    You might get a better and more informed response in the Plasma forum:)

    SKY+ obviously uses an optical connection for audio.
    An RGB scart to s-video converter seems to be common for connecting SKY to a plasma but SKY+ has a s-video connection which should do the job without further conversion.
    Of course if the amp has video switching and can convert s-video to component and then feed that to the plasma it may be the better option.

    Some of the more modern amps can take a s-video input and then output it through it's component video connections, it's the same sort of thing as taking a composite video signal then sending it out via the s-video output.
    The actually quality of these functions will obviously be dependent upon the internal makeup and capabilities of the amp but if the amp does it then surely it's worth a go before spending serious money on other devices.
