    If I was to buy a Thunderbolt v1 - HDMI adapter and a HDMI - USB adapter, would it pass data correctly, seeing as HDMI is a video standard?

    To explain why it's no, the adapters are not bidirectional.

    One converts Thunderbolt -> HDMI.
    The other converts USB -> HDMI

    Neither one will work backwards.
