Roku took over my cable channels

I just connected a new Roku Express to my television. If I switch to HDM1 to watch my usual cable channels, the minute I hit the cable box remote the set hops back to the Roku setting, HDM2. I can't get it to stay on the cable channels. Help, please. Roku Express (3930, 3931 series)
