It sems that I will need a Thunderport 3/USB-C -> Thunderport 2 adapter anyway so could I just daisychain this with my existing Thunderport 2 -> VGA adapter?

I have yet to succed showing Presenter Display on my laptop outside, using my VGA adapter. So I fall back on mirroring. Admittedly I invariably have very little time experimenting with set-up, local hosts/organizers usually very reluctant to allow a Mac anyway.

Living serenely with my Cinema (with an adapter)., not so much my Raen big screen, and all of it under 10.6.8. So, certainly not advice and not even comment. Just a wistful remark.
