Mini Display port Question


my 4k monitor has a Mini displayport , do i need to buy active adapter to take say a HDMI output from a GPU to the mini port on the monitor ? since i bought a HDMI to MINI displayport cable off of Monoprice and on 2 systems connecting the HDMI i cant get any video to output , DVI and normal DP both work fine on the card/Monitor . i looked around before i bought the cable and it should of worked but i ant sure if i got a DOA cable did see a few complaints about that or if its not a BI-directional cable like DP to DP and HDMI-DVI/HDMI are .
