Hi,

I know how I can switch between GPU but how do I switch between internal and external display?
I can't get external display to work.
I'm using the automate-eGPU.sh script.

Thanks!

Could you give some additional information and clarify yourself please? What du you mean by switch?

I would like to use external display. Only Internal display seems to work. My external display says "No signal".

Could you please open System Profiler.app from the utilities folder and check if your GPU is listed over there (either as NVIDIA chipset model or as GTX 1080 Ti) and report back? 

Just to make sure: Did the script completed successfully including the launching the NVIDIA driver installer? 

Also remember that under macOS GPUs are not hot-plug compatible. They need to be plugged in (and tuned on) pre-boot.

Yes, The installation was successful. I noticed it's not hot pluggable when I had it on internal display. I know I have to reboot.

I can't get external display to work.
My external display says "No signal".
And the monitor works if I connect it with another PC/GPU. (Not eGPU)

Is it DP-DP or HDMI-HDMI? No adapters between? Check your monitor settings, try hot-plugging the monitor cable.

Ok, I have it working on another old monitor now. I can't get it working on my regular monitor. But I'm going to get a 4K monitor anyway. Just waiting for the release.
