[mythtv-users] can recording rules be edited?

Is it possible to edit a pre-existing rule such as, "find weekly from 10pm Wednesday /the movie show/ on any channel"?  (And if it is possible, how?)  Things would work better with "find in the six and a half day window starting on Wednesday evening".  Alternatively, I could stop using all exiting rules and create all new custom rules, but that seems like doing things the hard way.  

The problem is that some "regular" programs move by a little bit from day to day or week to week, and if the find rule knows that it recorded an episode only 6 days 23 hours and 59 minutes ago it thinks that it has this week's episode and doesn't bother with the first showing.  It will probably catch a repeat, but it does leave the poor human saying, "what?".
