I think you probably need one of these - but they don't come cheap...

This looks identical to the Maplin unit, but at a (relative) fraction of the price.

ßeta: that was somewhat my thought - they're cheap as chips these days (certainly less than the Maplin device I mentioned).

I would buy the 1080P VGA to HDMI for £13 if the vendor will send it to Ireland. I presume I would need a HDMI cable as well ? This would connect to TV via USB port?

OK so HDMI from box to TV and how does it connect to laptop?

Have you asked them? and check that your TV has HDMI socket.
