This is fixed for the analog cards in SVN. For the DVB card you
need to up the channel timeout to something more reasonable.

Please send me a note with the hardware + a reasonable default for it.

When you first configure a DVB card it should be picking a reasonable
number depending on the hardware. But in the DB update that added the
columns there is no way to determine the exact DVB subtype you have
so it defaults to something like 3 seconds. This is too low for things
like DVB-S, or special hardware like external DVB over USB devices.
