2016 Macbookl pro to 2 DVI-D monitors using only 1 port of the laptop


I would like to connect my 2016 macbook pro 15 inch with 2 displays. These 2 displays both have a DVI-D male port. I currently use these two displays with a desktop computer by connecting them both to only 1 DVI port of the desktop. To do so, I use a DVI splitter adapter so that I can connect both displays using only 1 DVI port of the computer.

Can I connect both monitors using only one port of the computer? Is there a USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 to dvi-d converver that supports a dvi splitter adapter so that I can connect both displays using only one port of my laptop? Thanks


Hi Marco,

Thanks for posting!

While we don’t have a product that is compatible with your Mac that meets your requirement of only using one cable, you could use two of our USBC-DVI adapters (http://plugable.com/products/usbc-dvi/) to connect both of your DVI displays to the Thunderbolt 3/USB-C ports of your system.

As an alternative, you could use our UD-CA1 docking station (http://plugable.com/products/ud-ca1/) to connect your first display, and the dock also has the ability to charge your system and provides for additional USB ports and wired Ethernet. Our dock has a single HDMI output, but you can convert that easily to DVI with an inexpensive (purchased separately) HDMI to DVI cable like this -> http://amazon.com/dp/B014I8UQJYYou could then use one of our USBC-DVI adapters (http://plugable.com/products/usbc-dvi/) directly connected to the second port of your Mac to add the second display.

Please let us know if that information helps!
