I also ended up looking for good solutions. Thunderbolt 2 supports 20 Gb/s. So it could provide enough reserves for a real usb 3 hub where every port could finally run 5 Gb/s = 640 MB/s. As a single SSD already exceeds the speed of a USB 3 connection, we should not put them through a USB 3 Hub bottleneck to not enforce slowing the transfer rates down. ...

So the final answer on this, supported by links in comments and answers above is that the documentation says clearly there are only two possible ways to achieve what you are looking for. Either you daisy chain thunderbolt displays (obviously doesn't work for you). Or an hdmi and a true Thunderbolt Display. The first of those two possibilities is spelled ...

What you need is a Displayport/DVI/VGA port and a displayport/thunderbolt port and since it seems you don't have a Mac with a second Thunderbolt port you will need to get something that will give you two Thunderbolt ports. Once the question is framed that way (?) then it seems to me that the choice is one of the Thunderbolt "docks" that are often sold as a ...

To the best of my knowledge a 'Thunderbolt to twin VGA' adapter does not exist. I think what The Projector Company are suggesting are the Matrox DualHead2Go adapter boxes. The premise of these adapters is they connect to two displays (or projectors) and present a single connection to the computer. They present the two displays as a single super-wide display ...

From http://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204154 How many Apple Thunderbolt Displays can I use with a Mac in Windows 7 or 8 with Boot Camp? Most Mac computers can support one Thunderbolt display using Windows. The iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, Late 2014) and Mac mini (Late 2014) can support two, and the Mac Pro (Late 2013) can support up to six.

Is your MacBook a late 2013 or mid 2014 (Thunderbolt 2)? If not, there is no chance to support DisplayPort MST (Multi Stream) which allows you to daisy-chain two of the Dells. The late 2013 and mid 2014 macbook pros have thunderbolt 2 with DisplayPort 1.2 (Thunderbolt 2), all the other macbook pros with retina just have DP 1.1 (Thunderbolt 1) which does not ...

Same thing happened to me. You have to manually change it in System Preferences > Sound > Output Volume.

I had this problem fixed by Apple. Phone support claimed they could only help me with software problems. I didn't try to get through to the Customer Relations. Instead I tried visiting another Apple Store, where they were happy to fix the problem within warranty. This is a costly repair to pay yourself, as the whole "logic board" has to be replaced. ...

Each Firewire controller will be treated independently by OS X, and each controller will have its bandwidth set by the slowest device connected. So you could daisychain your devices but will only see 400Mb/s throughput, requiring you to use separate Firewire adapters if you wish to see your OWC drive running at full speed.

I was in that situation some time ago. The only way that seems to work without issuing the shortcut with Apple keyboard I found was this in Logitech forums. I have successfully implemented what I believe is a reasonable workaround. Here's what I did... Purchased and installed Keyboard Maestro from Stairways Software. Within Keyboard Maestro I ...

Thunderbolt is an active technology, Display Port is passive. To daisy-chain, you must use Thunderbolt to Thunderbolt. You cannot daisy-chain Display Port. Your solution may be to find a 3rd party Thunderbolt -> dual Display Port box, but it's not something I've investigated, personally. Google gives this for starters.
