Help connecting TV, DVD/Surround & Cable Box in one input.

The DVD and the Surround Sound system are in one box. So the problem is that I connected the cable box to the DVD player. And I connected the DVD to the TV thru a HDMI cable. So I'm on that input, and I can change the function on the DVD player to cycle thru "DVD", "TV/Cable", and other things. When it's on DVD, the TV shows it just fine, and works with the surround sound. But when I'm on TV/Cable the TV shows only a blue screen but it plays the sound of the channel through the surround sound.
The Cable box and the DVD are connected with the 5 pronged audio/video cable. (red/white/blue/green/red I think). What can I do to have the TV show the channel? Do I need to connect the Cable box and the DVD with an S-Video cable or something?
