Re: Express Plus: Can both hdmi and composite outputs be used at the same time?

I believe only one ouput is active at a time, on all Roku's with multiple outputs.
Yeah, I got some Rokus.

I'm feel confident that's true for video. Something makes me think that audio can remain active on composite.

I can confirm that the old Roku 1 used to be able to output analogue audio at the same time as HDMI. That device had its own issues, but it could do what's being asked here.
