Ultra to TV USB?

Is there a way to power the Roku Ultra by using a special USB to the TV usb? I'm trying to avoid using a wall outlet.

The USB on the Roku Ultra is for attaching a drive. It can't be used to power the Ultra. Your only option is the regular power connector.

If you want to use a device that can be powered by USB, get a Stick. Provided, of course, the power your TV puts out through the USB is enough to power a Stick.

A TV's USB ports don't supply enough power to power a Roku Ultra.
Yeah, I got some Rokus.
