Description

I'd like to implement per tuner timeouts, much like the timeout value you can currently set for the pcHDTV cards when using the V4L drivers.

(In [7266]) Fixes #321; timeout not long enough for DVB over USB. Fixes #319; per tuner timeouts.

This changes the signal lock and channel lock timeouts from constants in the code to setable values in the backend configuration and sets reasonable defaults when you configure a new card.

Those with existing cards may wish to fiddle with these values, as the values are initialized to 1000 ms and 3000 ms respectively. These values may not be appropriate for your setup. i.e. if you use DVB-S, DVB over USB, or have a low signal station and want to wait a bit longer for a lock.

This also drops some old dvb_* tables, it is not really safe to regress from SVN to 0.16 now anyway, and 0.17+ does not use these tables.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
