Your timeout values may indeed be too short. At one time, it defaulted to ~1.5
seconds, if I remember correctly, which is just too short for a diseqc switch
and CAM. This default is currently 60 seconds - But is only updated when
recreating the card from scratch.
The configuration setting is available in mythtv-setup, under capture cards /
Card / (signal + channel timeout).
