[mythtv] firewire commit 11226 and channel changing timing

While this change properly powers on my Mot 6200 (a very nice 
enhancement), channel changes after powering on are failing.  The first 
digit is not taking.  Watching the display, I see the unit power on, 
then the first digit passed, then a quick flash, then the remaining 
digits.  For instance, if it is tuning to 712, I always get 12.

Testing with live tv, this is 100% reproduceable for me.  I have not 
tested with scheduled recordings.

Is it possible to introduce a small delay between the power command and 
the channel command to give STBs a chance to fully initialize?  It does 
look like the code already has "sleep(1)".  Perhaps just bump that a bit?
