So I have 2 external monitors; One is hdmi, the other is DisplayPort.
I have a MBP mid-2014 model which contains 2 Thunderbolt 2 ports as well as an HDMI port.
Theoretically I would have thought I could plug in two miniDP to HDMI cables, run one to monitor #1, and run the second one to an HDMI to DisplayPort adapter -> monitor #2.
That did not work, and I since realized only one of the miniDP ports can support video at a time.
I then read running an HDMI and a miniDP at the same time would work, so I tried that, miniDP->HDMI monitor #1, and then HDMI->HDMI to DP adapter -> monitor #2. Still does not work. Only one monitor shows video.
For the life of me, I cannot figure out why this is so difficult to do. I have seen others use USB adapters but would prefer not to sacrifice any CPU usage with the second display.
What possible options do I have for using my 2 external monitors in extended view?
Thank you for any help!
