    I'm thinking about getting an Apple TV 3 and was wondering, if I was to buy a DAC (such as ), and not have my TV switched on, will airplay still work though the optical port? I remember reading a while ago that sometimes the Apple TV won't work if the TV is off. Is this still the case or will my solution work?

    Hope that makes sense and thanks in advance!
