I've already programmed my Pronto for basic operation. I'm just trying to streamline my interface, and it would help if I had discreet codes for everything. I guess all of my "System On" buttons could turn it on (even I may not be watching it), and my "System Off" buttons could toggle it again.
My current design has more of a "Watch Tivo", "Watch DirectTivo", "Watch HDTV", "Watch DVD" home page to get everything going. Then once the system is "up", I need to use the device menu to switch to the new device, then hit a common "Source" button on each device page which switches the receiver over to that device. It would be nice to go back to "home" and just press a new "Watch ..." button and have things that should stay on remain on.
My current 27" Mits doesn't have discreet either, but I'm hoping the Sony 51HW40 that is on the way does. I don't mind leaving the STB on all the time if I have to.
