I know, I have been real busy with work and this whole covid ordeal, my country has severely implemented rules for social distancing and I eventually have more real life work than usual, so less time to post here.
Tbh I have not experienced this with TB displays, I do not own one. I can tell you that I have tried several other devices included an Apollo x8, Apollo twin, TB1 HDD with TB3 adapter, a Razer Core X eGPU I own and Thunderbolt external drive to a MacBook Pro 16,1 over TB3 with no issues.
I have to say that I first had to connect the eGPU on cold boot to be recognized correctly, then I could just HotPlug no probs.
Have you set the SSDT correctly with DROM parameters and so? What can you see on port7 for TB on device tree (use ioreg)? Can you show a screen capture of your Thunderbolt section in system profiler?
I'm always happy when I get your answer. After looking at the guide, I created a unique number for the DROM and entered it into the SSDT after CRC-8 Check-sum. All the other Thunderbolt features, including hotplug, work surprisingly well. However, it does not seem to be able to receive two Displayport inputs and convert them to 5k with one Thunderbolt output terminal. I am using LG 34WK95U 5K monitor 5140x2160 resolution. Currently, it does not function, so I use SwitchResX to force it to use 5140x2160 45Hz. If you have time, please find a way to use the better Thunderbolt.
