Post How do I connect my Nexus 7 with my TV?

Basically, once I get my Nexus 7 (Tuesday) I'd love to play games like Dead Trigger and Shadowgun on a big display with my PS3 controller. I know that I can get the sixaxis controller app working but I have no idea how I'll display the image off my laptop onto the TV (which is not a smart TV) and (if possible with some sort of splitter charge at the same time). I'd really appreciate it if somebody could help me.

Pretty sure its just for file transfer, but I don't have a TV that supports it to test. There's no MHL so you can scratch that. This thing by HTC has been the only thing I've seen that lets you do some stuff, but seems pretty limited
