It should send the signal to both at the same time (i.e. through the HDMI and the optical).  Not sure if that is what you need or a p.i.t.a.

Make sure you don't fall foul of auto-switching (if any) on your a/v amp as it may detect a signal from two sources at the same time.  My problem is the opposite - I run HDMI into an a/v amp, and optical into a hifi amp - meaning I need to completely switch off one when using the other.  First world problems I guess.

Never thought of that i do leave the dac magic on 24/7 as it seems to cool that way. But im hoping that by selecting the input on my avr amp that it will know what i trying use.
