VGA Adapters on 2016 MBPs with TouchID

We purchased some cables 2 go VGA/usb-C adapters and have found some odd behaviors.

Some of the 2016 machines it works just fine on. Others we have to plug it into each port (all 4) in order to get it to recognize the adapters. Still others will not work at all.

The cables that worked we plugged into other machines and had problems.

Needless to say, it seems the cables 2 go adapters may be a bit flakey.

We use cable matters usb multiport adapter w/ ethernet they are high price but work for everything but netbooting. I tested all the ports before and i mostly use the hdmi but i know the vga works just didnt test it as much because we bought new monitors to get away from vga.
