I currently have my AppleTV connected to my TV via HDMI, which takes care of audio and video when I'm watching a movie or listening to music (the TV is connected to my receiver). However, this means in order to listen to music, my TV has to be on...all the time, not just for selecting the music. Before I go pulling all my equipment apart, does anyone know if I can have both the HDMI and the optical-out connected at once, and will the signal be sent to both? When I'm just playing music through iTunes, I'd like to just listen to the signal being sent through the optical-out so I don't have to turn my TV on.
