    I would like streaming music through SPDIF to my Harman audio amplifier,
    but Optical audio out not work without a connected HDMI, if I turn off the TV, the sound is cut off. Anyone knows the solution?

    Thank you for your answer

    Yes, CEC I have disabled (The TV not have CEC- old model)
    If I just unplug the HDMI plug, zido cut adio from SPDIF output,
    if I plug in HDMI (TV must be ON), the sound immediately comes back.
    I tried all the settings (I am IT specialist) and did not work.
    Can only my Zido have it? Can someone check your plaer?
