All done. The answer was so very simple Im embarrassed to have posted this issue in the first place. Oh well, perhaps some other poor sap wont have to endure the embarrassment in the future.
All it took was a USB extender. I bought one but while in line I received a call from an overseas cousin. While on that call my son was attempting to get in touch with me. I ignored his call, bought the part, got home and found the same part in my sons hand. He had found the exact part being used to increase the length of our web cam USB cable. He had been calling me to not buy the new one.
Ill get my $20.00 back tomorrow.
Below is NOT a pic of the simple fix. Im either too tired or jinxed, or well you know, too something...
It is a male USB to a length of wire, to a female USB. Plug the male into the tv, was a bit tight but in it went. Plug the Thumb Drive device into the female end and were viewing the 1000s of pics of my beautiful first grandchild.
Again I heartily thank Platypus. Happy New Year, Cheers!
