Hi Albert

Thanks for the response. I tried changing the tune delay as you 
described, but it made no difference. The first filter timeout message 
appeared after about 5 seconds, just like before, so it looks as though 
it isn't a tuning timeout that's the problem.

Thanks for the suggestions, though.
