Default 2020 Mac mini M1 3 screens

Hey there, I have a 2020 Mac mini m1 that I am trying to connect a 3rd display (42" TV) to. I currently have 1 monitor via usb c and one via HDMI. I thought I could just connect the 3rd monitor to the other usb c but have now discovered that wont work. What is my best solution to this? Thank you!

Your specific model of Mac mini is limited to a maximum of two external displays. Apple calls this out under the 'Video Support' section within the technical specifications for your computer --> https://support.apple.com/en-us/111894

If you wish to add a third external display to your Mac, you will need to a use a product based on DisplayLink technology.

DisplayLink has a list of products that are based on DisplayLink technology here --> https://www.synaptics.com/products/d...ylink-products

Hi! To connect a third display to your 2020 Mac mini M1, you can use a DisplayLink adapter. DisplayLink technology allows you to connect additional monitors via USB. Simply plug the DisplayLink adapter into a USB-A or USB-C port, and then connect your third display to the adapter. This should enable you to use all three displays simultaneously.

The M1 Mac mini can only natively support two displays, buuuuut, you can try a Multi-monitor Adapter with DisplayLink Chip
