That's correct, see MC/programs/mythfrontend/setrectime.cpp.  And I 
would definitely be interested in improving the UI, see my patch 
submission for a list of areas that need work.  I have some ideas for 
how to move forward functionality-wise as well (the code could easily 
calculate the exact amount of time to cut off a program to avoid 
conflict).  If interested in working on any of this, drop me an email.

Right now I'm running with the CVS head and it's not working well for me 
(can't watch live TV or recorded programs using myth). so I'm trying to 
figure out what's gone wrong. Once it's functioning again I can get back 
to working on this code.
