Unfortunately, you're making a "timeslot" rule on a specific show which is
why Myth does not record unless the show and the slot match the rule.  The
generic timeslot recording (as you describe) is handled by a Manual
Recording rule.  The "Record any" type rules account for drift.  It's fun to
tilt at windmills, but ultimately the tools to do the right thing already
exist ready to be used to address each situation.
