AFAIK, and if you are willing to look at the MySQL channels table, you can
check the "mplexid" field.  I believe that any channels that have the same
multiplexid should be able to be recorded on a single tuner.  This field,
and the entire channels table is visible using mythweb, if you go to the
channel editor portion of the settings.
