On startup and shutdown of an Activity is there a way to get more control, like sequences or the option to not power on/off a device but still have it available to use? The old programming app allowed more options, It's frustrating to lose that unless it's hidden somewhere.
The below articles provide step by step instructions on how to add additional Star/End actions and how to keep a device powered on between activity switching.Adding commands when an Activity starts or ends[Link: support.myharmony.com]

Keep this device on when switching Activities
This option will power on the device the first time it is needed, but keep it turned on when you switch from one Activity to the next. The device will be powered off when you press the Off button on your Harmony remote indicating that you want everything turned off. This is useful for game consoles that you may want to pause and leave on when switching to watch TV, and return to later on without having to stop your game.
