Have you tried using the -x option?  tzap tunes and then exits.
However, I think you have to load the dvb-core module with
dvb_shutdown_timeout set to 0, otherwise the signal is lost again.

A count (as well as the human-readable option you asked for the other
day) already exists in femon - perhaps you could do a 'tzap -x',
followed by an 'femon -h -C ...'?
