Without makes and model numbers you won't get an exact answer.
The number of USB ports on the TV isn't relevant.
You need to connect the audio output of the TV to the HTS. If the TV has a headphone jack or analog audio output then connect that to the HTS aux input.
If the TV has an optical digital audio out (most common) then you will need a DAC to convert to analog

Check that the TV can be set to output in PCM, Some TVs won't send audio from USB sources out of the TV at all.
Check the TV manual how to use the optical audio output.
