this is pretty horrible, but from the scan output (channels.conf) and an
mplayer that supports dvb, I just ran:
cat channels.conf | perl -e '$opts=" -vo asdfasdf -ao asdfasdf| tee -a
streaminfo"; while ($f = <STDIN>) { if ($f =~ m/radio/i || $f =~ m/jazz/i)
{next;} $f =~ m/(.+?):/; print "mplayer \"dvb://1\@$1\" $opts; "; }'

Paste the output into another shell and run it, which should fire up mplayer
to interrogate the stream and fail (invalid vo driver), it should take a
while and you might need to nudge it along with ctrl-c. Then you can

cat streaminfo | grep -e Playing -e ^VIDEO: -e ^AUDIO
to get video/audio details for each channel. Just note I've been told
mplayer's bitrate report is not quite right.
