 On slow tuners/drivers, tuning can take more than 7000 ms
 (kMythSocketShortTimeout). Currently this makes mythfrontend hang. In the
 logs it is written:
 MythSocket(887ddd8:40): readStringList: Error, timed out after 7000 ms.
 I've experienced this, for example, while switching from DVB-T to DVB-S
 with a Hauppauge HVR-4000. The quick solution is to raise the value of
 kMythSocketShortTimeout in mythtv/libs/libmythdb/mythsocket_cb.h (17000 ms
 worked for me), but it would be best to make it an option in mythtv-setup.
 This bug applies to all version I tested, up to current trunk.
 I'm attaching a very simple patch that raises the timeout to 20000 ms.
