VU Ultimo Satellite box - Power On etc

Hiya - I have the following equipment:

Vu Ultimo (Marusys)
Samsung TV (2012 without up control)

As the tv does not have ip control for “power on” I am trying to set up the Vu to turn on from Standby, thereby turnin the tv on via hdmi, and although the hdmi is working ok, i am struggling with the power status of the Vu.

The power ON command actually seems to just be a toggle, so if the box is already on, the activity turns it off.

The Vu is basically a dreambox type Linux tv unit, with web interface etc, so I assume there must be a solution to this via some sort of power on feedback?
