You have to get another STB if you want to record and watch different shows at the same time. You can't just split a satellite signal like cable and there are no analog channels.
The image quality of satellite channels vary wildly. I always found that locals and non-premium content were always overcompressed. HBO and other premium channels tended to be better.

My advice would be to switch to DirecTV and get a DirecTV receiver with Tivo. It has two tuners and records the digital bitstream directly so there is no loss in quality.

Also, I don't think you know what HD quality is unless you are specifically reffering to HD channels on DISH. The digital satellite services have nice quality, sometimes, but their standard fair isn't close to HD quality.
If you really want to record HD material on DISH you should get the DISH Player DVR, your only option.
