Mini Display Port Male to Male Cable vs Thunderbolt to Thunderbolt
Before I spend my money on expensive Thunderbolt cables. I want to use a machine to check another machines display, mirror the contents on a bigger screen.
I ask this question; has anyone successfully connected their MacBook Pro to iMac using a mini display port male to male cable ? (plugged into both thunderbolt ports on both machines) CMD + F2 ?
I know a Thunderbolt to Thunderbolt cable will do it, but they are stupidly overpriced!
Will the mini display port cable male to male do the job ?
Any downsides to using the mini display male to male cable ?
I know I could check the display using a mini display port cable to HDMI adapter and just connect direct to TV also.
Thanks for reading.
I bought an Apple Thunderbolt cable to connect Mac to Mac.
However I wouldn’t mind buying one of these Thunderbolt Mini Display port to HDMI cables. Just as a back up to connect a machine to HDMI port on a TV.
I’ve read a few reviews whereby audio is not present on some machines or visual picture isn’t very good.
Does anyone know if Apple do their own Thunderbolt Mini Display to HDMI cable or what’s the best after market cable that supports both audio and visual?
There’s too many cheap ones like this one for sale.
Ist dies eine gute Frage?
