Apologies if this seems to be a replica however (a) I’ve stumbled comparable posts and so they’ve gone both unanswered or archived-without-clarification and (b) comparable posts on r/macsetups indicated that it wasn’t the right subreddit.

At any charge, I am making an attempt to finalize a WFH (work-from-home) setup and I observed the the next description on the Technical Specifications for the MacBook Air:

Simultaneously helps full native decision on the built-in show at tens of millions of colours and:

* One exterior show with 5120-by-2880 decision at as much as 60Hz
* Up to 2 exterior shows with 4096-by-2304 decision at as much as 60Hz

I’ve tried to get this to work (see accompanying diagram) utilizing:

  • a typical, non-4K monitor utilizing a DisplayPort-to-USB-C cable going to one of many 2 USB-C ports on the MacBook Air

  • after which one other monitor (identical precise mannequin) utilizing a DisplayPort-to-HDMI cable going to an Aukey USB-C hub (which options USB-C energy pass-through) to the opposite obtainable USB-C port on the Air.

That state of affairs did not work. (I additionally tried a VGA-to-HDMI cable for the hub.)

So is it simply the hub that is the issue or am I misinterpreting the data from the Technical Specifications doc?

Thanks upfront!
