Mythbuntu 9.10 has a few Jamu cron jobs set up at installation.
Specifically for MythVideo there is a maintenance cron job that runs
once a week. Both MythVideo and Jamu require a video to have a TVDB/IMDB
number. The only way you are going to get value from the maintenance
cron job is if you update your MythVideo collection's TVDB/IMDB numbers.
You can get the required TVDB/IMDB numbers either through MythVideo
"w" key which triggers getting metadata including graphics on a per
video file bases or running from a terminal a Jamu interactive session
(e.g. ./jamu -MIV). See: http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Jamu#Mass_Updates
The Jamu interactive session parses your video file names and either
guesses what the video is or it will prompt you with a list of possible
matches from which you select the correct movie or TV Series. This is a
mass update of all your videos and is generally only done once. After
that when you add a new video file you do a MythVideo scan and then use
the "w" metadata download for the new video.
The other Mythbuntu Jamu cron jobs are a weekly clean up of orphaned
graphics and every hour a download of graphics for your Scheduled and
Recorded programs. Only missing graphics will be downloaded. These
graphics will show in the Watch Recordings screen with some of the new
I hope this helps
