VGA to HDMI cables rarely work.

There's quite a call for such but the "cable" variety rarely work. I won't discuss why but you need to tell more.

Maybe this model of TV has VGA? Tell what model it is.

We could look at USB to HDMI but I can't tell what the intent is. Video? Gaming? USB is too slow for that.

Since you extended the desktop, then it sounds proper.

Now start up VLC PLAYER in non-fullscreen and drag it to Display 2.
