I've actually don the reverse, gone from Dish SD to FiOS HD, but I can
help in some ways, as my switch is at least similar.

I now have two FiOS HD tuners, and 2 HD-PVRs. Things work great!!! I
setup UDEV rules to ensure that the HDPVRs don't 'switch' locations
depending on when UDEV decides to detect them.

With recent kernels, I believe so, but Jarod would be able to answer that

I'm not sure about this either, but again, I'm sure Jarod would know...

That wouldn't be necessary actually, as Dish receivers can be set to 16
different IR remote control code sets. I was actually using 3 receivers
with one IR blaster in my SD setup.
I'm short on time right now, but would be happy to share how to setup the
udev rules for the HD-PVRs and the lirc configuration for Dish receivers.
