[mythtv] MythTV GUI rebuild of current screen

l am struggling a bit with the mythtv-setup GUI. There are pages, e.g.
the "Card Type" where the type of the card selected does change the
number of fields. When you select a DVB-S/S2 device there is an
additional field about DiSEqC switches that is not present with other
card types.
The way it works now is that you have to select the DVB-S/S2 device,
then save-and-exit, then select the page again and then the additional
field is there.

This is definitely not user-friendly and intuitive and I want to
change this, if only to avoid documenting how this works.

What I would like to do is to add the DISEqC field while the page is
being displayed but I cannot figure out how to do that. Setting the
field visible or not visible does not work. Enable/Disable does work
and this is an alternative, especially now that the disabled fields
are now painted grey.

Comments and hints&tips are appreciated!
