no delays between reconnect attempts to master backend

Component: MythTV - General Version: 0.22-fixes
Severity: medium Keywords: timeout, reconnect
Cc: bam Ticket locked: no


If master backend is not available and you run frontend from terminal, you can see that no delays is made between reconnect attempts to master backend:

2009-11-18 20:54:45.388 Loading menu theme from /usr/share/mythtv/themes/defaultmenu//mainmenu.xml

2009-11-18 20:54:46.795 MythContext: Connecting to backend server: (try 2 of 15)

This is due to incorrect timeout calculation. The fix:

(In [22958]) Refs #7696. Reconnect frontend to backend after disconnects.

This normally happens immediately after you try to do something in the frontend after a disconnect, but there are two problems. First, this can take a couple seconds, this gives the frontend the appearance of slugishness. Second, since we didn't know of the disconnect we didn't know to reload our entries in the Watch Recordings screen.

We may want to do some tweaking of the timeouts, but I want to address #7696 first; trac wasn't behaving so I couldn't look at the ticket tonight...
