Sorry if I reopen this bug but I can't understand why It has been closed to wontfix... the correction suggested by Alberto Mattea works for me either, please consider to fix this bug, thanks.

Bug and fix description: On slow tuners/drivers, tuning can take more than 7000 ms (kMythSocketShortTimeout). Currently this makes mythfrontend hang. In the logs it is written: MythSocket??(887ddd8:40): readStringList: Error, timed out after 7000 ms. I've experienced this, for example, while switching from DVB-T to DVB-S with a Hauppauge HVR-4000. The quick solution is to raise the value of kMythSocketShortTimeout in mythtv/libs/libmythdb/mythsocket_cb.h (17000 ms worked for me), but it would be best to make it an option in mythtv-setup. This bug applies to all version I tested, up to current trunk. I'm attaching a very simple patch that raises the timeout to 20000 ms.
