Windows 7: Any way to disable the TV Guide vertical scrolling "wraparound"?

Any way to disable the TV Guide vertical scrolling "wraparound"?

I'm running Media Center on Win 7 64-bit, and when scrolling through the TV guide listings, I would prefer scrolling to stop at the beginning & end of the listings, rather than "wrapping around" (for lack of a better term) when scrolling vertically through the guide. This is probably a long shot, but does anyone know of a relatively easy solution (registry edit, etc.) to get this disabled?

As an example, my guide is setup with channels 203 through 287, so when scrolling down vertically it will wrap around from 287 back to 203 (and vice versa when scrolling vertically up). See attached screenshot where it jumps from 287 back to 203.

As a side note, I am aware of the "turbo scroll" and page up/down shortcuts via the remote control, so that's not what I'm looking for. Basically, I'd like to be able to turbo scroll/page scroll, and have it stop & land on the lowest or highest numbered channel.

As far as I can tell, there is no setting in the options within WMC to disable this. I've searched around to find an answer to this for quite awhile, both here and on other sites. Apologies if this has been covered before. Thanks in advance to anyone who can help out!
