    Hi guys,

    Question about daisy chaining .....

    I am just about to buy a thunderbolt display and I already have a 24 inch ACD. Can I daisy chain out of the thunderbolt display in the cinema display?
    I've looked on eBay and the cinema display's haven't held their value that well so I may as well keep it for some extra desktop space.

    Thanks for any help.

    In an ethereal plane of existence.
    Unfortunately, no, you can't attach a cinema display to a thunderbolt display.

    I believe that yes, you can do this ONLY if you have another Thunderbolt device between the two, like a Thunderbolt hard drive. See the bottom update on THIS article.

    Yes, the cheapest TB device that you cau use for this currently is the Lacie eSATA hub.
