Description

In the frontent startup process, the mythlcdserver takes longer than 1 second to properly attach to the device and startup on my EPIA frontends. On my EPIA VIA MII and MS frontend systems, I increased the sleep time to 5 (line 135 of lcddevice.cpp) and the lcd server initiated without a problem. I have not yet tried values between 1 and 5, but was hoping that some way of detecting that the lcdserver has started could be implemented. Sorry I could not offer more, but my guess is that I am not the only user having this problem.

Thanks.

(In [7641]) Keep trying to connect to the mythlcdserver for up to 5 seconds. Should fix the problem on slow systems where it was taking longer than the 1 second we were waiting for the server to startup.

Fixes #544
