The issue was a soundbar creating interference. Thanks for your reply thoughNot all TV's have the same power output for the USB port. Some newer, and I do mean NEWER TV's made in the last 1 year or so have the possibility to handle of power output of 5W/1A, which is what the TV stick requires. However, you will not know this unless you look on the surrounding area around the USB Port on the TV itself to see if it indicates what the power output is. If it doesn't, then consult your owners manual that came with your TV, or just look up your TV model online and look for USB Port Power output.
