PTs, Apollo 8, and Apple TV
 
I have an i7/16g MacBook Pro (15-inch, Mid 2012) and Apollo 8 running on Pro Tools 2018.4. I have only (1) thunderbolt port in my MBP, which left me without external display capability (UA Apollo 8 requires thunderbolt). I tried to use a USB 3.0 to HDMI adapter, but it caused problems. Question: Is it possible to mirror my MBP onto Apple TV and have no issues with PTs? Anyone else doing this? Thanks.

TB is a buss. You can loop through the interface to a display.

Drew,

Thanks. I was initially told that this will not work. However, I tried and it does! However, an issue will arise when I need to daisy chain my Apollo Twin. At that point, I guess I will need to purchase a TB docking station.

Again, thanks for the response.

Bryan

Just put the Twin last in the chain.
