Customer Question
There is a usb...

There is a usb port on my TCL Roku TV, but when I plug a device into it (a DVD player) the device doesn't show up anywhere on the screen. How to I access a USB device?

Technician's Assistant: What does your TV screen look like when you try to connect your digital media player? Is there anything at all displayed?

Yes, there are lots of choices - antenna HDMI 1 and 2, Amazon, Netflix. etc.

Technician's Assistant: Is your digital media player connected to the TV, or is it connected to a power outlet?

To the TV

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Video Expert to know before I connect you?

No, that's it.

Hi, I'm Nathan.
Sorry to hear that you're having trouble with this but I'll do my best to help you.

What is the model number of the tv?
Are you sure you are using a USB connection, and not perhaps a hdmi port?
