Advice Needed: HDMI or Component?

I have a new upconverting AV Receiver with two HDMI inputs and multiple Component inputs, and an HDMI output to the TV.

I have three devices and need to figure out the best way to hook up their video (I’ll be using optical audio connections):

  1. A DVD player which upconverts to 1080i
  2. An Apple TV that seems to output at 1080i
  3. A DVR (from the cable company) that outputs at 1080i

So here’s the question: I can only hook up 2 of the devices using HDMI … the other will have to be hooked up using Component.

How do I hook them up?
