Will a Genie client output audio via a composite cable dongle if connected to a TV via HDMI?

Will a Genie client output audio via a composite cable dongle if connected to a TV via HDMI?  I have an older A/V receiver that does not have HDMI inputs and a new TV that does have an HDMI input.  I'd like to connect the client to the TV via an HDMI cable and connect the client to the A/V receiver via a composite cable dongle for sound (using only the red and white RCA audio jacks).  If it will output both simultaneously then when I'm watching TV I can choose to turn on the A/V receiver for sound or leave it off and listen to sound just through the TV.  The other advantage would be that I could listen to Pandora through the client and the AV receiver with the TV turned off.  I don't know if the other outputs on the client are bypassed if the client is connected via HDMI.  Does anybody know?  I don't want to purchase the dongle if it will not work.  Thank you.
