If I'm running HDMI or Component and I hookup an AV sender that works on the component RCA outputs, will it work?

Most if not all analog RF video systems are composite modulation, therefore using anything other than composite is a complete waste of time and effort, I suspect you have no idea how that technology works, if so my advise is composite is as good as it gets for RF distribution, its simply how it works, if you want something different then you are after a digital solution such as IPTV via a media server.

Basically I used to run an AV sender from the MySky box. What I'm asking is, if I use the sender on a MySkyHDi box and its outputting via HDMI, will it be able to output in composite an the same time?

Yes composite, is fine, and you should be able to manipulate the AR or the composite output independantly of the HDMI output.

But as I said based on your first post, component is of no use, as AV senders are composite by nature.

Edit: all these new HD devices (ie the HDi and new FreeView HD boxs) have dual output chains, one for HD/SD output via HDMI or 576/720p/1080i and the other for downscaled SD over composite/svideo, these operate pretty much independantly.
