Hello, I’m Nathan, and I’ll be assisting you today. My livelihood depends on your positive feedback, so your satisfaction is my highest priority.
Sorry to hear you’re having trouble.
You are not likely to be able to change this.
Hotels purposely lock down the functionality of the tvs and convert them to be used only with their broadcast system.
To change that would require the use of a special engineers remote, it is not something that you can do yourself with the lodgenet (or similar) remote that they have in the room.
You can call the front desk and ask them if they would open up the input selection for you, but that is the only way that you would be able to access it, which again is by design and is a restriction that the hotel puts in place.
Best regards, ***** ***** for the news,
I am an independent technician and I've spent my personal time, unpaid, in an effort to assist with the question for which you solicited my services. This site works on the honor system, and to that end, I have prioritized working with you ahead of other paying customers.
Although you’ve already paid your fee to the site, I am only compensated for my efforts when customers such as yourself leave positive feedback for my work. I apologize this is not the outcome you had hoped for, though this is really beyond either of our control. I do hope you’ll consider leaving a 5 star rating for me, rather than “shoot the messenger”, so that I may get credit for my time spent in good faith to answer your question accurately. Rating 1 or 2, or not rating at all, does not produce a refund, it only penalizes me for trying to help.
