Sorry, just ignore that previous answer, as it was an answer for a different question ;o)

Are you talking about your signature download or the actual download of the patches?

There is no harm in setting your signatures to download on a nightly basis, the chances are the amount of data that comes down 6 out of 7 days will be fairly small.

If you are talking about the patch content, we tend to teach a "best practice" to set the patches to download every 30 minutes after a patch is marked as required, that way you minimise the exposure time once you have established a patch is required.

Why not just duplicate the schedule and set it to run later in the week, this is a much easier way to achieve this rather than trying to work out a custom schedule.
