HDMI always on signal

I've noticed that the MK12 is an "always on" HDMI device, like many other streamers and set top boxes. Several of my friends have the MK12 (and myself included) and are complaining about it not working well with HDMI switches.

Now, I realize some devices are "always on" but I was wondering if there was a way to disable this behavior. I know the UI settings don't allow this but I'm looking to create a solution.
Are there any configuration files that control the behavior?
Can the system's state be modified at run-time?
On what part of the system this behavior depends on? driver or android system service?

I don't mind fiddling with low-level system stuff or writing a root-only app to address these problems, though ideally i'd like to see this problem addressed by Rikomagic themselves with a FW update
of some sort.

thanks in advance for the help!
