VGA is an analog signal, HDMI is a digital signal, so you need an HDMI to VGA converter box. You will need to set the laptop to send audio out through the speaker connection and not the HDMI. It's a bit of a process to get this to work, but it is doable. A few things before you start doing this...
Make sure your netbook can handle 1080p content being streamed. These PC's don't have good processors so you need to make sure, if your library contains this HD media.
HDCP will not be passed through from netbook to television, so you may be limited in what you can send to the TV.
