I found a work around. It's not the best, but it is functional and good for my needs programing/reading etc. There is a small inconvenience with the displays switching monitors, but it only occurs when removing or adding a display after initial setup. All external monitors work in clamp-shell mode. and i have no mouse lag between monitors
1. Connect Display link to MB port (1).
2. Connect monitor 1 (horizontal) to display link via HDMI.
3. Connect USB hub to MB port (2).
4. Connect monitor 2 (vertical) to USB hub via HDMI.
5. Connect power to MB via USB hub
6. Connect external SSD via display link
7. (optional) Connect Ipad via sidecar to MB for a third extended monitor and controller using touch screen/pencil features
Here's a list of the equipment/systems i'm running
- MacBook Pro M1, Big Sur 11.2.2
- Ipad Pro 12.9 (2020)
