Answer: Thank you for your inquiry,
The LV5020 engineering team confirmed they have confirmed that there are no known issues for compatibility when using Thunderbold (miniDP) to DisplayPort connection coming out from a Mac - they are currently using the same setup with an LV5020 using a Mac with Thunderbolt connection as we speak.
Please let us know if there is anything else we can help you with!
