The negative channel numbers were apparently created by the minus sign between the freqid and the serviceid; when the freqid was empty the result is a negative serviceid value.

This is the code segment in channelscan_sm.cpp in today's master:

       if ((info.m_si_standard == "mpeg") ||
            (info.m_si_standard == "scte") ||
            (info.m_si_standard == "opencable"))
            if (info.m_freqid.isEmpty())
                info.m_chan_num = QString("%1-%2")
                info.m_chan_num = QString("%1-%2")

The freqid is now only used to create the chan_num when freqid is not empty. This is equivalent to the patch in file 07_chanid.diff. Problem solved, ticket closed.
