Optical and HDMI (ARC)

Has any tried connecting the SB700 with the TV using both Optical and HDMI (eARC) at the same time?

 

If one does so, will the TV automatically swtich to HDMI (ARC) for sound when needed? 

 

What sound format that SB700 can play needs HDMI that optical can't handle?

Re: Optical and HDMI (ARC)

Initially i connected HDMI ARC but after reading on google thread it seems optical does pass through so i connected using optical now. I am not the expert so i might be wrong. I have never tried connecting both at same time.

Re: Optical and HDMI (ARC)

Other than not being able to use Bose remote to control TV and other gears, what other benefits are being forfeited at present when using Optical instead of HDMI (ARC)?
