Technician's Assistant: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?

Some motels will prevent you connecting external devices.

If there is a cord already in place and it fits your Roku then it may be permitted to connect it - just ensure you select the correct input.

If it doesn't show up on the screen then you may have to check with their reception.
