HDMI 3(1.4): - Soundbar (hw450) - for cec purposes(?)

There is no reason to change your current configuration.
The soundbar will only function if plugged into the HDMI-ARC input. No other HDMI INPUT will send audio out to a soundbar.
CEC is completely independent from ARC so it will work over all HDMI inputs. Whether is works correctly is another matter.
ARC serves no function of any kind for an Apple TV or any other source. Plug the ATV into any non ARC input.
