Channel Numbers - Sony Side View

I have recently purchased a Sony Android 4k TV.  It features the 'Side View' app that allows the program guide to be reviewed on an external device such as a tablet or phone, and to subsequently change the PVR to the selected channel.  The TV itself has it's own guide that is initially setup based upon specifying Shaw Cable and postal code.


However, the channel numbering of the HD guide do not match Sony's guide.  The Sony guide channel numbers coincide with the non-HD guide numbering scheme which renders it pretty useless.


I have always been perplexed that the HD guide re-numbered the channels, and am curious about whether there's a setting that will re-number to the old regime (i.e, HD channels start at 200 and not 2)


Either that or Shaw cable needs to advise Sony of the range of channels from the HD guide so they can modify the app accordingly.  ANy other comments from users?


Thanks,  Chris
