When you use the -MI option it tells jamu to ONLY process videos
that do not have either a TVDB or TMDB number and to ignore any other
videos. The message is telling you that there are no videos with missing
TVDB/TMDB numbers so Jamu -MI has nothing to process.
If you have never run a Jamu interactive session (-MI) where videos
were processed, then this may mean that the your video directory
configuration settings (set in MythTV) is pointing to an empty
directory. Run this command: "./jamu -Mf". This will output all the
settings jamu would use in alphabetical order. You are interested in the
""mythvideo" setting for example "mythvideo ([u'/media/video'])". Jamu
has read the "/media/video" directory from the MythTV database. Make
sure that your Video and graphics directory settings are correct.
There is a chance that the reason you see graphics is that one of
the Mythbuntu Jamu cronjobs gets graphics for your Scheduled and
A side comment: Jamu automatically looks for a conf file in
"~/.mythtv/jamu.conf" so from the command line you have used you do not
need to specify the location of your jamu.conf file.
To use a secondary source you need to specified it in your jamu.conf
file like the included example.
You said "However there are a couple of shows where it has picked
the wrong graphics...". If this occurs check to see if your TV series in
the video file name matches the name used for that show on TVDB. For
example on TVDB "Castle" is an old show while "Castle (2009)" is the
currently running show.
You use the jamu.conf section "[series_name_override]" to force a match
for TV shows and Movies. When something is not correct verify that the
source TVDB/TMDB information matches what jamu parses from your video
filenames or even what is in your EPG. Jamu can only do so much guessing.
