An unexpected channel number can be caused by a timeout on a transport
scan. If you get that it has usually missed the NIT; in that case the
logical channel numbers are not known and then the service id's are
used as channel numbers instead. This are usually high numbers.

With the option (in master) of "Logical Channel Numbers required" only
channels with a logical channel number are selected.
