Up is down?

User interface question: When I'm simply watching TV, pushing up on the remote's channel changer button moves me to a higher-numbered station. Yet when I'm viewing the channel guide, pushing up brings me to a lower-numbered station. Why the discrepancy?

This happens with my Comcast service, and I've experienced it on DirecTV as well. Is it that people generally prefer a visual representation of numbers to run low to high from the top down, and yet prefer the opposite where there's no visual?
