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).

    The implementation progresses. The first products we are working on are the DL-3000 and DL-5000 series and you can have an early preview on Windows 10 Creators Update onwards for these devices: http://www.displaylink.org/forum/showthread.php?p=82958#post82958

    Please do read the limitations before you start using it and use the forum for the feedback so it can be individually tracked and answered to.

    Delivery if forecasted between end of July, early August for DL-3000 and DL-5000 on Windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10TH1, 10TH2, Creators Update and Fall Creators Update.

        @mmm Dell D3100 with Windows 7 is targeted for release 8.3 currently scheduled for July. It's the right hardware, but wrong OS for 8.2 preview.
        I'm looking at trying to get an *alpha* version of the 8.3 driver in May/June for those who feel like trying unfinished software. Today, it's not been tested enough to be acceptable even as an alpha. When I have news I will post.

        I'm running Windows 7 on my work laptop, with a Dell D3100. I understand that to be a compatible device, but I'm not following whether I might be able to try this enhancement by adding a registry key. If so, where can I find the details on that key. I've looked thru these comments and the KB, but I'm not finding them. Thanks

        Installed 8.2 M1 and followed the instructions given. Adding the registry key and re-plugging the docking station did the trick. Thanks!

        Because of the issue with gamma tables in the Anniversary Update, we will not be able to enable this feature by default on that OS. Your feedback validates our testing with issue seeing the login screen as Windows may send black gamma tables instead of default which is not acceptable for people who didn't ask for that feature! You can use the current trick from the forums though.
        Windows 10 Creators Update has the fix so we will enable support by default. Engineering is currently testing on Windows 7 - Windows 10 TH2 (build 10586). If testing goes well, then gamma table will be supported from DisplayLink driver v8.3 on devices whose Hardware ID starts with USB\VID_17e9&PID_43 which is the majority of devices in the field.
        Devices whose Hardware ID starts with USB\VID_17e9&PID_6 are next in line but we have already identified restrictions on HDMI during feasibility study.
        Devices whose Hardware ID starts with USB\VID_17e9&PID_FF will come later.
        Devices whose Hardware ID starts with USB\VID_17e9&PID_0 and USB\VID_17e9&PID_40 cannot have new features added once they are in the field so will not get new features.

        To answer the question below, No— 10.12.4 "Night Mode" doesn't work (yet). Hopefully somehow, someday it will be supported.

      • LukeLuke commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Has anyone tested to see if macOS 10.12.4 beta's Night Mode works with DL? I assume because it's system based it's likely it would...?

        My ThinkPad USB3.0 hub had the hardware IDs mentioned. Install and directions were clear. f.lux now works on my dual display setup. Thanks so much!

      • x655x655 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Great, f.lux works, W10 + i-tec display adapter, beta drive & string EnableGammaRamp=true.

      • Justin RJustin R commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Hi I am on Ubuntu and using a program called Redshift, which is similar to F.lux. I do not know how to adjust brightness either..please help

        @Alban,
        Thanks! I found the setting for getting email notifications on new comments, so I suppose I'll catch any exciting updates fairly easily. Thanks!

      • Henrik ChristiansenHenrik Christiansen commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        What's the best channel to be updated on the progress (or more specifically; when a public beta is available) for this feature?
        I just bought a Lenovo dock using DisplayLink technology, and the F.lux support is surely missed.

      • Alban RamponAdminAlban Rampon (Windows Product Manager, DisplayLink) commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Hello Piotr, our Mac team is starting evaluating if it possible. We have met issues with another part on Mac (DDC/CI) so this is not a straight forward port from Windows.

        Hello Sven, very nice monitor, I use it for trade shows as it's light. This device will not be supported in the initial version version. We are still unsure about possibility. They are built differently and already have gamma curve tables which manufacturers like Asus would use to calibrate them in factory depending on panel used. We need to see if we can override the feature. Investigating is definitely planned.

      • Piotr ZientarskiPiotr Zientarski commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I hope it will be for macOS, I have a device (VID: 0x17e9, PID: 0x4300) and I use it everyday (as well as f.lux) so I can help test it

      • SvenSven commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I was searching for a small size full HD monitor today and came across the ASUS MB169B+.
        What are the plans for f.lux support on that USB display?

      • Alex FoxAlex Fox commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        This is awesome news, Alban! Thanks to you and your team. Count me in for the development build testing!
