TV+ box USB port makes the thumb drive very hot

When plugging a thumb drive into the tv+ box, it becomes very hot even though there are no running apps accessing the device.

Hi @Xillvion, it's not unusual for a USB/flash drive to get a little warm when connected or plugged into a device whether a few minutes or hours. Even when I connect a flash drive to my Macbook using a USB-C hub it gets hot in just a few minutes.

@Carla_P Don't think so. Connecting a thumb drive to my windows 10 laptop via USB 3.0 port, it doesn't even get very hot. Even when copying the windows installation files on it, it stayed a bit warm.

Having it very hot can damage the device.
