    Hi MEYOUMEYOU, and welcome to TSG.

    Exactly what is the device on which this HDMI port is located?

    I am not PK-hero. The device in their link is for getting an HDMI output using a video controller plugged into a computer's USB port. It will NOT work for getting an HDMI signal into the USB port of any TV set.

    What other inputs does your TV have and what is the exact model number?
