As a data point/fyi

current SVN (7296) is much improved for DVB.  (many thanks Daniel)

LiveTV now behaving itself on DVB-T and analog.
Full scan works for DVB against UK-PAL
Channel change to/from/through off-air channels no longer locks up

Only issues so far:
a) changing to an off-air channel from the program guide locks up the 
front end
b) On channel change, appearance of OSD/'Signal lock' is always < 4s, 
appearance of video/audio is either ~6s or ~21s the 21s always has the 
following log entry
RingBuffer: Couldn't read data from the capture card in 15 seconds. 
DVB#0 Rec: WARNING - Got data from card after 500 ms.
there is no correlation between channel/multiplex/tuning direction and the 
tuning time.
