the attached patch introduces some timeouts while the device is tuning 
and when it looses the lock:

DISEQC_REPEAT_TIMEOUT (500 ms) is used to repeat the DiSEqC signalling 
in case the where a multiswitch receives at first a malformed message 
and therefore doesn't switch.

TUNE_TO_RETUNE_TIMEOUT (3000 ms) is used to instruct the device to start 
the tuning operation once again in case the above DiSEqC signalling 
doesn't work.

LOST_LOCK_TO_RETUNE_TIMEOUT (500 ms) lets the device retune after a 
LOCKED to NOT LOCKED transition, probably under bad reception conditions.

Please give the patch a try and report success or failure.

Tests of special interest:
- bad reception conditions (DVB-T)
- steering dishes
