Think you will need to use composite cables ( the red, white and yellow) for the Sky box.

Not sure abut speaker wires.

The standard Sky box doesn't have that many connection options so you're a bit limited - a Sky+ or Sky HD box is better in that regard (as you can use component/hdmi video directly into the 605). Unfortunately, composite probably won't look that good blown up through a projector. One option is to set your Sky box to make sure it's outputing RGB SCART and then use a component connection coverter like this one. Otherwise consider upgrading to Sky+ or Sky HD.

Soundwise, again you're a bit limited with a standard Sky box - you'll have to use the standard RCA connectors on the back using a pair of phono cables like this. If you're going to be sticking with composite, then you can take the sound out of the scart connector on the back of the Sky box (using a single cable like this one outputing both video and sound). Because the standard Sky box doesn't have an optical digital output for surround you'll have to set the Onkyo 605 to Prologic II; you'll get a form of surround sound through all the speakers.

For speaker cable try something like this or the cheaper Gale Symphony 100. You'll need a cable to connect up your sub to the Onkyo 605 as well; it has a phono connector on both ends i.e. like this one.
