That is the job of the signal monitor.. Right now this is set at
3 seconds for recordings, and infinite for LiveTV.
(See DVBSignalMonitor constructor).

Probably too short for recordings... For V4L pcHDTV support I made
this a DB setting, I'll probably do that for DVB too.

This is a feature not a bug :) I want some limited protection
for someone who tries to set this to say 5 seconds... Hence
