I suppose not a lot of people use manual recording, but recently I've been using it quite a bit and discovered a few minor improvements could make it a lot easier to use.

1) Have a preference for a default manual recording channel rather than starting at the beginning of the list.
2) Allow a duration as an alternative to a stop time.
3) When a start time is entered, "snap" the end time to the start time, or maybe start time + some preference, so it's closer to the desired end time and you don't have to wind it around the clock.
