I had the exact same annoyance. You need to edit
Under <buttonlist name="recordings" from="basebuttonlist"> look for
<textarea name="starttime" from="shortdate"> . I changed that to
<textarea name="startdate" from="basetextarea">. I also tweaked the
coordinates from <area>611,1,105,31</area> to <area>540,1,180,31</area>.
Make sure to keep a copy. If you ever update to an updated version of
the theme, it will get overwritten.
There are other options other than startdate. That's just what got me
what I preferred.
