Maddening starting problem Renault Megane 2002 (1.6)

My problem sounds similar - not sure if it's the same, though.

The problem comes and goes - when it comes, it stays for a few months (am in the middle of a bad patch...)

In the morning, the engine does not fire. I turn the key, nothing happens. I then keep turning the key - after perhaps 80, 100, 150... turns the engine will fire - and then the car will start fine the rest of the day - even if it's been sitting in a car park all day. Then exactly the same the next morning.

I tried taking the TDC sensor out and cleaning it - no effect at all. Would be glad to hear if anyone has had this problem - an solved it somehow....
