You'll want to do this change to version 10132 (the broken one), in 
hopes that it will make it work without retuning.

All you need to do is to put a sleep in on line 731 of dvbchannel.cpp -- 
right before the block of code that does the tuning command (i.e. where 
the comment "// Adjust for Satelite recievers which offset the 
frequency." is)

Start with "usleep( 10000 * 1000 );" -- that will be 10 seconds, an 
eternity, but it's the same as the retune timer so it has the best 
chance of working.

If that works, start lowering the "10000" part until it stops working. 
5000 would be 5 seconds, 500 would be 500msec, etc.
