The first gen Nexus 7 does not have HDMI out :-(
Probably the best thing to do with it would be to look at the price of a newdisplay. (I believe the touch screen and LCD are fused), or take it apartand sell the individual pieces on ebay.
you can pick up a new touch screen on ebay for around ~$20.00http://www.ebay.com/itm/LCD-Display-Touch-Screen-Digitizer-Assembly-Replacement-For-Asus-Google-Nexus-7-/400556034113?pt=Other_Tablet_eReader_Accessories&var=&hash=item5d43000841
if it were me, I would replace the touch screen assembly.
