Trying a USB connected hard-drive shouldn't break the television. You will definitely want to check to make sure that the voltage on the USB drive doesn't exceed the limits of the USB's power input.

In the U.S., the device has a maximum of 500mA or 5 volts. Check the manual in your region to verify this before attempting to connect a HD device. Otherwise, no it shouldn't have any bad affect on the TV.

Power limit

I've seen someone report seeing a screen message "USB overload" or similar when this happens, so presumably there's some protection. I'd have thought the disc would simply fail to work.

You can get a "Y-cable" for connecting devices to two USB ports, increasing the power capacity. I note, though, that only USB1 is designated for HDD connection, so maybe the current limit is different for each port.

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?
