My understanding of multirec is this:

It works with DVB cards that record digitally (not analog capture cards,
It will allow recording of multiple programs from the same multiplex at the
same time

So how useful it is to you, assuming you have DVB cards (which it appears
you do), depends greatly on your provider and how many channels are on the
same multiplex.  If you want to see this, use a tool like phpmyadmin to
browse your channel table to see which channels have the same mplexid.
