Hi. I am looking to order two 2560x1440 monitors, which both support DisplayPort 1.2 MST (i.e. daisy chaining). I hope to pair these with my current 1920x1200 monitor via MST. However, this older monitor does not support DP at all.
Given that I hope to hook all three of these displays to a laptop DisplayPort output over USB-C (with a USB-C to DP cable connecting the laptop with the first monitor), and there aren’t any other video output ports on the laptop, am I able to use an active DP to HDMI converter to connect the last monitor to the chain? The converter would be from the 2nd monitor’s DP out, in order to connect to HDMI in on the last monitor.
The converter in question is http://plugable.com/products/dp-hdmi/.
