Cable, HDTV, coxial, hdmi: newbie needs help

I just bought a Panasonic TH-50PX77U. Great tv so far. I have digital cable service and wanted to hook up my cable/dvr box (supplied by cable company) to the tv via HDMI. No signal, which I assume means the port is blocked. I heard that cable companies disable a lot of features on their dvrs. So, I had to connect using the standard coaxial cable I used with my old tube tv. Since the digital cable service is coming into the dvr via coaxial, is it still digital going to the tv via coaxial? Do I need a digital coaxial cable? Should I start griping with the cable company to open up HDMI? All help is appreciated.
