Discussion Connecting multiple hdmi devices to tv, not enough ports

Hello all, looking for some advice connecting multiple HDMI devices to Samsung TV. Devices as follows,

Foxtel Pay Tv Box
Samsung Blu Ray Player
Nintendo Wii U
Soundbar

If I plug my soundbar and Nintendo into a HDMI Switch, how do I operate both at the same time? Or am I better off plugging the soundbar directly into the TV and all other devices into the Switch? My other option is to use an optical cable directly to the tv for the soundbar (I'd prefer hdmi) and have the other devices plugged straight into the tv. Still learning, so just asking for opinions on the best way to set everything up as I'll be running cables behind the wall and only want to do it once.

Thanks in advance.
