- Flag as inappropriate Answer (Can this display power the new 16" MacBook Pro without using the 96 Watt Adapter?)
I was hoping I could use one of the USB-C ports to run an external HD for my time machine backup. Sadly, my external drive is not mounting. However, when I plug in a USB-C flash drive, it does mount.
Please could Apple explain how using an external monitor with a MacBook pro laptop actually works ?
The 13" MacBook's GPU puts out a max pixel count of 2560 x 1600. The LG 5K monitor is displaying 5120 x 2880 pixels. Is the pixel output of a MacBook "stretched" by interpolation to fill the larger 5K screen of the monitor ?
In other words, if I had a digital photo that was originally 5120 x 2880 pixels, and used the MacBook pro and external monitor setup, would my photo be downsampled to 2560 x 1600, then interpolated back up to 5120 x 1600 ? i.e. every other pixel was replaced from the original photo ?
That's not how displays work. The display on your computer has no affect on the external monitor. They are entirely separate. The computer recognizes each screen individually and treats them differently. There is no scaling between the screens.
I purchased both from Apple store and cannot seem to get it to work. Using a HDMI from Apple TV to USB-C cable to the display
I've bought a USB-C to 3.5mm jack adapter, but I don't seem to be getting any output through the external speakers I've connected. Audio keeps coming out of the monitor only

No it can't, it only supports landscape orientation.
The camera resolution is 1920x1080.
Does this monitor work with the Apple iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, Late 2015) iMac17,1?
I get only 2560 x 1440. I have "Apple iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, Late 2015) iMac17,1" I would like a better resolution but i 'can't get more with this configuration.
Yes, the Apple TB3/TB2 adapter is bi-drectional.
For details see, Apple support article, HT210205 - Use the LG UltraFine 5K Display with your Mac or iPad Pro.
That is, if I plug an ethernet to a usb-c adapter that plugs into back of the monitor and plug the MacBook Pro into the monitor with usb-c will the ethernet pass through the monitor to the laptop? Rather than having to manually connect the ethernet each time?
The other answer is wrong, it does support pass through ethernet, aka if you plug your computer into the monitor and connecting ethernet adapter directly to the monitor or through a hub with ethernet works perfectly.
Yes with newer iPad Pros with USB C.
It will only be 4K resolution, however.
