Autoblog schedule -- always red except daily

I've seen a number of threads on problems with getting scheduling to work and nothing in them has helped but hopefully this specific symptom looks familiar.

Newest WP, newest Autoblog ..

If I schedule anything other than daily, the next scheduled process shows up red. Doesn't that indicate that the system thinks the time is in the past?

WP general settings are to my local timezone, PHP indicates it has same time. How do I fix this so that I can schedule something?

thanks,

Jim
