Hey guys!

This is just something that has been bothering me for a long time...

So, OSX has this issue where, even on a REAL macbook, you can't daisychain displays or use any adapters with multiple video outputs. The only possible way I was able to get two screens connected to my 2013 MBP (which I already sold) was to use either HDMI and DP or both DP ports, Adapters with two outputs always mirrored screens, not extend.

Currently I am on my Razer Blade Hackintosh, which has a fully working USB-C Port. I've bought this adapter from Amazon: https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B07FJLYZJC/?tag=tonymacx8603-21

So... It also only mirrors, but why is that? Is there a technical answer to why OSX is just that useless when it comes to multiple screen setups? Like, that adapter works fine on windows...

Maybe this is just fixable with a kext or some tools I can download, idk, the guys over at apple should have added that feature a LONG time ago.

Curious to see if someone has experience with this kind of issue, since it's not really hackintosh-related but a general OSX flaw.
