 Hi All,

 I was having a problem where my channel change script was sometimes taking
 longer than 30 seconds (firewire resync issues) and so some recordings
 would get missed. This could have been avoided if I had a way to increase
 the channel change timeout to something greater than 30 seconds.

 Attached is a simple patch to move this timeout from the code to the
 database.  It still defaults to 30 seconds so users won't notice a
 difference but makes it easier to increase (or decrease) the timeout if

 I wasn't sure how to add the default value to the db so I added it to the
 end of dbcheck.cpp.

 Any feedback would be much appreciated!
