    Hi,

    I want to connect 2 monitors to my mbp retina 2015. My two monitors do not have thunderbolt ports, just dvi, displayport and hdmi. The mbp just have a hdmi port. So, how can i connect the other monitor to the mbp?

    I have seen there are thunderbolt to hdmi convertors, but dont know if there is any lost in the conversion.

    Could anyone with experience on this being some information on this?

    Cheers

    Hi,

    You would use an adapter like you have mentioned. You can get a Thunderbolt male to HDMI female cable that will allow you to then use a standard HDMI cable between the monitor and the adapter. I'm not sure if you are asking if the quality will be affected or not, but it should be read as a HDMI input. I have a DVI cable plugged into a DVI/HDMI adapter and it reads the input to the monitor as DVI.

    I hope this helps.

    Thanks for the answer. I have a hdmi to dvi cable too and it does its work pretty well. The conversion does not loose quality. But dont know if the same happens using a thunderbolt to hdmi convertor.

    I am not sure to be honest, I doubt it but hopefully someone can comment specifically.
