Is there an easy way to send video from the usb port to the VGA input of my TV. We are using Ubuntu 10?

There is a cable available to do that. You can't just wire it up that way since usb is serial data and vga is not serial. The cable has a chip or chips to make the conversion. Google "usb to vga cable".

Seconded. It will work for video out, but it will suck -- it's technically a video card -- and good video cards use gigabits of bandwidth, where usb only has 500 megabit.

better use a pci card for this. i have seen some stuffs like it. and the quality sucks. so your motheboard should support either sli or crossfire.
