    The Hi-Fi man who has sold me my AV kit has thrown in an Optical interconnect for between the DVD and AV Amp... is this the best interconnect to use for the Digital Audio?

    I already have Belden Component cable runing to my PJ which will be plugged directly into the DVD, so I only require an interconnect for Audio for this.

    I will however need to take a video cable into the 2805 from the 2910 for anything I wish to switch out to the TV. Is Component the best method for the connection between DVD & AV Amp for this? Note: I only have S0Video cabled to my television point.

    I have a very similar set-up to yours. PJ, Denon 2910, Denon 2803. There are two questions in your thread I think:
    I used to have a decent optical audio cable but I decided I liked the sound better from a Chord audio co-axial cable I bought, so that is what I use.
    As for the video connection routing through to the TV - if you only have S-Video in to the TV then - why not take the S-Video out from the DVD. (Less signal path issues). If you do want to route it through the amp for convenience then I'm not sure that the amp will down-convert the component to S-Video - I think it will need S-Video in from the DVD player to route it.
    To make the system nice and have the amp doing all the routing you could connect the S-Video Out DVD>AMP and the Component Out DVD>AMP and then take S-Video Out AMP>TV and Component Out AMP>PJ. Connect the sound DVD>AMP via Coax or Optical and you have a nice neat switched system. That set-up worked really well for me - until I upgraded the PJ to HDMI !
