It was the reset I was talking about. I have huge tuning problems when
moving between frequencies which differ by too much. I have a Twinhan card.
This doesn't seem to effect myy Nexus. I've gotten around the issue by
incrementally retuning until packets are seen (major hack). This works for
me most of the time. Resetting the card sounds like a much better solution.
I have noticed, however that if dvb_on_demand is on and I manually set the
startchan in the database, exit live tv and renter the card almost always
tunes. I'm guessing that whatever reset is done by that would be the fix.

The device is closed between channel changes. The problem is that some
DVB drivers don't reset properly, which is why Stuart is working on his
patch for #743.
