    Presumably you're looking to connect all 3 devices without any switching via a receiver. I'm not sure what connectors the Sky+ box has but my first thoughts would be:

    575 - as Sean says, component
    Sky+ - S-video (if available or perhaps via a SCART->S-Video converter)
    PC - DVI

    To some extent though it depends on what you'll be watching most and what priorities you have for PQ. For instance, the PC could use S-Video and Sky+ perhaps the RGB into the M1 connector (not sure about this).

    If you're interested in using the PC as an HTPC then you'd be well advised to upgrade the video card and definitely use DVI.
