VGA PC to HDMI TV display challenge

Hi

I would like to use a spare 26" TV as my monitor, it is a home office desk so currently have a Belkin VGA KVM switch connected to personal desktop and work Surface Pro (after buying an active adapter for VGA to HDMI).

I am trying to keep the KVM switch and find an adapter that will take VGA from PC and display via HDMI on the TV, this seems to be a much more difficult thing to find.

Just wondering if anyone else has this type of construct working and how to get the TV to show something. Passive adapters do not get a signal to the TV or even the monitor in situ if I switch input port
