I have a case where I would like to extend a display to two airplay devices. I thought I could do it by enabling homekit, and assigning both devices to a room, then hoping that room would show up as a display device in the display manager. However, I do not see that room appear. Is there a way to do this? Any other way? The point is to drive two wireless displays from a macbook, but it must be recognized as a display device on the mac, because that is how Propresenter uses display outputs. I can do a single wireless display no problem, but I cannot select two wireless devices directly in the display manager for this purpose. It only allows one.

I do not think AirPlay is capable of doing so.

The only wireless display configuration that I have used on my MacBooks is:
  • AirPlay to Apple TV
  • Wireless Display to iPad

There was some hint i saw somewhete that you could airplay a device that is being airplayed my another device. Sort of a wireless daisy chain. I suppose this is also falsehood?

Seems the best way to do this is with two hollyland Mars 300 Pro sets, or the Accsoon Cineview HE with two receivers. About a $800 bill.

Yep, you’re going to need a receiver with multiple outputs. Only way to do it.

And before anyone comments, no, this isn’t a “bug” or something Apple “needs to fix”. This is the way it’s supposed to work. AirPlay to one device only.

One receiving device with multiple outputs.
