Solved Loss of HDMI when TV is powered off
I have this problem as well but my setup is a little different.
Mac OSx mini server with mavericks OS
Philips TV connected as the only display via HDMI

The problem i faced was when the TV was switched off over a prolonged period of time or when the TV switched itself off due to a period of inactivity.

The symptoms are exactly as described in this thread, the XBMC was not in windows mode but surely smaller (about third of its full screen size).
The audio also disappeared which forced me to restart the Mac server before all went back to normal.

Now I have "keep audio device alive" set to "always" in "system - settings" and that seems to have helped the audio issue, but the screen still shrinks.

I will attempt the pin 19 exclusion and see if that works. (although i believe that killing the auto detection is not a real solution but merely a work arround).

I have tested the setup with a multitude of hardware specs.
- Android box
- Android MK mini
- MAC notebook (I have attempted with 3 version of the apple OS X software)
- Windows 7 (Fujitsu)
- Windows 8 (Lenovo)
- Windows 8.1 (Lenovo)
- Mac mini server (mavericks)

I even tried 2 different TVs and a dell screen + 1 wall mounted projector

All displayed the same problem/symptoms.

It would be a fair conclusion on my part to think it is an XBMC issue, or in the very least an XBMC burden to fix.

I gladly take tips regarding this matter.
