TV Server Configuration -> General Settings -> Timeshifting -> Wait for unscrambled signal

Right now this setting has a maximum value of 30 seconds. This is too slow for some users including myself. Please make the maximum wait much higher. There should be no harm in allowing users to specify a much higher value (say 5000 or something).

The comment I got from someone in the irc channel was basically "if its not unscrambled after 30 seconds, it's not gonna be", and this is just not true. I don't see any harm in upping the limit.
