I've this Samsung 7000 series LED tv connected to my Onkyo 609. 

HDMI control is on but it doesn't work too well. 

Switching off the TV / receiver is also supposed to switch off the other device... But, i get a strange situation where switching off the receiver turns the TV on, switching on the receiver turns the TV off... making it impossible to turn both off. 

After enough switching between the TV and receiver power buttons it eventually comes right , but how dumb is this!!!

I'm not really looking for a solution as both are on the latest firmware so I guess theres not much i can do.

That sounds like it is working correctly , ie if both units are on or off the on/ standby command is sent.
If only one unit is on the same command is sent , however if it is in the opposite state , then you have what you describe.
If only one of the units is on then you would have to manually turn it off, or the other one on.

Its like a macro , if you program it to say turn on 4 appliances and one of them is already on , it will turn it off
