    It makes no difference unless you need HDMI wth ARC, 

    which on most TVs is available on only one input.

    In such a case, the konfuzer should be connected to the other input.

    Use either for whatever you like, it's just a different key press or menu selection to pick the appropriate input for the device you want to view.

    The only time using a specific port may matter is when it relates to audio devices; either a separate audio input with a DVI device connected to an HDMI port, or with a "Home theatre" amp instead if the TV speakers for audio, if the TV does not have audio return (ARC) on all HDMI ports.

    Either will work.  you might have to go in to the settings and select the one you use
