Hybrid card : MythSocket timeout on set_channel

I use hybrid digital/analog card ASUSTeK P7131 Hybrid. I cannot switch from digital to analog channel properly, there's MythSocket? timeout, "SendReceiveStringList?(): No response." on frontend, NVP is started sooner than it should and crashes with "Unknown error, exiting decoder.". Subsequent attempts to run LiveTV usually succeed on a second or more likely third try, since the card is usually fully switched and tuned at that time. The card is correctly configured as a hybrid type as per #2617 instructions.

The problem is that mythtv is set to use "quick" 7 second timeout on all MythSocket? connections, while SET_CHANNEL operation on my card may take a bit longer when switching from digital to analog. I patched SET_CHANNEL to use "slow" timeout and I was able to switch between channels without any problem.

I suppose this issue might be similar to #3079 or #1133.

I am including my take on a patch against svn 13114.
