I am curious if a setup as such will allow me to switch between a thunderbolt display and my HDTV:
Macbook Air > Thunderbolt Display > [ Some thunderbolt device, e.g. Lacie SSD ] > HDTV (via a Thunderbolt to HDMI adaptor)
These facts I already know:
1) That the thunderbolt controller in Macbook Air will only support 1 external display
2) That even for Macbook Pros where 2 displays are supported, a second non-thunderbolt display can only be connected at the end of the daisy chain behind another thunderbolt device for it to work
I know the MBA will only support one external display, question is, can I choose which I want to activate - the Thunderbolt display, or the HDTV - in the Mac OS display settings? I DO NOT need both active at the same time, will only use one at a time so am happy to switch between.
OR will such a setup not work outright - i.e. Mac OS will not see/list my HDTV.
Ideas anyone?- whether I get a Macbook Air or a Macbook Pro all hinges on the answer to this question.. thanks in advance!!
