Solved it! I had to plug the adapter into my non-retina MacBook Pro, then hit the Auto button on the monitor. It readjusted itself and moved the image back to the center of the screen. Now it's plugged back into my retina MacBook Pro and working perfectly. So I guess it's some kind of weird issue between the retina MacBook Pro specifically and the monitor, ...

My Acer monitor lost the red color before. I found no answer to the problem. One day I wiggled the cable and the red color came back. The same problem and remedy repeated many time. Today I tried to move the cable to different directions without result. I guess I have exhausted the possible directions. But if you have not tried this, it may work for you. ...

I have had problems with third party video adaptors, so I'd be hesitant to try that. Since your monitors have DVI ports, I'd go with two Apple Mini Display Port to DVI adaptors and use an HDMI cable for the third monitor.

10.9.4 purports to fix sleep-wake issues. I know on my rMBP (pre-Haswell) I'd have a similar issue after disconnecting from a Thunderbolt display, and it's been resolved since upgrading.

This is a bit of a loaded question. Though your title refers to Thunderbolt the question solely references display daisychaining, so that's the aspect I'll try to address. Hardware wise: Thunderbolt 1 Apple devices have the ability to daisy chain Thunderbolt Displays but it seems that this is an Apple derived solution as TB 1 uses the DisplayPort 1.1 spec ...

You want to connect two DVI monitors to one Thunderbolt port? Here you go: Mini Displayport to 2x DVI adapter offered by Matrox. Was searching for an adapter like this some months ago and this seems to be the best solution. I didn't tested it but it got 4 / 5 stars at Amazon. Maybe worth a try?

I had issues trying to use a HP Z30i with 2560 x 1600 resolution.

So it turns out that the Macbook wasn't working with a 4k monitor and a non-4K monitor both plugged into displayports. When I plugged the non-4k monitor into my HDMI port, it worked, albeit at a less-than-ideal resolution.

If you have an Apple Thunderbolt Display, then you don't need a dock at all. You simply plug the display into one of the Thunderbolt ports of the Mac, and use the display as the dock. It has lots of ports on the back - including several USB ports, a gigabit Ethernet port, another Thunderbolt port, etc. You can plug another Thunderbolt display ...
