    malariaboy -

    You can add 'T-Piece' connectors to 'split' your YUV output; though I wouldn't advise it. Your going to degrade the signal your delivering to your TV and Projector.

    You really need to contemplate a signal Distribution Amp (DA) and depending on what length of cable is going to your Projector you may want one with an inbuilt 'line driver' to drive long cables.

    Unfortunately DA's (with line driver) are not inexpensive - normally around 350.00 GBP.

    You can use a Zektor HDS4 Switcher 'reverse wired' to enable you to switch one source to up to four displays; though your still looking at nearly 250.00 GBP. See http://www.zektor.com

    How does the projector fair with the S-Video outputs from your SKY+ and DVD player? Possibly a decent S-Video cable to the PJ will suffice

    Best regards

    Joe

    I had a similar requirement, which I solved with a 4 input x 2 Output Matrix switcher.
    It has 4 inputs and you can remotely switch any input to any output. It switches YPbPr and L & R video. I am actually using it to switch RGBHV using the audio switch for the sync.
    Works wonderfully and gives a great deal of flexibility. it cost appro £120 deliverd from US
