Harmony 650 setup: is my home theater receiver a pass thru device?

I'm expecting delivery of a 650 remote.  I downloaded the manual to read.  I'm a little confused regarding setting up a pass thru device.  My satellite receiver & DVD player are connected directly to my home theater receiver which switches the output from these devices & sends them to the TV via HDMI.  So am I correct in assuming the receiver is acting as a pass thru device?

A Pass through device will pass the signal even when powered down

Can you view TV while the AVR is powered off?

I can't view TV with the AVR off since my Directv receiver is connected to it so I now understand  the meaning of  a pass thru device.  Thanks for making that a little clearer.
