I have a USB-C hub (link to it on amazon is here). At the moment I have a setup of: Mouse and keyboard, hard drives, power cable and one monitor through HDMI into that USB-C hub and have had no troubles.
However, I have a two monitor setup and when I use my MacBook pro I only use one monitor - I'd like to use the second one as a extend feature, so I have two screens available NOT DUPLICATE SCREENS.
This USB-C hub only has one HDMI port available (I'd prefer not to buy a new hub) and so I was just wondering if I got a HDMI splitter similar to this and plug that into the one HDMI port on my Hub and have two HDMI cables going from my two monitors, would that work?
I'm wondering this as it would be a lot of stress on one thunderbolt port on my Macbook, surely, let alone splitting HDMI signals?
If that won't work, if I have one HDMI port going from my hub to one monitor and have a USB-C cable to HDMI from another USB-C port on my Mac and have that go to the second monitor, would that be more feasible?
