startchan in cardinput table not long enough

startchan column in cardinput table is only varchar(5), while channum column in channel table is varchar(10), after switching to a channel with channum wider then 5 characters, it's impossible to get back into live tv.

also, entering a channum directly by remote control in livetv which is wider then 6 characters does not work. it only accepts channel numbers that are less then 6 characters

(In [10720]) Fixes #2126. Expands startchan and tunechan in cardinput to match channum varchar(10) in channel table.

The startchan change avoids getting stuck on digital cards which don't support signal monitoring, and the tunechan has been expanded for consistency.

I did not make the suggested change to allow direct entry of channels larger than 99999, for the same reason as when I expanded the channum varchar. This would makes channel entry annoying for the rest of us, and 100 thousand channels should be enough for anyone :)
