Hmm, you could study the MythTV sourcecode on how it tunes channels on the 
PVRs, and make a little program (possibly with help from the XawTV 'scantv' 
program) that scans all frequencies. On the other hand there might be such a 
program already available, maybe people on the ivtv mailinglist know more.

You could probably also look them up on your TV set :-)

If you have found the MHz value you need to calculate the the "frequency" with 
help from some frequencies.c file found in the MythTV source. There is a 
patch for MythTV to accept MHz values, but it never got applied to CVS...
