I also switched from Pronto (TSU7500) a few months ago and am very happy with the H900.
You don't have to worry about the tv power. If you switch from one activity to another, both of which incorporate the tv, the tv will remain on. Conversely, if you go to an activity which does not need the tv, such as a cd player, the tv will be turned off. For instance, if I am watching my dvr, and switch to a dvd player, the dvd player will turn on and the dvr will turn off.
Each activity knows which devices are needed, and if one or more of the devices are being used in the previous activity, they will remain on.
