Advertisements 1 of the things I like about the tivo HD is with digital cable and the appropriate cards, I can access assorted music or other audio programs. But Ive got an issue. My tivoHD is connected to my tv via HDMI. While connected via HDMI, is it possible to output audio via optical or red/white audio plugs at the same time? Since the video on these programs either doesnt exist or isnt something I care to watch, Id rather be able to play with the xbox or ps3 as the audio program goes on in the background.
