can i connect macbook pro to two monitors - Apple
9 Mar In situations where your Mac possesses an HDMI port, you can leverage the HDMI standard to connect a second display. Worth noting, too, is the fact Apple New MacBook Pro Retina models, both 13" and 15" versions, support using the built-in display and two external displays. The built-in display can. Assuming you do not have 2 thunderbolt displays to daisy chain, it is still very much possible to connect to two regular HDMI monitors. To accomplish this, you will need the following: 1. 1 HDMI to Mini-Displayport cable (AmazonBasics Mini Display. If you have a MacBook Pro with Retina display you can use the HDMI cable or the Mini Displayport to connect one monitor and use the Thunderbolt to VGHA connector to connect a second monitor. This setup allows you to mirror three screens OR use them all independently (you will get higher res if you.
I just tried connecting them with a HDMI Splitter, but it only shows the same content on both monitors. I just found out, that a single HDMI cable can only show content for one monitor or split the same content to two monitors.
So that just failed hard. But the only option is to then have two adapter connected at the same time, to get use of both my monitors? I've tried to search for similar answers but could not find anything. Also I have a HDMI splitter, which just simply displays the same content on both monitors, so that was little to none help.

Thanks for the reply.
If you find yourself using two displays -- one connected via Mini DisplayPort Thunderbolt and another connected via a USB adapter, for example -- it's easy to forget which display is which as usually there effectively is no difference. Also add the comment above so that all relevant info is contained in the question. I think I've got a better picture of the situation. Consequently, these adapters do not work well with gaming or other applications that place a great deal of emphasis on graphics performance such as video playback or video editing. Rather than limit yourself to the display your Mac came with, you can extend your screen space by plugging in a click display.
I think I've got a better picture of the situation. Seems like I just will end up buying one more adapter.
The docks seem to be quite expensive compared to the adapters.
NewMacBookProOwner yes it's a more elegant solution but also quite a bit more expensive. You may also connect one of your display to an AppleTV and connect to it wirelessly. Again, this is a expensive solution as well. Sign up or log in Sign up using Google. Sign up using Facebook. Sign up using Email and Password. Post as a guest Name.
I have, and could not find any answer to my question. That just outputs the exact same content on both screen. The Mini DisplayPort can be plugged in to the Mac's Thunderbolt port to enable physically connecting the second display. If your adapter is not made by Apple that might just be the issue here. However, for users who need two or more external displays on a MacBook, MacBook Air, or pre-Retina Display MacBook Pro and find the lag time demonstrated above to be unacceptable those interested in gaming, video playback, or video editing, for examplebut who do not want to consider a Retina Display MacBook Pro perhaps because they find the relative lack of internal upgrade options a major disadvantage of upgradingthis alternate option remains well worth consideration, too.
