would it be possible to (i.e. will you)?:

- get these various timeouts from the database
- use the current numbers as the defaults
- add some instrumentation to the code to record the various events that 
- optionally provide a UI to allow users to tweak these numbers

this way, users with faster hardware could improve switching time.

i know this sounds like a feature request without a patch, so you can 
freely igmore it.
but just in case the idea appeals to one of you i'm putting it out there.

i have a FE in my bedroom and *do* use live-tv
