Power in via USB

Post by Jet2F »

Here is a question that I don't believe has been asked.
Can the new Flex line of tuners be powered via the USB-A port thru a USB-A to USB-A cable
connected to my laptop USB-A port that is capable of 2A charging?

No, the HDHomeRun FLEX is a 12V device. The USB 5V rail can't be used to back feed power.
