Hi mgmcc, Thank you for getting in touch. I am using a Macbook pro 2011, which has 1 Thunderbolt port. Ideally I need two Thunderbolt ports, one for A 'Focusrite Clarrett 8Pre' Audio interface and the other for a Tv/Monitor. Surely should be possible to have an extension or adapter? I think i have seen one online.
I have looked at Thunderbolt docks in the past (I use one to provide USB 3 with a MacMini that only has USB 2 ports) but they tend only to have two Thunderbolt ports - one to connect to the Mac and the second to connect a peripheral. Thus you are no further forward. Thunderbolt technology does support "daisychaining" but I think this means that your peripheral device needs to have two ports - a second one to connect to the next device in the chain.
A thunderbolt dock would give you an HDMI port for the video as well as a Thunderbolt port for your audio device. Would that resolve the problem? You could also get an HDMI to Display Port cable if necessary.
A thunderbolt dock would solve my quest. I was just hoping there was a cheaper solution as I have not seen one for under £100. I really appreciate you giving your time to help me with this. I think I will have to purchase a Thunderbolt dock at some point. All the best to you I hope others treat you with the same kindness.
