Hi, I sseem to have a problem with my chromecast.
its works perfectly on every tv in the house apart from one.
I have it powered via usb port however it doesn't seem to power it via usb on one tv it works with the mains tho.
I have tried a usb flash drive in the tv and that works but not the chromecast any hel would be appreciated as Google can't.
Thanks in advance.

A usb flash drive draws very little power
A chromecast will pull more than the standard 500mA usb
You will need to use the mains adapter if the tv does not have a high power usb
