I love SU Podium for it's beautiful renders and I love ProWalker for its speed and beautiful renders.
But...you can't rotate the HDRI background in Prowalker (yet).
Most of the time I have projects where the client wants to see all the sides of his building, so I make a few scene's with all the settings and views.
In Podium you can set the background in every scene different.
So.. to keep my scene's and render with Prowalker AND rotate the HDRI, I came up with this workaround:

I open the HDRI in Photoshop, make the canvas size twice as wide and copy the image.

then I crop the image like this:
hdri-knip2.jpg 
and save it as Afternoon1-180.
hdri-knip3.jpg 
Now in Prowalker I can 'rotate' the background to my likings:
hdri-0.jpg 
hdri-180.jpg 
hdri-325.jpg 

Now I don't have to mess with my scene's and still get the lighting as I want in ProWalker.

(I think it's clear that I made for every 45 angle a slightly shifted HDRI.)

well.. Mostly I'm not using urban backgrounds, but you can find links on SU Podium, like this one: http://podiumwalker.com/hdri-backgrounds.php
Perhaps there's something you're looking for.
