The Apple TV outputs over HDMI and optical at the same time, there are no settings to change this. If you aren't getting audio out of the receiver that is connected to the optical output, then you probably need to look at the receiver or more probably its settings.

Thanks for the reply... Actually you are correct! found a bad connection!
Another random question... is it possible for the ATV3 to send it's audio signal to an Airplay enabled Airport Express?

Unfortunately it's not. I know a lot of people have asked that this, I don't know whether it's possible or not. It may well be down to the fact that it already receiving an airplay connection, perhaps it's not possible to both send and receive from the same device.

We've used an airport express since 'the beginning' - for years to get our Wifi from our cable modem in our garage while simultaneoulsy using it to output audio to a VERY old tuner in the garage. I have some nice outdoor Bose speakers connected to this setup which allows any mobile device wifi equiped to output any audio through my setup.... i.e. we usally use iTunes off our laptop while we are chilling outside. Perfect marriage of new school and old school technology.

It works from a computer or mobile device, it does not work with the Apple TV.
