It's always been this way. The design is such that naviagting down to
takes you to the next channel, and up navigates to the previous
channel. This is the same was navigating paper US TV listings that
have the channels listed in rows in ascending order down the page,
with time. This is also the way the TV guide works in MythTV and the
way the EPG looks in MythWeb.

For users in the UK (where paper listings are typically arranged in
columns with time extending down the page, and ntl users where Up
navigates to the next channel) this can take a little getting used to,
but it becomes second nature if you use LiveTV frequently.
