It does make sense. The USB-UIRT slows down channel changes because it takes several seconds to recover from changes in input. It goes like this...
1. Small delay for STB to change channel.
2. Long delay for HD-PVR to sync to new analog data, buffer new data and deliver new digitally encoded data stream.
3. Small delay for HTPC software to buffer, decode and display new video/audio.
The HD-PVR is definitely the slow link when live TV is being watched and channels, or any other analog data stream attributes, are changed.
