Both are input.  You can hook up two different antennas.  One might be for
NTSC the other for ATSC.  One might be for an antenna which points south,
the other for an antenna which points east.

Yes, but it is wrapped up in a "transport stream".  This allows for multiple
audio/video streams per "channel".
