When you set it up initially, you may have done what I did and select
"skip the recordings screen and place videoes directly in mythvideo"
(or something close to that)..  This puts a line in the .conf file
like: [mythvideo only] - just delete that entry and move the titles to
another menu entry and then run the check.  For soem reason the
mythvideo only check does not like the {banner|coverart|, etc...}
folders to not be *under* the video folder...

I had to pause all of the downloads yesterday since people are over
for the holiday, but I'll play with it some more tomorrow as well..
