    There are some USB DVI adapters that you could use the mirroring function of OS X with. Make sure you get something that supports all the resolutions you are looking for.

    Also, you may not get QE/CI (Quartz Extreme and Core Image) on all of them. So choose wisely based on the features you need.

    What inputs does your TV and external monitor use?


    I believe there is a output dongle that splits to DVI, but not VGA/DVI. You would have to have multiple dongle convertors to do that. It might work.

    I have to admit, I am not sure why you would do this.
