I've got an Early 2011 15"MBP (no video problems yet) that I have connected to a Thunderbolt Display. I used to have it connected to a 22" widescreen VGA monitor. I'd like to use both external displays. (I know the VGA is only SD while the TBD is HD)
Does anyone know of a TB adapter, dongle or dock that has the ability to connect both a TB display AND a VGA monitor to it? I'd like to do this on the cheap and know that I can do it with a USB dongle, but I'd rather NOT go that route. I'd like to split the video signal if possible.
Is there a MDP to VGA adapter with a TB pass-thru or some other dongle that might do the trick? I tried asking this question at support.apple.com, but no one has answered the question yet.
Just as a quick aside, has anyone tried plugging a mini-display port to VGA adapter into the TB port on the TB display? Could THAT get this done?
Thanks to any and all for reading and replying!
