Mike is spot on, as usual.

TAv is nice is situation where you're shooting in low light with constant changes in light, like for concerts, theater plays, events.. You set your lens to wide open (or close), you set the shutter speed that allows you to freeze the action, and let the camera pick optimal ISO. The danger is overexposure, as you have discovered, because you come slamming into ISO 100 when the lights come on.

Av and Tv modes are a little safer (regarding not blowing any shots) but a little more conservative regarding "optimal" settings.

In short, when i use TAv, i keep alert for strong lights and i'm ready to immediately switch to Av or Tav, or just program - the camera usually makes very wise choices by itself.
