    My AV setup requires me to send video via HDMI to my HDTV and audio via either coax or optical to my soundbar (older Yamaha ysp-1100 sound bar without hdmi).

    I have a retina MacBook Pro. If I hook an HDMI cable into my macbook pro and hook it up to my tv can I still use a mini-plug to optical cable to output the audio?

    Thanks.

    Yes you can, press ALT while clicking the sound volume and you'll be able to select the desired output.
