    Needing to reduce cables at back of nMP. Hub would help get some TB2 cables away from the back.

    I`m having trouble finding options. Anyone know whats out or coming up?

    Not sure what you're asking for...

    If you're looking for a port expander - a Thunderbolt box that has USB, HDMI, eSATA, ethernet, audio, etc., then there are several options (Belkin, Caldigit, etc.).

    If you're looking for a Thunderbolt port multiplier - like you do with a USB hub - then you're out of luck. The TB protocol does not permit port multipiers.

    Does Thunderbolt protocol support a splitter cable? Ideally I'd like to have a cable where one end is TB and one end be split to USB and HDMI or DVI. I can't find any cable like this, so I assume it's not possible?
