This is as known issue. The current manual record relies on the
same mechanisms as any other record rules and expects to find
a matching entry in the listing. However, the fake entry is blown
away when mythfilldatabase updates the listing for the next day.
This breaks setting a manual record two days ahead of time and
doesn't allow daily or weekly manual record.

Don't set a manual until after the listings have been updated for
'tomorrow'. In other words, if there is a Tuesday game, set the
record rule anytime after mythfilldatabase runs Monday morning.
