Just received my first HS110 and want to use it to check on power usage of various appliances. It is all set up and working but can I turn the TV on and off at the socket switch so that if someone else wants to watch TV all they need to do is switch it on?

If you unplug the TV and plug it directly into the outlet in you'll see how it will behave when controlled with the HS110. Most modern TVs will not turn on in that case. But then again most modern TVs use a tiny amount of electricity in standby mode and the HS110 is going to add a few watts itself. The break even period of adding an HS110 is probably best measured in decades.
