Need Help: Unable to get GTX1080TI to show up on Display Overview

Hi, I am using the Akitio Node with Macbook Pro 15' 2016 and the GTX1080 Ti. I have tried the following:

1. Running csrutil disable

2. Rebooting in safe mode to install automate 1.01 script

3. Uninstalling - Installing automate 1.0.1 script

4. Changing primary display to external display

Unfortunately, I have not been able to get the EGPU working. My external monitor is connected via HDMI to the USB C port. Would really appreciate any help to get this working!

 

Here are some screenshots:

Very strange, your screen captures show that the driver is loaded, because MacOS see the 3D card

The display need to be connected directly to the graphic card

usbc node to usbc mbp 2016 for tb3 connection 

then hdmi or dvi from the graphic card to the display

 You just made a mistake from the node CG to the display connector 

your computer seems ok regarding NVidia drivers

Nothing strange. Your monitor is connected to the Radeon Pro 460 as the screenshot shows. Your eGPU works properly.

You're right ... I didn't see that

but I don't understand the need for an hdmi to usbc cable ?

His monitor has a HDMI port. A HDMI-HDMI cable would be a better choice for gaming.

Ok... but hdmi from the CG to the hdmi of the monitor 

I don't see where the usbc to hdmi cable fit ?

the MBP has 4 usbc ports, the node has one and I doubt that the CG or the monitor have an usbc port ???

MBP's USB-C -> Dell HDMI. It should be eGPU HDMI -> Dell HDMI.

Thank you so much! I finally understand now (been connecting the monitor directly to my mac). Will try to purchase a HDMI-HDMI cable asap. Cheers
