Can I suggest you post a log from 'mythfrontend --loglevel=debug' and
perhaps annotate it as necessary (tv is currently off!) etc.

If you're not doing so already, try ssh'ing into the box and following
the log as you test.

Does the remote control pass through work?

... and, have you checked whether CEC is configurable in the TV
settings? Mine had to be switched on for both the TV and PS3.
