable
the script.

i always run it as command line, and it fails everytime when i do that

The theme "mythbuntu" came with my install -- so No, I didn't install it

settings from /root/.mythtv/config.xml

Listed below are the types and base directories Jamu will use for
The list reflects your current configuration for the 'mythtv' back end
and whether a directory is a 'SG' (storage group) or not.
Note: All directories are from settings in the MythDB specific to hostname
Note: Screenshot directories are not listed as Jamu does not process
Type: Fan art     - SG-YES - Directory: (/usr/local/media/m1/fanart)
Type: Video       - SG-YES - Directory: (/usr/local/media/m2/videos)
Type: Cover art   - SG-YES - Directory: (/usr/local/media/m1/video_covers)
Type: Banners     - SG-YES - Directory: (/usr/local/media/m3/banners)
If a directory you set from a separate Front end is not displayed it means
that the directory is not accessible from this backend OR
you must add the missing directories using the Front end on this Back end.
Front end settings are host machine specific.

I am using the 0-23-Fixes (not the trunk version) and I just updated it a
week back...
