As noted this problems occurs because the cron job runs as root and the root user doesn't have a properly configured /too/.mythtv/config.xml file. An alternative fix to the problem is to add the following to the /etc/default/mythtv-status file:

MYTHCONFDIR=/home/mythtv/.mythtv
export MYTHCONFDIR

Replace the /home/mythtv/.mythtv path with whatever path works on your system.
