  2. MacOS BigSur - M1 support: works great, but it would be really helpful to have the "looks like 2560x1440" option available for 4K resolution

    use now a DisplayLink capable hub to use an 2nd external monitor on a M1 MacBook..

    works great, but on that screen I can only choose between "Looks like 1920x1080" or the full 4K resolution - which is not really good to read on that monitor.....

    Would be really great, if the "Looks like 2560x1440" resolution (scaling of UI) would be supported in one of the following updates.....

    Would be great to have HiDPI support for all display resolutions the M1 Macs support for the 1st external monitor

  3. macOS App: Clamshell / Lid Closed Mode

    The macOS App driver does not allow me to operate on external monitors with the laptop closed. I had to uninstall the driver and reinstall the one from November to be able to work in clamshell mode. This is glitchy in the old driver, often freezing my computer. I was hoping to see this stabilize so I wouldn't have to restart so often (almost every time I disconnect my laptop from the docking station).

  4. Fix drivers about screen lag when using external 4K monitor (macOS Catalina)

    Please fix DisplayLink Drivers as using an external 4K monitor (Samsung S32R750) with Targus DV4K with latest drivers (5.2.5) on macOS Catalina (10.15.6 on MacBook Pro 16" 2020) plugged through Apple USB-C cable (40 Gbits) is making everything "laggy" on the external 4K (mouse, space change, video playing, etc.).
    Everything has been tested (cables check and changes, switching HDMI or DisplayPort, using original Targus single USB-C cable or using Apple USB-C cable, etc.) to see this issue it is ONLY and DIRECTLY linked to DisplayLink Drivers on MacOS.
    No issues when using a simple USB-C adapter with 4K HDMI (instead…

  5. Can’t unlock the MacBook Pro with Apple Watch while displaylink is active

    Can’t unlock the MacBook Pro with Apple Watch while displaylink is active because the machine thinks the screen is being shared. Please implement a flag to the OS that displaylink is not screen sharing but is an authorized virtual display.

  6. Make DisplayLink installer compatible with Ubuntu 21.04 (Hirsute Hippo)

    I'm testing the prerelease version of the next Ubuntu release, 21.04 (Hirsute Hippo). There are incompatibilities between 21.04 and the current Ubuntu DisplayLink release, and I wanted to bring them to your attention, in case you weren't already aware, ask whether you are aware of any workarounds, and ask what your timeline is for supporting 21.04.

    1) The evdi kernel module that ships with your DisplayLink installer does not compile under 21.04. I had to use the evdi module included with Ubuntu rather than the version that comes with your DisplayLink installer.

    2) It appears that if my DisplayLink hub…

  7. Support for Samsung's Dex and Huawei's Desktop mode Android

    Guys will be awesome that displaylink apps could take advantage of these features, they are already working desktop experiences for Android, we will only need you guys to support those functionalities over the wired connection instead just mirroring the phone.

  8. Fix rotation of multiple external displays on MacOS

    Currently the 'workaround' specified on DisplayLink forum to enable rotation (open System Preferences with Opt-Cmd pressed) does not enable rotation scheme on all external displays (only allows rotation on internal laptop display..) This provides no assistance to setting rotation for DisplayLink devices.

    Please make the change to driver to allow different resolutions (rotated resolutions) on your displaylink devices so that MacOS Catalina etc. users can benefit from rotation on big external displays.

    Many thanks,

    M.

  10. Fix the EXTREME Mouse Lag after updating to Big Sur (MacOS)

    I thought it's my system so I kept on restarting my system but then realized it's the DisplayLink driver after I updated to Big Sur. Any idea of when it's getting fixed.

  11. Implement Clamshell mode for Big Sur / M1 Chip

    I cannot run external displays while in clamshell mode on Big Sur, while the laptop is open it works perfectly fine.

    The second you close the laptop and enter clamshell mode you lose signal to your external displays.

    This has issue has over 450 votes and has been an issue since August 2020, how long do we have to wait for this to be implemented or is there any work arounds that are currently working?

    This is a major issue that is affecting thousands of users, we haven't had any update since November.... Will this ever be fixed?

  12. Dual screen setup: Laggy vertical screen +DisplayLinkUser Agent eating 100% CPU with a MBP 2019 Intel

    Hello,

    I have 2 external monitor DELL AW2721D which are QHD (2x 2560x1440p). Both are plugged using HDMI. I can't close my MacBook Pro because you don't support clamshell on Intel Based MBP (sad). It's plugged on a StarTech Dual 4k universal docking station USB-C 100W.

    One is horizontal, the other is vertical (90° rotation).
    The horizontal screen position monitor runs smooth (moving windows around, moving cursor).

    PROBLEM: the rotated monitor (90°) is extremely laggy. Even moving the mouse feels laggy.

    I've noticed that DisplayLinkUser agent is eating up to 100% of the CPU when moving a windows in that…

  13. Improve DisplayLink performance on macOS BigSur (11.1)

    I bought the "USB-C Universal Quad 4K (QV4K) Docking Station with 100W Power Delivery" ($500) and three 1440p displays ($1500) to find out my macbook-pro OS version (BigSur - 11.1) has unusable lag with DisplayLink... The mouse cursor is a jarring delay behind the inputs I give and swapping between application windows or workspaces has extreme tearing/stuttering.. looks like its running at about 5 FPS - this is on the recommended monitor resolution too

    Really disappointing DisplayLink

  14. support close lid

    It would be great if you can implement support for the close lid, as this is available for the legacy driver, I'm not able to work on my Mac when the lid is closed and have to stick with old software to had that feature. On Display link Manager when you put a lid to close mode mac goes to sleep instead of turn off the internal monitor.

  15. Nvidia CUDA for DisplayLink docks

    CUDA® is a parallel computing platform and programming model developed by NVIDIA for general computing on graphical processing units (GPUs). With CUDA, developers are able to dramatically speed up computing applications by harnessing the power of GPUs

    DisplayLink can start using it to free up CPU for the other tasks?

  16. Support both Xorg and Wayland with acceptable performance in Ubuntu 20.04

    The current released Ubuntu installer doesn't work in 20.04, which will be released in a couple of months as the next LTS release.
    If you hack the installer not to compile the kernel module, and instead use the kernel module and install the libevdi0 that ship with Ubuntu, then you can use DisplayLink under Wayland, but the performance is terrible -- significant lags in display updates and watching videos is impossible. And in this configuration DisplayLink doesn't work with Xorg at all.
    Please rectify this before 20.04 ships.

  19. Display "Flip"

    Ich benutze den dritten Zusatzmonitor für einen Teleprompter, damit ich meinen Teilnehmern direkt "in die Augen schauen kann". Dazu wird der Bildschirm auf einem halbdurchlässigen Spiegel, der vor der Kamera sitzt, gespiegelt.

    Problem: Der Bildschirminhalt ist dann gespiegelt. Die einstellbare Drehung um 90/180/270 nützt hier leider nichts.

    Man nennt dies wohl "Display Flip" - es gibt auch spezielle Grafikkarten die dies ermöglichen, aber für Mac habe ich bisher keine Lösung gefunden.

    Meine aktuelle Lösung sieht so aus, dass ich einen zusätzlichen "echten Spiegel" dazwischen habe, das Bild also zwei mal gespiegelt wird. Das ist aber sehr Platzraubend und nimmt dem…

  20. Add features to DisplayLink Manager (Mac OS; poss. others)

    Let's turn the screen real-estate from the DisplayLink Manager (DLM) into something more useful:
    1) Add display of DLM version number.
    2) Add access to DLM logs or trouble-shooting tools.
    3) Add unicorns and rainbows. (Catch-all for any content you'd like.)
