Can I use an HDMI splitter to extend not duplicate my laptop screen across two monitors?
A reader asks: Can I use an HDMI splitter to extend, not duplicate, my laptop screen across two monitors? A: Nope. An electronics splitter (audio or video) takes a single signal and splits it into two identical signals.
Is USB C the same as Thunderbolt?
Best answer: USB-C and Thunderbolt may use the same port, but they are by no means the same connector. There are some key differences that prevent most Thunderbolt 3 products from connecting to USB-C ports.
How do I connect 2 external monitors to a laptop?
Use an adapter, such as an HDMI to DVI adapter. This works if you have two different ports for your laptop and your monitor. Use a switch splitter, such as a Display splitter to have two HDMI ports. This works if you have only one HDMI port on your laptop but you need two HDMI ports.
Can a MacBook run two external monitors?
Under “Graphics and Video Support” (or similar), you should see something like, “Simultaneously supports full native resolution on the built-in display, and up to 2560 by 1600 pixels on up to two external displays.” Recent MacBook Pro models can support four external displays at 4K, or two at 5K.
Can I have dual monitors with only one HDMI port?
HDMI does not have the ability to send two different display streams through the same cable, so there is no device that you can connect to an HDMI port that will provide you with multi-monitor capability. The splitter, as the name implies, will just send the same signal to the two monitors.
