Hi dvmblues, As I said in my earlier post on 6th February: "I have got my Mac Mini to display the full 3440x1440 resolution on the U3415W by connecting the mDP end to the Thunderbolt port and the DP end to the DP in port. I did however need to turn DP 1.2 off in the onscreen settings. I have a PC connected using the mDP port of the monitor and can switch between them using the onscreen menu." The miniDP port and Thunderbolt port connections are directly compatible. Unless someone has already done this and posts to say so then you will be taking a risk. It seems likely that this will work as it has for me but Dell have specifically stated that the monitor has no support for Macs.
Via the Mac Mini/ThunderBolt Port to the DP monitor port the resolutions I have offered are: 3440x1440, 2560x1080, 2048x858, 1920x804, 1720x720, 1600x670 60Hz/50Hz Via HDMI I have: 3440x1440 (3... See more...

Hi Giovanni, The only way that I could get picture in picture with my PC via mDP (main display) and Mac via HDMI (PIP). Changing the resolution to make the PIP more useable and have a better aspect ratio is managed on the Mac using the Settings | Displays | and then choose scaled for your U3415W. I found 1344x756 (60MHz)was about right for me. I'm trying to work out how I can connect the Mac Mini using the USB Up port to allow control of both displays with a single keyboard and mouse.  Nigel

Hi Giovani I have got my Mac Mini to display the full 3440x1440 resolution on the U3415W by connecting the mDP end to the Thunderbolt port and the DP end to the DP in port. I did however need to turn DP 1.2 off in the onscreen settings. I have a PC connected using the mDP port of the monitor and can switch between them using the onscreen menu. With DP 1.2 set off it is not possible to Daisy Chain another monitor. I also setup picture-in-picture with the output from the Thunderbolt Port as the main display and then had the HDMI output also from the same Mac Mini in the PIP window. I had mirrored display set off and so I had the weird display of two desktops from the same Mac Mini ;-) I hope this gives you some helpful information. Nigel
