Guys, I don't think this is going to work in most hotels. The connection speed in most hotels isn't even sufficient to reliably watch low-bitrate crap. Not to mention the increasing difficulty of getting to the HDMI ports in some of these installations, and then there's the crippled remotes & control panels that may not provide access to input selection on the TV.
Lodgenet is easily disabled by unplugging the Lodgenet box on the back of the TV. Access to the TV inputs works fine after that. A cheap universal can be programmed for the majority of the LG sets that populate these rooms as well.
I've watched plenty of Netflix in the rooms I stay in, mostly Marriotts or Marriott brand hotels. But I carry a Zyxel wifi AP with me and usually plug into the wired connection in the room, creating my own wifi network.
