I'm temporarily going blind in one eye, which makes things blurry, so I wanted a really big monitor. I bought a Wal-Mart Sceptre 43" 4k TV, but when I plugged it into the last place on my Thunderbolt daisy chain I got a horrible color cast - very pink - and there was no way to adjust the color to make it acceptable. But when I plugged the DisplayPort-to-HDMI ...

The USB cable is only for the ports in the back of the display. If you don't intend on using them, you don't need to plug it in. USB 2.0 has a max cable length limit of about 5 meters. You could get an extension cable that keeps you below that limit and it should make things work smoothly.

I think it has to do with the timing. Did you connect your Thunderbolt cable before or after your iMac reached the login screen? I do not know how target display mode is programmed, but I think all sound drivers on your iMac should be initiated first, before you connect the cable. So when sound is not working, my simple solution is: CmdF2 out of target ...

Doing some Internet research, I was able to find a couple people who used a simple adapter such as the 6in DisplayPort to Mini DisplayPort Video Cable Adapter that converted output from the DP to the MiniDP Please note ...

If I understand you correctly, what you are looking for is a video capture device. The way it works is video that is sent out from another source like a game console, DVD player, or even another computer it captured by this device and encoded to video. One that a client of mine has used and seemed to like very much is this one by Elgato Now, if you are ...

Attaching an external GPU to a MacBook Pro via Thunderbolt has been tested and tried, yes. The specific GTX 1080 has not ofcourse, as it hasn't been released yet. You will need the chassis. There's no way to connect the GPU over Thunderbolt without the chassis (or similar device - it doesn't actually have to be a metal box, but the electronics needs to be ...
