Talking How to Hook up Tv, Receiver, Sound bar , Playstation, Xbox and Dvd player properly?

I am looking for a optimum way to hook up my Tv, receiver, sound bar, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Dvd player.
I'm trying to have all my units use the sound bar and receiver when I turn them on. The receiver, tv and sound bar only have one optical cable spot. I did provide pics of the receiver, tv and sound bar.

What's the model of your AVR and Soundbar? I don't think you'll use both.

It is a little hard to tell what the ins and outs are, but I would think that you are going to need to connect everything to the receiver and the output of the receiver to the sound bar.

Looking for me, just google my username. I have used the same one for most sites for many years.

If I want to connect everything up to the receiver will I need a Digital Audio Optical switch since there is only 1 optical input?

Both your receiver and soundbar seem to be independently powered. You should get the optical switch, hook it directly to the soundbar, and leave the AVR out of the setup entirely.
