Hello,
 
I would use an HDMI between the Receiver and the TV.
 
I would use component between the DVD player and the Receiver. 
 
If the reciever can't transcode from component to HDMI you will need a device that can.
 
What is a sky HD box?

The HDMI of my el-chipo 42'' LCD tv can take 720p only. So I have to use VGA (analog) hi-freq cable to connect it to computer. The same goes for the projector I have (HDMI @ 720p only, VGA - 1080i).
