    How to get the name of a usb port?

    timerift

      I recently purchased an Intel Compute Stick (WIndows 10 OS), and I was wondering how I can get the USB port name for programming purposes.

       

      The goal of the program is relatively simple: at a certain time, the compute stick (which is plugged into the hdmi port of a TV) will have the ability to send a message to the TV via USB cable. This message will be able to change the input of the current display. For example, if I was playing xbox on HDMI 1, the program could switch the input from HDMI 1 to HDMI 2 (the channel where I have my cable feed) so the 5 o'clock news comes on.

       

      I tried running a program that identifies all the current USB ports, and zero were found.

       

      Thanks in advance for the help.
