Hi @blazinsmokey. Your intuition was right, SSDT-TB3-V1.aml is conflicting with other ports.That is actually how TB works from what I've heard, don't have a TB dock myself sorry. Has to be plugged in during boot and can't be hot plugged or unplugged. USB-C hot plugs fine. Keep in mind this is the same port but 2 different protocols.
Doing well thanks for asking. What kind of dongle is this? Can you test that dongle on a real Mac by chance? Maybe the dongle isn't macOS compliant. Also you could try, sounds crazy but try inserting the USB C the other way. Also try it just as USB dock see if it works when no HDMI is in use. I don't believe an addition SSDT would help this but we might need to look into the current ones. My guess is the TB SSDT we incorporated could be messing with this.
I removed SSDT-TB3-V1.aml from ACPI/Patched folder
And after reboot, both of my usb-c/usb3/Hdmi worked.
I used two dock models for testing: the D6000 dock from dell and a cheap chinese adapter the Mixsen/WBPINE USB C Hub HDMI 5-in-1 Multiport Adapter with 4K 60HZ (see pics attached for those interested).
On both, all USB 3 ports and HDMI@60Hz worked hotplugged after SSDT-TB3-V1.aml removal from EFI.
I don't use TB yet but this could be a problem for those who need it in such configuration.
