> 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.

I may be completely missing something here.  But isn't the answer
simply to use a custom rule that is more forgiving than a timeslot
rule?  It looks to me like the example given right in the docs would
work for this use case.
