I use mythtv for all of that stuff, both recording and watching TV.

If you are watching 1080i or 720p it does require a reasonable CPU and video 
card to do it.   And mythtv can be run in a window, but the default config is 
full screen.

Somethings I watch live, but generally I record it and may watch it almost live 
(a few minutes behind the current recording) or days later.
