My tv is a samsung dlp. Someone suggested that it might have something to do with the hdmi cable connection, but I never had a chance to try alternatives (it's too hard to deal with the way everything is cabled within a cabinet). So now it's just easier to turn the tv on and then off again. I'm glad that I'm not the only person with this problem. If you do have a chance to try different cable connections and it works, please let me know.
