    Alright so up until now I was plugging my hard drive (with movies etc) into the USB port on my TV. Today the port on the TV seems to have died. I plugged the drive into my PC and it works fine so it’s gotta be the port. The only two ports left on the TV are 3 HDMI ports.

    So I was wondering if they made some kind of spitter that will plug into the HDMI port but also has a usb port on it so I can plug my drive into that. Thanks for any help. Not sure what else I can do

      There were a few rare TVs that had (again rare) HDMI+Ethernet HDMI ports but HDMI has no power for the USB drive or USB signals so such a cable is not possible.

      The cheapest fix might be some BluRay player that can play from USB ports.

      You could try something like a Media Player.

      The HDMI splitter allows you to connect multiple HDMI devices to a single input on your TV, projector, or even a computer screen. This will enable you to connect multiple TVs or projectors and play the same video source on them.
      It is useful when you want to watch video from your computer or a mobile device on your TV but don’t want to sacrifice hi-def quality. WyreStrom’s HDMI splitter enables you to share one HDMI source among two displays with one HDMI cable.
