 It's used for upnp media streaming of mythvideo content.  If it doesn't
check for new videos placed in your video directory tree then it would 
never see anything newly added until the next time you restart the backend.

If you increase the timer or disable it, it will wont cause you any problems
unless you are using a upnp client to stream the videos such as 
ps3/xbox360 etc :)

 I hadn't considered people who put their drives to sleep when I added 
the timer but I might be swayed to make the timer value configurable.
