Of course the real solution would be to make mythtv not hang when an mpeg
stream changes on the firewire link midstream. Then it wouldn't matter
how long the channel change takes. That might be a problem for the
decoder to handle though.
I would much rather find a way to fix the internal channel changer given
it does everything else right. I really don't need to start using an
external script. That's just too hacky.
