I was having problems with playing recorded shows on remote frontend,
few seconds of darkness and then back to "select a recording to view".
The problem was that ReadStringList timed out and closed port before
backend replied. This patch fixes the timeout problem, but is there any
drawbacks having larger timeout value here (RequestBlock)?
