I would go with a HDHR and a PVR-150 or PVR-500.
As for live tv, if you use the program grid it will show you all the
channels you have available. When you choose a channel it will select
the best based on upcoming recordings, etc. If you use the "browse
mode" it will show you the channels just on the tuner your currently
on. You can also manually switch tuners if you want.
