I've put the failure down to a miniport/thunderbolt monitor taking a dislike to an HDMI feed
on 27 May 2015
Cables arrived today, packed well and the usual 'neet' quality of product.
I wanted to plug two mini macs into an HDMI switch and output to a thunderbolt display.
The switches inputs and outputs are all HDMI so i plugged in an HDMI to miniport cable into the monitor.
With both macs plugged in and on, neither mac output to my monitor.
This was disappointing because the research i made beforehand led me to believe HDMI to Thunderbolt/miniport was a doable config.
I've put the failure down to a miniport/thunderbolt monitor taking a dislike to an HDMI feed, because when i swapped it out for a samsung LED monitor, all worked as expected.
I've simply marked down the scores out of frustration, despite claims it would work, these products failed to meet my specific requirement.
However, to close on a positive, they did work seamlessly on a Samsung LED monitor.
