I have a mid-2012 model MacBook Pro, with the following ports:
- 1 ethernet
- 1 FireWire 800
- 2 USB 3.0
(I have to use my Thunderbolt port for an external SSD, so that port is occupied.)
However, my CinemaHD monitor connects currently into the Thunderbolt port as well, with a DVI-d to Thunderbolt adapter.
I've been searching for awhile for a solution without any luck. Essentially, I need either a cheap Thunderbolt splitter (I don't think these exist...?) or a way to adapt my DVI-d male plugin to a female FireWire 800 or USB port (and have that allow my MBP to recognize my external display).
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
