I've connected my Apple TV via HDMI to my TV. My sound goes through a home theater system. I also have cable. In order to use Apple TV I have to use the TV remote (not my universal remote) and switch to the HDMI input then I have to use the TV remote to turn off the home theater system as the sound source and switch to the TV speakers. I bought an optical audio cable and then realized the only optical plug on the home theater system is in use. So...is it possible to use a splitter for the optical and run a cable from Apple TV to the splitter which is plugged into the home theater system?  Thanks.
