Just for your information in case anybody else asks in the future.
I did not find a clean solution, but I do have a workaround.
I have put this line in the event handlers in mythtv-setup (when the
frontend or backend disconnects)
echo on 0 | cec-client -s
So now, the TV switches off but back on immediately after.
Have a great day!
