Apple beperkt MiniDisplayPort Multi Monitor
geplaatst: 12 november 2019 - 03:04
Apple beperkt het "daisy chaining" van meerdere MiniDisplayPort externe monitors tot slechts 2.
Ee 3de monitor zou je moeten aansluiten via HDMI.

Vroeger kon je méér dan 2 MiniDisplayPort/ Thunderbolt 2 monitors "Daisy Chainen", maar het schijnt dat de audio dan niet altijd kon volgen.

Apple schijnt hiermee het universele protocol van Thunderbolt Display/ Multi Stream MiniDisplayPort te breken met een eigen versie.

Nu zit je dus blijkbaar beperkt tot 2 MiniDisplayPort en 1 HDMI monitor.

Nu ja, lijkt me nog steeds genoeg, maar dat je het weet...

Méér Thunderbolt voodoo in de link:

Citaat
- Mac mini (Mid 2011): Two Thunderbolt displays. Mac mini with AMD graphics can support a HDMI compatible device on its HDMI port when using two Thunderbolt displays.

One other note of interest that will be a disappointment for some users is the disclosure that users will not be able to daisy chain a Mini DisplayPort display off an Apple Thunderbolt Display.
Mini DisplayPort displays will not light up if connected to the Thunderbolt port on an Apple Thunderbolt Display (27-inch).
The revelation is a bit of a surprise, as Mini DisplayPort displays can currently be daisy chained off other Thunderbolt peripherals. Some users had been hoping to reuse their existing Mini DisplayPort displays as part of multiple-monitor setups using the new Thunderbolt display, but will apparently be unable to do so.

Finally, Apple recommends that users daisy chaining the Apple Thunderbolt Display with Thunderbolt storage devices connect the display directly to the computer's Thunderbolt port, with other peripherals daisy chaining off of the display.

Update: Macworld appears to have demonstrated that you can indeed daisy chain a Mini DisplayPort monitor as long as it is connected to some other device than the Thunderbolt display. In Macworld's apparent setup, a Pegasus RAID storage device is placed between the Thunderbolt display and an older Mini DisplayPort display from Apple and all displays work properly.

It is unclear why simply inserting another Thunderbolt device into the middle of the chain allows the Mini DisplayPort display to function, but at least one MacRumors forum member has confirmed that he is unable to daisy chain his Mini DisplayPort-enabled Apple Cinema Display directly off of the new Thunderbolt display

Bugje?

If it ain't broke, don't fix it! Recycle the planet, we're gonna need it! And remember: an old Mac never dies, it just fades away into the Cloud - unless you don't want it to!
