why does my blu-ray turn on whenever i turn on my tv?

no matter how i turn my tv on, my samsung bd1200 will turn on whenever the tv does. I am running through an octavia 4x1 hdmi switcher, but the other components i have through it do not behave this way. any ideas?

    Two possibilities:

    a)By coincidence the TV and the BD player share the same IR codes for power.

    b) HDMI is not just an a/v interface, but also a Control interface. It allows one device to control another one. Officially it is called CEC (Consumer electronic control) although Samsung is using a different name - I think AnyNet.

    Most probably you have Anynet enabled. If that's the case, disable it.
