change default value for record.findtime

Description

Since the broadcast "day" runs from around 5am to 5am (at least in north america), it makes more sense to have the default findtime set to 5 or 6 am than midnight. This would probably solve 90% of the issue around not being able to specify the findtime when creating/altering find daily schedules.

I have no problem with the change. I don't think it will have the full desired effect, though. IIRC, only search rules will get the new default findtime. Recording rules created by first choosing a program (in the EPG, for example) will get their findtime from that particular showing.

What about selecting through mythweb? I wish I made a note, but I think I had a lot that had midnight as a value. Maybe they were leftovers from earlier myth versions. (I've set most of mine to 6am since...)

I don't know anything about what mythweb currently supports. Instead of a partial band-aid, why not submit a patch for a complete fix. That would be to allow mythfrontend and mythweb to edit the findday and findtime in the scheduled recording dialog?
