I can confirm  with the setup I mentioned above,  most issues were fixed for me  black screen of death, as well as  computer not waking up,   and yes   egpu  connected directly to my TV through  HDMI,

 

I know am just started running an active  DP 1.4 to HDMI 2.0 adapter to try and get better  video, and  found some other issues  but those are for a different thread

I have a mid 2011 iMac. I have recently upgraded to SSD and added 16GB of Ram. I am unable to install Catalina. If I get a compatible eGPU, will I be able to install Catalina? Will the process be complex?

@Wangya, Not worth it to install Catalina through workarounds imo.

Has anyone tried the new MacOS 10.15.5 beta? Has there been any improvements that can be gleamed so far?
