[mythtv] [Experimental PATCH] BIG DVB PATCH V1

Didn't exactly work for me.

I'm pointing at Galaxy 10R, with several FTA signals.  I have a switch 
with the 3rd port connected to my linear LNB.  I also have a motor, but 
I'm not playing with that at the moment (I just moved it to the 
satellite positions with my Windows machine).

I'm using a Nexus DVB-S card.

When I go and scan the transports in the channel editor, I put in Freq: 
12114000, Polairy=V, SR=4444000.  I hit "Scan for channels" and I see 
the signal level meters move around a little for about 5 seconds, then a 
message appear in the top window:

Processing Transport List
Network DiviCom Test Processing
finished processing Transport List

As I look in the screen where myth setup was run, I see the following:

2004-11-01 16:40:18 DVB#0 DiSEqC 1.0 Switch - Port 2
2004-11-01 16:40:18 DVB#0 Requesting PMap
2004-11-01 16:40:19 DVB#0 WARNING - Status: NO LOCK!
2004-11-01 16:40:19 DVB#0 WARNING - Status: CARRIER | SIGNAL | NO LOCK!
2004-11-01 16:40:23 DVB#0 ERROR - Poll timed out too many times, bailing.
2004-11-01 16:40:23 SIScan: Transport Failed to Tune
Xlib: unexpected async reply (sequence 0x32ff)!
2004-11-01 16:40:29 SIParser: ERROR: PMap Timeout in PAT Stage!

and a little bit later:

QpaintDevice: Cannot destroy paint device that is being painted
2004-11-01 16:41:55 SIParser: Stopping SIScanner
2004-11-01 16:41:55 SIParser: SIScanner Stopped
2004-11-01 16:41:55 Closing DVB channel
closing DVBStats

I hit finish when the signal levels stop jumping around and the screen 
changes and doesn't refresh and looks like locks up.  I have to ^C setup 
to get out of it.

There are no transports added that I can tell...

I've tried other frequencies on that satellite and get similar results....
