Hi ixobelle,

Each manufacturer has a different implementation of HDMI-CEC. Samsung's version is called Anynet+, and Sony calls it "BRAVIA Link" or "BRAVIA Sync" depending on some factors. Overall, the implementation is supposed to be the same. However, there are some variations. My understanding is what you picked up on was a design decision for Anynet+. I'm not privy to all the details that go into it, but that's my general understanding.
