Howdy Nick,

That's as far as I could get as well.  I enjoy digging into issues
like this -it is a great way to learn how mythtv works.
Unfortunately I've hit a road-block and could use a bit of help.
schedules_manual.php appears to process the data
after it is entered by the user (in this case $_POST['subtitle'] is
evaluated to see if it contains 'Use date/time'), but
I can't find where the actual input from the user is performed.  Could
some knowledgeable person point out where/how
'subtitle' gets assigned the data that the user entered?  When we find
that, I suspect we'll find the source of this bug.
