Looking connection info for my setup



Sorry for being a noob but i just need a little info if poss, here goes...

I have a Samsung LE40M87, Sky +, Wii, XBOX 360, Yamaha AV-4101 and PS3 (Amp and PS3 should arrive middle of next week from pixmania). The details for the Amp are below, what i would like to know is how i can get the most out of the system and the TV, i also need to know what cables i need to order as i have only ordered two HDMI cables so far. I will hopefully be upgrading to Sky HD in the next 3 months.

USB port
4 audio video inputs (including 3 S-Video)
2 analogue audio inputs
3 HD-compatible YUV inputs (1080i/720p)
2 1080p-compatible HDMI inputs
2 digital optical inputs
1 digital coaxial input
5.1 evolutive input

1 HDMI output
YUV monitor output
1 composite or S-video monitor output
2 analogue audio outputs (DVR+MD)
Subwoofer output for bass box

Am i right in thinking the HDMI output goes to the TV? or is the Amp only for audio?

Thanks in advance people

I'm pretty sure the Yamaha 4101 only switches HDMI so there is no need to connect your video sources to it, other than maybe the Xbox 360 and wii as I would suggest getting the wii component cable and getting another componenet cable from the monitor out to the TV. I would stick with audio connections only for the rest. You will probably need either a toslink splitter or an optical to coax converter box as your amp has 2 optical inputs and you will need 3 (Xbox 360, sky+ and PS3).
