    I have noticed that when trying to tune a channel that has a weak or non existant signal, the TV server freezes for a long time until it finally gives up and returns control. This can be up to a few minutes at times, at other times a reset is required. Is there any way that the timeout can be shortened. This has become a real nuisance of late, as the local transmitter is having switchover work done, resulting in variable signal strength. I suppose on the plus side it gives time to make a cup of coffee while waiting. Any possible fix for this one?

    You can reduce the timeouts in the TV Server config.

    General -> Scan -> Tune
