I know this is concerning hooking several Apple monitors to a MacBook Pro, but my nMP is broken, and I am having to use my MacBook Pro for now:)

I am hooking up an Apple Thunderbolt Display AND an Apple Displayport Display to my MacBook Pro (including USB from the ACD). I also have the external Apple keyboard connected. The MBP screen is main, the ATD is 2nd, and the ACD is 3rd.

When I press F1/F2, that controls brightness on the on the ATD, and CTRL-F1/F2 the brightness on the MBP. What is the keycombo for the ACD:confused:

What do you mean? You can supposedly connect up to 6 displays to a Mac Pro, so Apple must have provided a solution for this...

I don't think they did. Use the System Preferences->Displays brightness setting.

Try connecting the displayport first and by itself, adjust. Then hook up the thunderbolt and adjust

:) That would be a typical Windows solution, not a suave Apple solution. Does someone know of an App?
