I know I may be asking a bit much but does anybody know if it would be possible to connect the HDMI output of the Pi to the corresponding socket on the laptop and redirect the signal to the VGA, even if it means running some conversion software in between?.

and could be grabbed at Maplin/ebay and soldered in as it's only 19
contacts. Depends on the telly and your soldering skills of course :)
