Your input to this thread has been excellent, thanks terraphantm!!!
Wonder if anyone has sent feedback to Apple about limiting the hardware through their software? As this doesn't affect their Thunderbolt display, I imagine if this is not deliberate on Apple's part, they don't have much incentive to fix it. If HDMI worked, I could use a £380 2560x1440 27" IPS Asus and still leave my TB port free without restricting me to pass-through only accessories...
