If you're using HDMI input from your laptop, the tv should be on HDMI.

Discovered the issue. Older Sheraton with older LG TV. Unscrew the coax cable at the back, TV works great.

They want you to use the hotels pay per view. That’s how they make money. So they disable the HDMI ports on the TVs

TV is on hdmi. Tested all hdmi Inputs. None work. Says no display.

Usually function key+F8

It's the TV. Neither laptop nor roku works.

Marriotts always work for me. Long trips I bring games

How do I "cut to the chase"?
