 When/If the frontend times out in LiveTV the adapter that was in use will
 be kept open forever by mythbackend.
 This will happen if you tune into a DVB channel that syncs, but doesn't
 contain a transmission.
 The problem here is that the current multi LNB setup method relies on the
 backend releasing the adapter for the other LNB:s to use when selected.
 At the moment on of these failures will require a reboot of the backend to
 clear out.

 EIT scan also seems to be able to trigger a similar situation, where the
 adapter is kept open forever
