I recently bought x6 ASUS 24inch monitors for my battle station and I’m having a tad bit of an issue setting up the MST Hub to get the extra 3 working.

I’m entirely new to xorg configurations, and i have a unique case here, any help would be much appreciated. In ubuntu 16.04 with AMD GPU Pro drivers running on a RX 580 8GB. 1 HDMI + 2 DP (3 monitors without hub) works fine. Plug in the Hub into the 3rd DP nothing in the MST Hub. it still runs fine.

Plug a HDMI to DP cable from the monitor to the hub for the remaining 3 monitors. As soon as i plug the first monitor in it detects it, but only allows 1024×768, also unknown is named on it and does not display anyout put on the monitor. Also it lags / locks up for a good minute.Plug in another monitor and it just craps out to black screen. Did a variation of boots with all of them plugged into the MST HUB, and so on. No joy.

Any ideas? Also thank you for your time.

Here's what it looks like with one monitor plugged into the Hub. After it gets done locking up for a few minutes it displays the following from a screenshot. (Does not actually display the 1024x768 on any monitors, does show the x3 monitors connected to the GPU tho..)
