Is it possible to connect 2 HDMI displays to this dock?
My current setup is a MacBook Pro Retina (late 2013) which I connect to 2 HDMI displays using the MacBook HDMI port for one, a mini-display port to HDMI adapter for the other one. The dock has the same connectors so will this work with the dock? A second question, the dock has an hdmi port and the MacBook pro would have an HDMI port as well, so could I use both HDMI ports to connect to 2 HDMi displays?

"For dual display, at least one (1) display has to be Thunderbolt or Thunderbolt 2 technology. For displays that are not Thunderbolt technology ready, Thunderbolt port is backwards compatible with Mini DisplayPort and dock supports either HDMI or Mini DisplayPort but not both."
You can use your Existing HDMI port on the Mac, plus the HDMI port on the Belkin.
You can only use two monitors on the Belkin if one of them is a Thunderbolt native monitor.
If you use your MiniDisplayPort adapter on the Thunderbolt port, the HDMI port on the Belkin cannot be used.
