Help...problem when recording with HD TV and DVD recorder

I have a new HD TV, cable box, & DVD recorder/player hooked up. When I record with my DVD recorder while my TV & cable box are on everything is fine. However, when the TV is off (cable box is always on). The sound gets recorded but there is no picture. Instead I get a message on the screen that says to try a different input & something about DVI.
I have tried different combinations of inputs/hook ups and nothing seems to work. What is wrong? I did not have this problem with my previous TV (which was not an HD and it was about 10 years old). I want to be able to record with the TV off, like I used to. Any suggestions?
