Assuming the SkyHD has an HDMI output, the connections will be pretty straightforward.


HDMI from PS3 output to one of the HDMI inputs on the Pioneer.

HDMI from SkyHD output to the other HDMI input on the Pioneer.

HDMI from output on Pioneer to an HDMI input on your TV.


That's it!  You're fortunate that the Pioneer system has two HDMI inputs.  That keeps things very simple as HDMI carries both audio and video.


You will switch sources on the Pioneer system only.  The TV will stay on whichever HDMI input you connect.  You should also disable the audio on the TV to avoid any echoes with the Pioneer speakers.


Finally, don't get really expensive HDMI cables.  The cables at www.monoprice.com or www.bluejeanscables.com are just fine.  Cables at retailers are vastly overpriced.
