I think the 'scan collection' button is a more recent addition to
mythweb. It works just like going into the manager from the frontend.
There are 3rd party command line tools. One of the more popular
choices is the imdb bulk update script:
http://www.thepisanis.com/node/11. It can be run as a cron job or you
can just run it when needed from the command line. It can pull data
from imdb, but I believe there are command line switches to just add
new files like the video manager would do in the front end. Note that
in .22 mythv is moving away from imdb because they have asked that
their site not be scraped in the TOS.
