    So I can connect my phone to something like a 1TB USB stick/pen thing and transfer the files and then stick that into the tv?

    I think that could be a reasonable solution. I could really do with a cheap lap top.

    You can swipe from smartphone to TV without cables.

    You still in Haywards Heath?

    I have an old laptop with a dodgy screen connection you can have if you want it. (I'm in Woking, so we could meet halfway and swap. or whatever).

    Currently (IIRC) it's got an Ubuntu install on it, so if you're happy with that I'll flatten it and reinstall ubuntu as a clean install (so you don't get all my gumf).

    A promise not to complain that it has issues.
    (i realised that it also has a dodgy power connector. It works, but you have to get the charger plug sat "just right" in the socket).

    Give me a few days to find an hour to sort out a fresh os install and its yours.
