Hi eGUP'ers,

 

My setup looks like this now

I made an impulsive decision during this black friday and got a LG 32GK850F-B 32" monitor. Now having struggle connecting it through my eGPU since there is only one TB output on the enclosure. For timebeing I have connected the new monitor directly to the MacMini skipping the eGPU. I have 3 more DP on my GFX unused and is there any way i can connect my second monitor to the eGPU ?

According to the specifications of the monitor, it has Displayport input: https://www.lg.com/us/monitors/lg-34GK950F-B-gaming-monitor

So just connect the display to the eGPU using a Displayport cable.

Thanks @mac_editor, its weird. It was not working earlier but works now.

The issue is when you have the new monitor connected while booting the signal is not getting to either of the monitors. But when I disconnect the second monitor, boot in and connect the second monitor it all works.

Is there a resolution for this ?

Neither the 34GK950F nor the 32GK850F have a Thunderbolt input, so I don't know what you're talking about.

The one TB output on the enclosure connects to the computer with a Thunderbolt 3 cable. The displays are connected to the GPU in the eGPU with DisplayPort cables.

-- Merged --

Try switching the ports on the GPU so that the second monitor is connected where the first monitor was?

Turn off the second display while booting, then turn it on when you're done booting?

Reset NVRAM and SMC. Connect both monitors to eGPU via Displayport.
