Thank you! I think I'll give it a shot.  If it works, great and I'll post
the results.  If it doesn't, lesson learned and I'll still post the results.

You are correct, N810 does not have video output. But there was a
similar question posted to lwn.net and someone suggested to use
USB2VGA for that:



It might or might not work. But this would be a hacker project, not
for normal users.
