I purchased three Intel Compute Stick STK1AW32SC for three 4K smart TVs (model is skyworth40E6100U) recently. For your reference, I connect the compute sticks to HDMI ports of the TVs, and charge the sticks 24/7 by connecting them to a usb hub. The problem is - every time I turned on the TV and started the computer system, it always stopped operating halfway, turned into black screen, showed "no signal" and then rebooted. This was looping for many times. How can I solve this problem? Thank you.
A port on a USB Hub, even a USB 3.0 hub, cannot provide enough power for the ICS to operate properly (it needs a full 2A).
As Al says, you need to use the original supply that came with the stick.

Your TV should have an USB port. Connect the USB part of the stick to that port instead of to an USB hub.
That is what I did to mine. (I have the same sick as yours.)
It works great for me. When I turn on the TV, the Stick is also turned on. Conversely, shutting off the TV will automatically shutting off the stick.
The issue is the amps required for proper power to the stick. There is no such thing as "charging" the stick.
As long as the stick is getting proper power, fine. Not all hubs and TVs are the same. If you have problems, use the adapter that came with the stick.
Well, I saw the word here: ".I connect the compute sticks to HDMI ports of the TVs, and charge the sticks 24/7 by connecting them to a usb hub."
So, I guess you did.
David, ok. So what? In a world of six billion people, why get wrapped around the axle for something so insignificant?
Let us just agree to let it go, and move on with life, ok?
