When I streamed music from iPad to Samsung Soundbar via Apple TV 3 it played fine without my tv was turned on. I used optical cable.

I have purchased Apple TV 4 and now I can only play if the TV is turned on. It's a waste of good energy. Anybody know how I can stream without TV is turned on?

Hello,

Since the Apple TV 4 doesn't have any form of audio out other than via HDMI, like the Apple TV 3's optical/analog jack, you will need to have the TV powered on to stream through the TV to the sound bar.

You could keep the Apple TV 3 connected as it is, along with the Apple TV 4, and stream through it when the TV is off.
