I'm staying at a Marriott (in Brooklyn). They have 32" LG LCDs in most rooms (not sure the exact model). I brought my 360 along in hopes of being able to hook it up (the TV has visible component inputs as well as a control panel with composite, VGA and HDMI connections. The control panel has instructions for making a laptop splitscreen (with whatever tv station is playing).


I'm wondering if anyone has ever taken a dvd player or console with them to a Marriott with this type of setup. I'm going to call the front desk to see if they know how to get it to work when I return (I called earlier and the lady had no clue but was going to send up an "engineer" - I was getting ready to leave so I passed). The tv/video/source button on the TV is disabled and there's no such button on the remote (it has a PC/TV button that the instructions say to use...it doesn't do anything when hooked up via hdmi or composite).


Thanks!

Update for anyone who cares.


Tried a universal remote - switching inputs was still disabled. Looked a little harder at the back fo the TV. There was a panel covering the "good stuff" - most all of the inputs, etc. I peeled that back a bit (easier to do with a phillips screwdriver) and voila. The OnCommand box and a little metal box that the OnCommand was plugged into. I disconnected the phoneline going to the TV from the OnCommand box. The hotel remote stopped working but the universal started. I could switch inputs. Yay! Success.


The hotel comes equipped with a connectivity panel. This should've "just worked". Regardless, I had to use the component inputs on the TV so I could get audio too. For some reason audio over HDMI was not working (no options in the TV's menu either).

I booked 2 nights with my wife for valentines day weekend. We bring our collection of movies on a hard drive to watch when we go away. I was furious to find the input button did not work on the tv in our room. All I needed to do was unplug the phone cable and I was able to use the input button on the tv to select vga. I can not thank you enough for this post. I had to register with the site just to thank you.

RESOLVED:


Marriott hotel, LG TV, unable to select HDMI input.

Key lock on message displayed on screen when side buttons are used.

Asked on Reception how to connect to TV. They say you are not allowed (damn!).



Original LG remote control replaced with generic remote, with no option to enter the MENU.

TV model - 32LG300C (special hotel TV).


SOLUTION:


I've found a workaround.


Swith off the TV from remote, swith it on from remote and press 0 (zero) key on remote control several times quickly.

This will change the input source to VGA, Composite, HDMI etc.


For some models, you need to unplug the cable from controlling box on the back of the panel.

In my case this didn't work, and TV won't switch on.
