Hi Rodney,

Yes, you should be able to use any USB port to power a streaming adaptor like Google's ChromeCast that is plugged into your HDMI port. It will not be used for anything except power on the USB side and any USB port should be able to supply at least 500mA at 5V. If a port has a power indicator or HDD, it would be able to supply even more.

Hope this helps!

How do I get my RCA streaming media player to play on my Phillips 36" t.v using HDMI cable? I have new HDMI cable but nothing comes on the t.v


did you change the input source on the TV. What HDMI input did you plug into HDMI1 HDMI2 HDMI3 ? The input source has to match the port you put the hdmi cable into on the TV.
If no HDMI output on your media player use an adapter RCA to HDMI adapter. Here is an example of such a device
