Can't see BIOS/Boot menu Screens with DVI to HMDI cable but can w/Component

I was wondering if anyone knew why I am unable to view my BIOS and boot Menu screens while using a DVI to HDMI cable to my 50" Sony SXRD, but I can when I use the component cables? On occasion I am able to view these screens, but it seems to only be when I make a major hardware component change. (i.e. the processor). So I know it is at least capable of displaying the screens with the DVI to HDMI connection. It's annoying because anytime I want to make a bios change I have to switch video connections.

Thanks
