Roku Streambar with Non-Roku TV

Is it possible to use the Roku Streambar for music apps while having the television turned off? The television is a Sony Bravia that does have the ARC functionality. Or do I need to connect the optical connection between the television and the streambar?

Thanks for the post.

Please be aware that you will only have the capability to listen to music with the TV off if you have a Roku TV.

For more information, visit our Support page here: Listen to music with the screen off


Thanks,

Re: Roku Streambar with Non-Roku TV

Thank you for your response however it did come a little bit too late. That's okay. BUT I just want you to know in my set up with a Sony TV, I have been able to turn the tv off and still listen to music through the streambar. I have the streambar connected using both HDMI and optical. I do have to use my cable box remote or the tv remote to turn off the tv screen. And I may not be getting all the functionality I should but I am achieving my main objective. Also I am able to listen to CD's  (I know, what is a CD?) through my DVD player into the tv and to the streambar.
