Do I need to turn on tv to listen to music if I am using both HDMI & optical cables?
If I attached a HDMI cable to my TV I do understand I could see both movie and music. What I am curious is if I attached a optical cable to my sound system. Do I still need to turn on the TV which also attached to the sound system in order to listen only to music?

You should be able to listen though your sound system without the TV being switched on, if you are connected via an Optical cable direct to your sound system.

Goto System Preferences, Sounds and select the TV output rather than the PC output selected in there.
