    I have a late model 2011 MacBook Pro with a Thunderbolt display. Can I attach the ELO Touchscreen to it via DVI-Mini Display port from the back of the TB display, or will it only daisy-chain other TB displays? I've read online about it, but haven't seen my particular situation covered. Thanks!

    You can only attach a non-TB display to a TB if you have another TB peripheral in between.

    ok...

    So my chain goes like this...
    Macbook Pro with Thuderbolt port ---> 27" Thunderbolt Display ---> ELO Monitor DVI in from Thunderbolt output on TB display. Make sense? I'm trying to use a mini DP to DVI adapter out of the Thunderbolt display.

    Yeah, that won't work. You have to put something else between the Thunderbolt display and your ELO monitor. See THIS news article.
