A soundbar can only actualy provide 2 (or maybe 3) channels of sound since there are no REAR speakers....duhhhhh.
Just use the optical audio output of the TV to go to the soundbar, and feed all of the sources into the HDMI or Component-video inputs of the TV.
If you need a switcher, due to the number of components, install the switcher BEFORE the TV inputs.
