I currently have my 3rd gen Apple TV connected to a TV by HDMI.  I would also like to connect the Apple TV by the optical audio out to a set of amplified speakers for streaming music via AirPlay.  I've seen lots of posts about similar issues, and I'm seeing the answer I'm hoping for, but I'd just like to confirm before I invest in a cable.  Audio will still go thru the HDMI to the TV when we are watching movies but also will go out to the amp when we are streaming music?  That is, we don't have to have the amp & speakers on to hear the audio from movies once I connect the optical audio cable?
