Caesars Palace - NO Console Hookups in Rooms!

rygodrygod In TrainingJoined: Posts: 107
I contacted Caesars Palace Guest Services 702-731-7110 and they informed me no electronics can be connected to the room TVs.

I asked specifically about PS3 then asked about possibility for any others and answer was "NO" to all.

They did say we could bring our own monitors and plug consoles into them.

Please let me know if there is an exception to this policy for EVO guests.

Thought it would be good to let people know not to lug their ps3 around the country unnecessarily.

FYI: This information conflicted with what the generic Harrahs Reservation rep told me. good thing i pressed him further and got direct contact with Caesars LV.
you garbage

    Any hotels policy is not to allow you to connect a console to their setup. It will all come down to seeing if the ports are blocked.

    if the ports aren't blocked then I cant see why not

    question is the remote they give you, does it have a video input button, why would it since you shouldn't be able to change anything anyways unless you brought something yourself, of course if the tv doesn't have it

    Big time Vegas hotel TVs might be different but I've been in hotels before where there is a LAN port on the TV. If you disconnect that LAN cable then turn the TV off and on, all the special hotel programming stops working and then it becomes just a normal TV like any other.

    I emailed the hotel I'm staying at (Flamingo's across the street from Caesar's), and the CRT's they have allow component hookups.

    In my experience, the higher end hotels usually have TVs that don't block/limit connections. The cheaper hotels will often put a block on it or have specific TVs that only have a normal coax cable out.

    That's no guarantee that Caesar's will have it...so hopefully SOMEONE will find out. Worst case, I'm bringing my ASUS EVO monitor anyway.

    FWIW, here's a description of a nicer room than we have the says it has HDMI. This is not mentioned on the Forum Tower Deluxe rooms...so who knows.

    Is this still an issue?

    I'm really curious about this. I was planning on bringing my Ps3 to evo for room casuals and training but I don't really want to risk bringing it if there isn't going to be hookups for them on the TV's there. Has there been any word or are we all going to be up in the air till evo time?

    This is pretty dumb. Now me and my buddies have to make room in the car to lug a TV all the way to Vegas..

    To get around the remote issue if you can plug your system in do what people have been doing for years at tournys, bring a cheap universal remote. Buy one for $5 and you can change the input on your tv.

    I put a pillow in my suitcase and just rest the screen of the monitor on the pillow, when you close the suitcase its pretty secure.

    Any update on whether the rooms have hdmi ports standard or not? I booked a room that's not one of the evo rooms so I'm not sure whether I should bring my ps3 or not.

    Dreamcast needs CRTs, but I got a feeling Caesars is gonna have LCDs... This is trouble for big "Award" matches because from what I hear, evo floor is off limits.

    i called the hotel a couple days back and the booking lady talked to the front desk and they said that the port hookups work and that you can bring your systems, as long as you bring your "own" wires.

    ok folks my group came out early to take in some sites. we were booked in the forum tower but got a free upgrade to the pallace tower. The tv in the room has the composite or s video hook up ONLY. The tv had an input button but it beeped when it was pushed.

    In the end we called the front desk and they had to send up an engineer who had to remap the chanel 2 to be the composie input but my ps3 is up and running.

    What's good with those TV's that were supposedly gonna be in the bathroom mirrors?

    I was so hype on setting up Starfox 64 on that TV and just leaving it running all weekend.

    You talking about composite (yellow connector)? Or is it possible to hook up via component (red/green/blue cables)?

    Yeah you dont want to touch or pick up any of that stuff... I went to UFC last year and stayed at my buds hotel room in Caesars... I picked up the camera on the minibar and my bud shook his head and said "thanks bro, that just added a camera to my bill"

    oops...

    i am staying up in the palace tower and in here we have one of the silver sony tvs. its kinda hard to see at first but the adapters are all down the left side and the tv can tilt to help get a better view.

    also make sure if you are hooking up a sony you are going to have to take it out of HD mode if it was in it before, we learned that the hard way too

    Did that..........still can't see it. Want to avoid knocking down the minibar stuff.
    What are the steps in hooking composite up? all I can see that the red may be in the middle. I may end up hooking it up blindly.

    What is that exactly............how would I know if it's in HD mode or not?
