HD300 hangs upon startup if Internet is not found

I have noticed this odd issue when I am traveling in the motorhome. If for some reason I don't have an internet connection available the HD300 hangs for many minutes 5+ then finally connects to the sagetv server and works normally. It does not do this when internet is available. (my sagetv server is local)

I am camping at River Island till today and yesterday the camp wifi had cut me off, probably due to an automated job downloading a few gig of shows from my home's sagetv server. I hadn't noticed the internet was gone till I fired up the HD300 and wondered why it was just sitting at the splash screen for so long. Then I remembered when I had seen this before. (dry camping in the middle of nowhere Alaska last summer)

I cannot think of a reason that device would require an internet connection to connect to my sagetv. Does it use DNS? I try not to use the local router for DNS and specifically setup & as my DNS providers.

Thanks! Bill
