Hmm ... not really solution to the problem you try to debug, but could
be a solution for you. Have you ever tried:
a) using epgsync to get the EPG from the Sat you can not watch but has
good EPG and copy it to your local station
b) limit the search timer with a channels group to only the stations
you can receive. 

Like that you should be able to use searchtimer you not need to adjust
and no timers on channels you can receive.
