Long timeout prolonges scan time without guarantee for any improvement - 
i don't like that idea.
This option is more or less only useful for frontends with really bad 
reception or problematic drivers.

Other services should effect output after scan only, but not scan 
itself. Otherwise a lot of useless services will put into channels.conf.
