A little late to this but I just bought this KVM my version does not have Display ports but you could buy HDMI/DP adapters, I have some from amazon… This seems like it would be your solution but I am in the same boat. However I bought once that allows for 3 desktop monitors & it doesn’t display all 3 with the laptop only having 1 HDMI port & I am looking for a fix for that. Might want to go for a more expensive one as this one doesn’t have powered USB ports so my Keyboard & Mouse do not work & neither does my audio or at least it is not detecting it. These things aren’t cheap and for what is basically an big adapter the thing is overpriced & for me it seems broken. Go big & get one that works or manually switch your cables like I might do. Make sure all the ports are powered too

Yeah, so I’ve seen such equipment, but I’m still confused about the topology of this, and in any case, it still doesn’t seem to solve the issue of having two ports on the graphics card for three outputs.

Say I got this thing. I’d plug each of the three monitors into the output column of HDMI ports. For the input column of HDMI ports from the desktop I’d need one HDMI-to-DisplayPort adapter, but then that still leaves two monitors for one free HDMI port. That’s the first problem.

The second problem is that, for the MacBook, I guess I would just have three HDMI inputs and take up three out of the four USB-C ports on the laptop. That wouldn’t be ideal, but I’d accept it. Or I would buy yet another thing like this maybe, and get three HDMI cables to plug into that dock from the KVM switch, that would go into one HDMI-to-USB-C adapter.

This all seems complicated (and again, not to mention that it doesn’t solve the lack of ports on the desktop side), and I was hoping there was a thing that would solve all of it in one piece of equipment.

For anyone who was watching this thread, I was able to find this:

I have not purchased it yet, but I think it will get the job done! Thank you to u/rinowar!
