    HDMI broken

    • Written by from CHELMSFORD

    The HDMI port does not work. So my external monitor will not turn on. I can get it to work perfect with a display port to mini display port cable plugged from monitor to dock, dock plugged to laptop. Even outputs at 2560x1440 but then I lose the spare thunderbolt port. Reason I bought this device over other company's was the HDMI 1.4 port. I would say if your buying for HDMI please try in the store before you buy. I might be unlucky and have a broken port but I have been in contact with elgato customer services for over 2 weeks now and they can't help...
    Very disappointed in this product. save your money......

    One of the thunderbolts is needed for connecting to main computer??

    I bought this dock because MacBook air only has one thunderbolt. A £180 investment for getting only one extra thunderbolt port (actually, I think this is a complete failure in design of Apple). But the surprise is that one of the thunderbolt ports is needed to connect to the computer. At the end I am again with only one thunderbolt port. Very good joke Apple+elgato.
