Powering My Passport external hard drive

I have a 'My Passport' drive and I am able to plug it into my Philips TV (USB port) for viewing pictures, videos etc. The only problem is that the power delivered from the TV is on the limit and therefore I lose contact with the drive every so often. Is there a way that I can power the drive from another source (it only has a micro USB port)while plugged into the TV for the data?

Only a guess, but perhaps it would be possible to run the drive via a Powered USB Hub to TV?

That's sounds like and idea that would be worth trying!
