Connecting a soundbar to receiver (acting as a switcher)

So I got a Yamaha YAS-101 soundbar from a friend after recently blowing my cheap surround sound speakers. I have a Yamaha HTR-6260 receiver , i want to use it as a switcher for my sound bar since I have everything plugged into it, xbox, ps3, record player, tv.

Any advice as to how I can do this? See pics attached of the back. I just have an optical cord right now but I quickly learned there is no optical out on my receiver.

I have a similar receiver and I believe you can set it up to pass through the audio over HDMI to the TV. If you can than your TV should have a optical out to send to the sound bar. This is probably the best option unless you TV has enough HDMI input to use it as a switcher instead.
