Unhappy Apple TV - HDMI Switching Issue

Hi

I've bought a brand new TV which looks great works as I'd expect with one small problem.

As my current LCD telly doesn't have enough HDMI ports, I've had to purchase a HDMI switch. The switch is automatic and works perfectly with my Sky+ HD and Playstation 3, the problem is that the TV doesn't cause the switch to work. If I turn everything onto standby I'd expect the TV to take over the connection, however it simply doesn't.

Can anyone help?

Thanks

I've heard something about the HDMI port being passive on the Apple TV, so it doesn't/can't signal to whatever it's connected to that it's been switched on... Do you have two ports? Then problem solved! If not, I guess you have to get a "manual" switch...

Can you set the switch to default to the TV when everything else is off? Otherwise you will have to do it manually
