Actually, if you update your CVS checkout, it should no longer hang.  It 
_will_ print out:

Error, couldn't find any available channels.
Your database is most likely setup incorrectly.

if it can't find any channels to tune to in the database, and continue to run.  

That's what I believe your problem to be, at least -- probably didn't assign 
the channel source to the card input you're using properly somehow, or my 
setup program messed stuff up.
