If he really means "Browse Mode" and not the guide, then NO, this is not
intended functionality.  The channel buttons should work the same in
"Browse Mode" as they do in LiveTV, where channel UP takes you to a
higher channel number.  In the Guide, then channel up goes up 1 position
on the screen which normally is a lower channel number.

I just tested "Browse Mode" here and it works correctly, Channel UP
take me to a higher channel number.  Channel DOWN takes me to a lower
channel number.

So, I don't see a bug in this, it seems to be working as intended.
