Help with chromecast

    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

    if you have two usbs u could use a special cable that draws power from both usbs...
