Tv at the rio


#1

Anyone know what they’re like? Laggy LCDs, can we even hook up systems?


#2

2009 horrible CRT, bad colors and image. Parts cutoff, and I don’t remember any settings I could change. When you plug your composite cables in, it just switches to that input.


#3

ah I can confirm that, we just got here


#4

CRT? Snap, at least there won’t be any lag.


#5

At least the TV’s work! I know for a fact that the TV’s at the Palace Station didn’t work first year I went to EVO. Nobody bothered to bring an extra monitor either.


#6

Are composite cables the only thing you can hook up to it? What about component? And how hard is it to hook up systems to the tv? I remember last time at the rio, the TV was on a long pull out swivel that could move sidewise, making it easier to access the back of the tv to plug shit in, but i could be wrong. Can anyone confirm? Pics !!

Wait, Rio has CRTs? At least they’re playable.

Puerto Rico room will have an ASUS at least. I’ll post where I am tonight.


#8

Yeah we should have a evo screen coming to, people coming by are bringing some as well, crt isn’t all that terrible otherwise i guess


#9

I’m bringing an xbox with VGA cables, and running over to Goodwill and buying a CRT monitor for 10 bucks.

Problem solved.

I waqs wondering about this, their video tour doesnt even show tv’s in their rooms so I called…
How the F can the “ALL SUITES” vegas hotel not have hdtv’s Ive stayed in 2 and 3 star budget motels that had 32" hdtvs and programming, and while possibly laggy at least an available hdmi port.

So now I gotta take 2 monitors through airport…ugz

can anyone confirm highspeed internet connectivity in the rooms? wired? wireless? browser required to authenticate?


#11

Did they confirm all rooms have the crts? Can you reach the plug ins?

I don’t think I can bring an asus on as a carry on. I was considering shipping it but what a hassle.


#12

all standard rooms do


#13

So the tvs will work fine with reg inputs for the 360? i hope so, CEO hotel had crap tvs.


#14

Buy a universal remote for the room tv’s/,
