Yes you can.

If you have a USB mouse and keyboard or one with a USB dongle, you can put a USB C hub with PD port in between your CCWGTV and your power supply to give you USB ports to use on your device (watch out for power consumption, you might need a stronger power supply). You can find these easily on Amazon or any electronics webstore.

Thank you for the detailed information.   To be honest, I wasn't sure a keyboard and mouse could be used with CCWGTV.   I should have explained in my original post .... most hotels have a large TV screen but limited cable channels, and I thought that hooking up a CCWGTV rather than watching something on my "tiny" cellphone was a better option.   However, using the WIFI in most hotels requires scrolling and clicking on an Accept button to get past their Disclaimer page and I was not able to do this just using the CCWGTV remote.   The only solution I could think of was using a keyboard and/or mouse.    😞

Thanks again for your detailed reply.
