Sorry it took a while to try.

And also sorry to say that for me it didn't seem to make any difference.

I can get my Technotrend premium dvb-c 2300 to tune quite well with 
increased timeouts. Almost as fast from one mux to another as from one 
channel to another within a mux. This with vdr in Jyvaskyla, Finland 
with all-qam_128 cable.
