After checking it is working manually with the following command

/usr/bin/btlaunchmanycurses /home/pierre/torrent/ --minport 7000 --maxport 8000 --max_upload_rate 40 --max_files_open 3 --saveas_style 3 --save_options 1

Except it won't start within CRON
Here is the error : Error opening terminal: unknown.

Do i have to use screen command ?
