    I have the 2016 15" TB MBP hooked up to a Dell U3415W via HDMI and the Apple USB Multiport Adapter. The power cable is connected to the Multiport Adapter as well.

    Once in awhile, the screen will go black for a second and then go back to normal.

    Anyone else experiencing something like this with their MacBooks and monitors?

    I have a 13" TB with the same monitor. I'm using DP through a Kensington dock. I get an occasional split second flicker, maybe once or twice a day. I might have experienced it going black, but I don't think it's happened in awhile. Sorry I don't have the exact same setup. But I always figured the problem was with the dock and not the MBP or monitor. Haven't noticed anything at all since the update, but it's only been a day.

    There was a thread with a lot of people with this issue also. Look in the forums. Seems something normal.
