  1. Support flux by allowing color calibration

    Flux will reduce the amount of blue light emitted by the screen which aids going to bed. As it stands, there is no support for color calibration to DisplayLink connected monitors. DCC/CI commands are supported, but there are issues that make it not a viable solution (http://superuser.com/questions/257606/is-there-a-work-around-to-configure-brightness-or-color-on-a-displaylink-monitor).

      Now the analysis for the feature has completed, the implementation has started. Contrast and brightness are already supported through DDC/CI and we are now developing gamma curve modification. The first products we are working on are the DL-3000 and DL-5000 series.

      • TrayIcon should always display if installed

        Suggestion: The DisplayLink Manager TrayIcon should show even if the hardware is not detected. In that case, it should provide links to helpful KB articles (or better yet, include the troubleshooting steps offline).

        That would have saved me about three hours of troubleshooting a 3rd-party (LizTek) product before I finally stumbled on this site.

          Thank you for the suggestion. Now in implementation on v8.0 of our drivers. This will help the debugging by telling which element of the chain is missing. Today, the icon is only visible if drivers are installed, AND a device using DisplayLink technology is connected and running AND a working monitor is plugged into it.

        • HI, Let customers decide WHEN to install new drivers. (Automatic driver update messes up my 4 + 1 monitor trading station.) Thanks.

          (the automatic updates re-arrange and resize everything on my screens causing me headache. The driver should be updater when no windows left opened / programmes running.)

            I understand this is a problem and we already have a change in behaviour for our next major release.

            This will cause the software update to happen over the next reboot, rather than immediately while you are working.
