Try the scan tool from linuxtv-dvb-apps then it should tell you. It 
tries to tune to each one in turn and then emits a list of all the 
channels that you can tune to.


IIRC there may be a bug in the last released linuxtv-dvb-apps package 
which might cause scan to go get stuck retuning to the alternate 
transmitters indefinately. I believe this is fixed in CVS, but i've 
never had this problem myself.
