Xfinity 4k - XG1v4 Cable Box HDMI & Ethernet?

Xfinity 4k - XG1v4 Cable Box HDMI & Ethernet?

I just got my Xfinity 4k - XG1v4 Cable Box and love it, but it didn't come with a manual. Does anyone know what the "HDMI In" port is for, and how you access it. Also what is the ethernet port for?

The ethernet port and the HDMI In port are disabled.  The installation instructions are pretty straight-forward.  Here is a feature comparison:
