  • Hi Erin,

    That's true, this Mini Dock allows for 2 HDMI monitors. They can both be independent and mirrored, depending on your preference.

  • Yes, the monitor can be independent (extended) if you Mac supports it.
    Using a MacBook Pro 16 (2019) and the CalDigit Thunderbolt 3 Mini Dock (Dual HDMI version) I was able to display at the same time:
    - Safari on a 27" Samsung screen, full HD, using HDMI cable
    - Play a TV show on my Samsung SmartTV, full HD, using HDMI cable (I don't have the Apple TV device. I was using the Apple TV app running on the Mac). The subtitles worked, and the sound was displayed on the TV.
    - Pages on the MacBook Pro screen

    How to do it:
    - Plug the dock into the Thunderbolt 3 port of the Mac
    - Plug the HDMI from the screen into the dock: It is going to do mirroring automatically after a few seconds
    - Go to Apple menu / System Preferences / Displays
    - Go to Arrangement tab
    - Uncheck "Mirror Displays"
    - Move the blue rectangles representing the screens so it matches your actual setup
    - Move the white menu bar to the other screen if needed
    - Plug an additional screen if you wish and move it to match your actual setup if needed

    - For the sound to be played by the TV instead of the MacBook Pro speakers: Click on the top-right speaker icon and select the TV as output device
