When staying at crap hotels (ahem, Novotel), who make their crap TVs even crapper by disabling the HDMI inputs (so you can’t run your laptop through them), room-based boredom is no longer the default option.
Simply follow the instructions contained here. Repeated below:
3 1 9 7 5 3 mute
- Choose “Program Install”
- Choose a channel number that is high and out of the way (unless the TV has been nobbled to have a limited number of channels)
- Select input as HDMI1 or HDMI2
I had to turn the TV off and on to get out of the menu system as the remote didn’t seem to have a back button.
