Add a timeout to mythpreviewgen calls
When generating a preview, only wait for 5s, then bail. I've seen far too many
previewgens that run for hours spinning at no avail. If you can't get one
image out of the video in 5s, you're likely never to get one at all, just fail
fast, and try again later as the preview doesn't exist.
Also removed the > /dev/null, and changed it to --quiet to suppress console
logging. Also logging return value on failure.
Later, this should have logpath propagation added.
