How to Connect Devices?

I just got a new Sharp LC70UQ17U TV and a Sony HTST7 Soundbar and am confused on the best way to connect everything. I have 4 HDMI devices; Apple TV, Bluray player, PS3, and satellite box. Both the TV and soundbar have a total of 4 HDMI connections which leave 3 available once I connect the TV to the soundbar via ARC. What is the best way to connect the rest of the devices? Can I connect 3 to the TV and 1 to the soundbar? Is there any benefit to connecting them to the TV over the soundbar?

Connect the soundbar and tv with an optical cable.

ditto what cm3371 sez. easier to operate with only having the one remote to deal with. all input selection and volume control from the TV's remote.
