    Hi guys, first post on here,

    So I currently have 2x USB-C to hdmi cords, which connect to my laptop directly, and work perfectly,
    (I have a Macbook Pro 2016 w/Touchbar btw)

    I currently have a Simplecon CH381, which does NOT provide the desired functionality..

    Instead I am looking for a solution where I can plug a single cord into my thunderbolt 3 port, to a hub that ideally has 2x USB-C ports that support video output, that I would be able to use with my existing usb-c to hdmi cables.

    Does something like this exist? in a dongle form?
    Or would I have to invest in something such as large dock or eGPU?

    Weird that the simplecon hub doesn't support video output, but I guess there's a lot of crappy hubs out there. There are quite a few usb-c hubs on Amazon that you take a look at. Unfortunately, I can't make any specific suggestions as a lot of them seem to be so-so quality. I don't think an eGPU is necessary for you though.

    Just out of curiosity, any reason why you don't just use the usb-c to hdmi cables directly?
