How to change HDMI port settings from output to input to accept signals from cable/satellite box?

I have a new dv8t Entertainment PC with the HP Integrated HDTVHybrid Tuner.  The instruction manual provides 2 ways to connect the laptop to a cable/satellite box:  (1) coax/rf; or (2) HDMI.  The coax is a no-brainer; got it up and running in 10 minutes.  However, I am unable to get it to work connecting the HDMI cable, as the HDMI port on the laptop appears to be stuck in output mode.  How do I change the configuration of the HDMI port to "input" so that it can accept signals from my cable box?
