Don't know about dvb-s but for my dvb-t card I set the following
timeouts to enable me to record the BBC HD stuff (with the default
values I got zero byte recordings).  I set the timeouts high and
intended to gradually reduce them to find out what the actual limit
was - never got round to doing that yet though!

(In mythtv-setup)

Signal Timeout to 2000ms
Tuning Timeout to 4000ms
DVB Tuning Delay to 1000ms
