LG TV HDMI ARC and Optical Output issue

Does a HRMI ARC override an optional output? I have an LG86 in TV with it ARCing to a Samsung Soundbar. I also have an external optical output on the TV and I have that running to an amplifier. So if I want a big sound, it goes through my surround system. The problem is that if I use the ARC for the soundbar the external optical output is nullified and can't be used. When selecting Optical Out on the TV, it automatically bounces back to the ARC. Thought that would be a little odd! Is that normal? Any know fixes to this issue would be appreciate. If I disconnect the arc the optical works fine. The advantage of the ARC is that the LG magic remote also controls the sound bar. I would use the optional all the time but I can't seem to sync the LG remote to power on and volume controls don't work. Hence, with the sound bar it's all synced.

Thank you.
