In theory (and theory and practice depends
on the particular driver) the device should be
ready after it is created, so adding an
appropriate device specific WANTS and
AFTER to the BE unit override, and if there
exists an appropriate udev rule to tag the
device(s) with the systemd value, things
should work as expected.

Note that if you are using network based
tuners there exists a number of 3rd party
tools to wait for the device(s) to come
