You will not be receiving those sats with one LNB on a static dish, it is more than likely that they have some transponder frequencies in common and that is why you appear to get a signal from the satellites.

What channels have you managed to scan in?

Which channels in particular, it will help to identify the satellite you are pointing at.

If you get one of these little satbeepers or swinging needle meters, you can quite easily swing the dish around to pick up the other satellites. :)
