If your tuner takes 45 seconds to lock on, it's broken. I can't
imagine any real-world use case where a tuner could take more than 30
seconds to lock on to a signal and still go on to produce a watchable

Ok, so a 30-second wait may be arbitrary and break some tiny fraction
of theoretical tuners, but it would also benefit a far, far greater
number of actual tuners.
