Also in the category of "expensive solutions" falls this: Your MacBook Pro 2012 can drive two Thunderbolt Displays. You can buy the displays at Apple's store. The information on how many Thunderbolt displays are supported on any given Mac can be found in the Thunderbolt FAQ.

No, that 3-in-1 adapter will not drive multiple monitors. What you need is either a system that combines 2 monitors, or a system that chains them. While DisplayPort allows for daisy-chaining displays, this only works on supported hardware. This means your monitors need to both have two DisplayPort connectors and official support from the vendor and inside ...

I have found the solution to my problem. I've got an eight port USB hub by Akasa, self powered. I connected four controllers, a sound card and two liscenses to it, while I use an USB 3.0 hub for my external drives. Works like a charm.

I think the Caldigit Thunderbolt station is your best option. It has one Thunderbolt out and one HDMI out, that can be driven from 1 Thunderbolt connection on your MacBook. http://www.caldigit.com/thunderboltstation/

The Elgato only supports two devices (one in HDMI, second in Thunderbolt socket) if the second is a Thunderbolt monitor (i.e. a not displayport monitor)

So I figured this out, kind of. I cloned and built https://github.com/CdLbB/fb-rotate, and flipped the external monitor around a couple times with it. Suddenly everything works, even after a reboot. The only thing I can think of is that a config file somewhere got corrupted, and this utility rewrote it and fixed it. Either way, it works now!

There can be no such thing. Thunderbolt is an active technology, Display Port is passive. Adding the required circuitry to one end of such a cable would be pointless - it needs both ends to work. Edit: Now I read your question again… You have a Thunderbolt machine & a Display Port monitor… That's Thunderbolt to Display Port not Display Port to ...

I am trying to run 4 monitors to my MBP Mid 2014. Is the answer to this question accurate? How exactly can this be made to work?

From the link provided: Supports eSATA Transfer Speed up to 3Gbps Supports USB 2.0 Transfer Speed up to 480Mbps For the 3Gbps transfer speed you will need the StarTech 6-Feet Shielded External eSATA Cable M/M (ESATA6) and the Thunderbolt to eSATA adapter

http://www.matrox.com/graphics/en/products/gxm/dh2go/digital_me/ Something like this should work. Seeing how thunderbolt can support display port connections this would allow you to use multiple monitors while only using one port.

I took my December 2014 Retina MacBook Pro into the Apple Store with the problem but they couldn't reproduce it in the store and asked that I come back with a device that demonstrates the problem. That evening, I spent some time at the office and at home trying to reproduce the problem while capturing it on video. I was able to reproduce it with a DAS ...

According to Everymac This model supports a simultaneous maximum resolution up to 2560x1600 on two external displays via Thunderbolt. Alternately, it can support a single display up to 2560x1600 via Thunderbolt and a single 1080p display at up to 60 Hz, 3840x2160 at 30 Hz, or 4096x2160 at 24 Hz via HDMI. …so I'd say 'yes'.

While preparing for one last Time Machine backup, I found myself restarting both my old and my new laptop – and some combination of these things fixed the problem. I was able to restore from my old laptop overnight, and this answer is being posted from my new machine. If anybody has any further insight, I'd welcome it, but my problem is solved!
