I start myth manually.  On my  MythTV master/Fedora 32 box I have 
recently noticed a pause, and sometimes a hang, between the setting of 
delivery systems for DVB-T and DVB-T2.  On quitting and restarting after 
a hang everything seems to work as normal.

On seeing your post I ran 'dmesg | grep firmware' - and got screensful 
of reports of downloads for si5128.  Usually, IIRC, it's done on boot; 
now it appears to be happening in short bursts at around 200 s intervals...
