HD channels on an SD TV?

I have an older TV, but I want to watch HD channels and NFLST. Will my TV display the HD channels if I get an HDPVR or do I have to have an HDTV? I know they obviously won't be in HD, but I want to see them for the content (mainly HDNet and NFLST).

It will work, but you won't get a guide from channel 200+.

Even if I set the PVR to 480i output?
I was just going to connect the PVR via coax. I want to make sure there won't be any problems with recording or viewing all the channels. I don't care about the HD picture, SD is fine.
I don't think most HD PVRs have coax-out. Do you have any other inputs on your TV, such as component (Red/White RCA cables)?
Motorola's website shows the DCX 3400 with a coax-out.
