Well, it depends of the operator. Is some operator using hour basis week
change..? Programs are sent weekly by date, and the time can usually
change few hours (example aired in advance becouse of president
elections extra programs). Week is 7 days, and if there's no show from
the last week (6 days) let's record one coming today.

Or do we need an extra option "record weekly by daily basis" and "record
weekly by hourly basis". If operator is sending last weeks episode just
before this weeks timeslot, my "daily basis" won't work. But I would say
this is very rear situation, atleast in here Finland.

Sorry bout my english... =)
