    Thank you for directing me to other comments of intended programming failing to operate as prescribed. I am at a loss, however, to understand why RainMachine reported this as being fixed in a recently prior release.

    At minimum, a release removing the failed process would have been rational along with a notice to users that (some) programming features do not perform as intended.

    "Known issue" is really not helpful. You referred me to blogs from which I needed to extract the answer, you must have a fixed start time if zone programming is to work. I will validate this on the next two weeks. I don't have the programming experience nor thorough manufacturer explanations of functionality to participate in the solution process.

    You didn't respond to the most recent issue I linked to:
    No watering history for 2 days, no watering (reported July 27, 2019)

    You responded to the post:
    4.0.954 - Finish by sunrise - no watering (reported August 2, 2018).

    If you look at the firmware versions, the newest is 4.0.1131.  So it was fixed after 4.0.954, but was broke in 4.0.1131 again.

    What controller and firmware version are you using? 

    Firmware is found here

    If you are using a BETA firmware, then you accepted the risks of things possibly not working.

    TL;DR: don't use start/end by, use fixed start time and it will work.
