HDHomerun Slow to Tune

I'm having slow tuning issues only on my HDHomerun tuner.

When SageTV tunes to a Digital QAM channel (assigned to the HDHomerun) I often see on the screen "No Signal" for a while. If I sit back and wait, sometimes up to 20 seconds, the HDHomerun eventually displays the broadcast. The longest delays are found on the music station broadcasts (up to 20 sec), in comparison to a typical TV program delay (2-5 seconds). I've lived with the delay issue since I began using sage over a year ago but figured someone may know a trick or two to resolve this issue.

Why am I experiencing what I believe to be a long delay for tuning in a QAM broadcast on the HDHomerun?

For standard definition I use a Hauppauge PVR500 tuner which tunes in the broadcast virtually instantaneously.

Am I expecting too much from the HDhomerun?

If this is just a characteristic of the HDHomerun what tuner would you recommend I use that would tune in QAM broadcasts faster?
