Stuck on a blank HDM1 screen

Brought my Roku remote and Express sensor for a 2-month stay. Attached the sensor via HDM1 port and USB port. But stuck on a blank HDM1 screen. Appear to be missing a step? Any help is appreciated!

I would power it from the wall and not the tv usb port. You have cellphone, try its usb ac adapter.
