I would guess that -r will just enable the dvr0 output so that you can 
record it by dumping it to a file, whereas -p will do the same plus pat 
and pmt which means that the stream will contain the necessary tables 
to select one of the channels (this pis probably needed by the app that 
will record/play the stream).
IOn brief try both and see whihc one works ;-)
