Hello, I have a question for a triple monitor setup. I've run a PG278Q and 2 VN279QLB monitors at the moment. All three monitors are connected to a PC via DisplayPort. In addition I have also a laptop with docking station to work. The laptop is connected via HDMI with the two VN279QLB . So I can work on the monitors via HDMI and play via DisplayPort. Now I need to replace the two monitors VN279QLB against 2 other PG278Q monitors. But the PG278Q has only one DisplayPort 1.2 connection . How can I run 2 signal sources to the 3 monitors PG278Q then . Maybe with a DP hub? If so what the DP hub must then can ? About an answer I would be very happy . Thanks and Regards

The DP MST Hubs are going the other way around.
1 Input 3 Output sources.
I'm not sure they work with 2x input and 1x output.

What you need is not a MST Hub,but a Switch, with a mechanical Button to switch sources. Not sure if they exist for DP...

We gonna send it to outa space!
