'Channel 0' is usually the scan for new channels on currently unused 
transponders. The timeout means that this transponder probably doesn't 
transmit any DVB data streams at all at the moment. See Settings -> DVB 
-> Update channels -> add new transponders.

The CPU load problem may be a DVB device driver problem while trying to 
get a lock on an unused transponder.
