Default Using Directv Box without Directv Service

My office has a 60 inch HD plasma monitor. There is no tuner as we use the monitor for videoconferencing. With the NCAA fast approaching, I would like to convert the monitor into a TV. We have access to the local cable company's line with a digital signal. I have an old Directv H10 receiver. Does anyone know if I can use the Directv box as the tuner for the monitor and access the signal from the cable company without having a Directv signal? If so, do I plug the cable into the Sat In connection or the off air antennae connection? Also, will I have to change any of the settings on the converter box to make it use the cable signal as its only source? Thanks in advance.

The H10 will not be able to interpret the cable co's signal.
