Same with our Samsung TV at home Andy needs the 230vac plugDepends on the tv. Strangely enough it won’t work on the usb in my 240v tv at home, so I have to use the 240v plug that it comes with, but it works off the usb in both my Avtex’s in the MoHo. When it isn’t getting the power it wants it informs you of this.
Can I answer this. I have a fire stick when I stay at my brother's one TV I have to plug the USB into mains the other TV I just plug into the usb slot on the TV. In the motorhome it works perfectly on 12v plugging into hdmi and usb slot on TV.Hi RoniDog - can I ask did it work as suggested from the TV? I'm just having the exact same question as my fire stick works of the mains on my home tv
should I mention side loading some extra apps so you can stream nearly any tv channel or film for free? great piece of kit the firestick when you learn how to use it to its best, and only £30 on amazon.... cheap entertainment for the van when you put it against a satellite systemoh gawd - it gets even more complicated ;-)
off to check which version it is!
My avtex w102d tv does not have hdmi port only usb so I don’t think we can use firestick with that one hopefully someone will tell me different
Sorry for the very long delay, I knew I had forgotten to reply to a thread. The answer is yes it works perfectly.Hi RoniDog - can I ask did it work as suggested from the TV? I'm just having the exact same question as my fire stick works of the mains on my home tv
just be careful not to overheat the usb port and circuit on the tv. Generally they don't produce more than a couple of hundred milliamps and especially the firestick 4k can try and draw 2 amps, so the socket would be working to it's maximum all the time.Even when my two firesticks have said power supply (from tv) is not enough, they both still work perfectly ok.
