    The HDMI cable for video game consoles only provides audio and video it is okay to unplug the HDMI cable, however I would never recommend pulling out any electronic cables while the console is on. So yes you can disconnect the HDMI cable and continue your download.

    I would recommend instead buying an HDMI switch so you can have multiple HDMI devices attached to your display device.
