Your understanding is correct. There's a backend setting for your DVB 
devices called something like "Open DVB on demand"... I forget the exact 
details. That will make the backend close the DVB devices when they are 
not in use.

I also need to unload DVB drivers to suspend-to-RAM, and this works 
nicely for me.
