The free terminal tool I wrote, displayplacer, allows you to configure the "white bar" primary display via scripts/hotkeys. Configure your screens how you like, drag the "white bar" to your primary screen in the macOS system settings, and then execute displayplacer list. It will output the command to run to put your screens in their current configuration. ...

I wrote a tool called displayplacer that let's you describe your layout and re-apply that same layout. It will let you set up profiles for changing the resolution, rotation, and positioning of your monitors. For example, he's my 4 monitor setup profile. I have this command tied to a hotkey using BetterTouchTool. displayplacer "id:A46D2F5E-487B-CC69-C588-...

Check out the tool I wrote called displayplacer for setting monitor configurations via profiles. Since your goal is to treat the same model monitor differently you may need to use the contextual screen ids instead of persistent screen ids. Be sure to read the Notes section on GitHub for more info on this.

According to Apple's specifications on this MacBook Pro all four ports support video: Charging and Expansion Four Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) ports with support for: Charging DisplayPort Thunderbolt (up to 40 Gbps) USB 3.1 Gen 2 (up to 10 Gbps) If two of the ports are not supporting video you could look at the cabling (try another cable, etc.) and ...

In order to get this setup working, you'll want to get the following: 2 x Thunderbolt 3 to HDMI cable 1 x DisplayPort to HDMI adapter-cable 1 x USB-A to USB-C adapter You would connect the first monitor directly into the MacBook Pro using the Thunderbolt 3 to HDMI cable. The second monitor connects to the dock's Thunderbolt 3 connector using the ...

No. This will not work. You will need to get a display with its own power supply. Thunderbolt 1/2 doesn’t support power delivery. Even though Thunderbolt 3 does, connecting an adapter doesn’t magically make power appear. The (up-to) 9W of power is bus power - you can’t assume that because it’s there, it can be utilized, especially to power a device. ...

You can’t use three Thunderbolt 3 ports to drive three displays. You can accomplish this by connecting two Thunderbolt 3 to HDMI adapters/cables and one HDMI to HDMI/VGA/DVI adapter via the HDMI port. A couple of things to consider when connecting monitors: Use native signals rather than convert. Thunderbolt 3 is also DisplayPort, so it’s better to go ...

See https://www.apple.com/mac-mini/specs/ I think you're getting into trouble by trying to run a monitor at 75 Hz. Either lower the resolution or the refresh rate. Try 800x600@60. Once that's stable, step it up a notch until you know the limits. I would also be susipscious of the quality of your HDMI to VGA adapter/cable. Does your monitor have an HDMI ...

According to Apple Up to three displays: Two displays with 4096-by-2304 resolution at 60Hz connected via Thunderbolt 3 plus one display with 4096-by-2160 resolution at 60Hz connected via HDMI 2.0 [...] So it is important to not exceed the maximum resolution supported. Your 1080p Monitors seem to meet that spec so you will need to look at your ...

You need a Thunderbolt 3 dock - many exist. What you seem to be confused about is that they require a Thunderbolt 3 monitor - they don't. You can buy a simply cable to connect the Thunderbolt 3 port on the dock to the monitor via DisplayPort or mini-DisplayPort. I'm using the OWC 12-port Thunderbolt 3 dock for attaching dual-monitors to the MacBook Pro ...

Reading this guide may help you: How To: Run External Displays with your USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 MacBook It helped me a lot, although the guide is from a dockstation manufacturer, it's somehow neutral, and addresses in a practical way the different scenarios that we can face when we want to work with multiple screens in our MacBook Pro, either using a single ...

For the touch-bar 13" MBP the right side ports have reduced bandwidth, this could explain a portion of the difference in speed between the two modes. However, you will likely never see the full speed while running in TDM, that is because TDM runs as a UEFI application within the UEFI rom, this limits the resources that can be used in targeted disk mode. ...

If the external screen is flickering and blacking out after 3-5 sec, try going into System Preferences > Displays and change the settings for your external monitor. I solved mine by setting the Resolution to 1080p and Refresh rate to 60 Hertz. P.S. You can bring the display settings window of the monitor to your main display on the Mac by hitting 'Gather ...
