Sorry I only know a few things.

I'd reformat/reload this USB drive and try again. I don't see make/model of all things but for the models that record on USB, well you have to format it on the TV. But then I would be using my old crystal ball.

TVs with recording features.

Have you format the media on the TV. Remember I can't find the model number so I am guessing a lot here.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
