Hmm, zeroing both 'lastScan' and 'lastActivity' on cEITScanner
constructor dropped the Conax detection time to 9-10 seconds. Apparently
tuning into the encrypted frequency does speed up the detection

I tried also to tune the card into the channel (before VDR main loop)
using GetDevice() / SwitchChannel() but that didn't help...

I don't know if there are issues if EPG scan is triggered right from the
VDR start. If not, could this change be included into the next VDR
