The usb on most cable boxes is for the technician to perform service on the cable box like updating firmware, diagnostics, etc.

As far as getting your laptop to your tv. Do a search. I used to own a converter box that would allow me to view a computer or any external device on my older tv.

Sorry, I can't remember the name or model though.
