About the Mac:
Mac OS Mojave Version 10.14.4 (18E226) MacBook Air (13-inch, 2017)
I wish to connect two external monitors with following specifications with my Apple device.
one pure HDMI other VGA (converted to HDMI using a VGA to HDMI Adapter)
My device has one mini-display port. I have bought a (not an apple product) 3-in-1 mini-display port to (DVI, HDMI, VGA) adapter.
I have two options to connect.
1. Connect pure HDMI, VGA based monitors into one 3-in-1 mini-display port adapter. (FAILS!) 2. Connect the pure 3-in-1 Adapter to a splitter (another device that accepts one HDMI input and spilts into 4 HDMI outputs) using HDMI cable and then connect the two monitors using HDMI outputs. (WORKS!)
The second method is able to connect two monitors but my Apple device shows only one device connected in
Display Settings and the two external monitors mirror each other but I want a chain display.
