tuning does not wait for rotor to stop

Description

Using a rotor system, tuning to channels on a different satellite is hit-and-miss. Debugging this, it turned out that tuning already is starting while the rotor is still moving, seemingly causing all sorts of problems.

A hack to force Mythtv to wait for a hardcoded amount of time fixes the problem, but it should be fixed in a cleaner way, especially since disecq.cpp already seems to contain code to detect a moving rotor.

Perhaps it doesn't work because it relies on discecq 2.0 features not present on 1.3 equipment?
