We have several HDTV's throughout the building that are connected to TV's using VNC viewer to post content (video, power poitn slideshows, etc).  I'm curious to know if anyone has had any success using a bootable USB with an OS (i.e. - Ubuntu) on the HDTV to boot into the OS where the Rise Vision Player can be accessed.  My goal is to avoid having to use PC's if possible for hosting the client player.  Thanks!

What's the make and model of the TV?

The first thing to check would be whether the TV can boot from a USB device.  I was doing a quick search to see if this is possible, and it doesn't look promising that this could be done.

There are android sticks that are quite small that plug into the HDMI input of screens, this may be a better alternative and likely to provide fewer headaches.

If you, or somebody else, does get Linux booted from USB on a TV, I'd love to hear about it!

Thanks.
