 Added a patch, mythweb-7057-add_info_on_daily_schedule_start_date.patch ,
 which adds information about how the Start Date is used for Daily manual
 schedules.  I will not apply this until after the release, as it adds a
 new translatable string and we've already frozen strings for translators
 (and the issue is not high priority since the scheduler has been like this
 for many versions and the page has never explained the usage).

 A better solution would be a use of JavaScript that replaces the Start
 Date label and associated form element with a radio button group allowing
 the user to select "5 weekdays" or "7 days per week" iff "Record this
 program in this timeslot every day." is selected and then generates a
 Start Date for a weekday or weekend day, respectively, depending on the
 selected value.  The Start Date is important for both single record
 ("Record only this showing.") and weekslot ("Record this program in this
 timeslot every week.") manual recording rules, so it must be user-
 configurable for those rule types.  Similar changes could be made to the
 mythfrontend UI (see [10721]).

 Ideally, we'd also change the UI to use an option list for the Start Date
 for single and weekslot recordings, and perhaps even use option lists for
 setting hours, minutes, and seconds of the Start Time to prevent invalid
 data entry.
