    Connecting Wii to a Hotel TV

    I've had a couple of business trips lately and they've left me longing for some Wii action. The TVs in the Marriott I'm staying with has A/V input that I can plug into, but I cannot find out how to access the input or AUX functionality. There are no buttons on the TV or remote that denote it, and the Wii doesn't seem to work on channel 3 or 4.

    Anyone have this happen, and hopefully figured out a solution?

    Hotels typically shut A/V input off - I can't say why that is.
    You could ask the hotel but they will "rent" you a TV that has the ability to use A/V inputs.

    I'm wondering if you brought along one of those universal remotes -- found the right code, and changed inputs using the remote?

    I tried getting a universal remote. There's a radio shack near here, and I only found one model that had an AUX button on it. The Zenith code works to change channels and such on the TV, but the AUX button doesn't do jack. Oh well, time to keep searching for an answer

    You could carry around one of those portable DVD players. Some of them have composite inputs. Just be sure to get one with a fairly large screen.

    They usually turn off that functionality so you can't hook up a DVD player to the TV's to watch DVDs. That way you'll have to buy their programs on their pay-per-view channel, which really sucks. I tried hooking my Wii to a super nice LCD TV at my hotel right after I bought it the opening weekend, but sadly it didn't work.

    Well, I guess the TV thing was never meant to be. My next step is to buy a card with A/V input for my laptop. I've seen that some TV Tuner cards have this functionality ...
