Thunderbolt 3 and Ultrastudio Mini Monitor

PostMon Feb 05, 2018 4:24 pm

Hello, All,
My church has a brand new iMac running ProPresenter. I want to use the Mini Monitor to get SDI and HDMI video to my BMD Switcher and 12x12 router.

The new iMac has only Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) connectors and USB A . I got an Apple TB3 to TB2 adapter and an Apple Thunderbolt 2 cable to go from the iMac to the Mini Monitor and downloaded the latest software from BMD.

The BMD software and driver sees the Mini Monitor, but I get no output. I tried several settings and a previous driver, including the one on the SD card. I also tried a different Mini Monitor. Still no success.

Am I missing something? I ended up using 2 USBC to HDMI adapters. Not ideal, but it worked for now.

I think the problem is with the adapter. Does anyone know of an adapter that worked?

Thanks
