  1. Please use versioning format x.x.xx instead of x.x (xx)

    We are trying to automate software updates and track inventory of DisplayLink drivers in our macOS environment. Trying to parse versions when the value reports as `4.1 (11)` or `DisplayLink Driver 4.1.11 - Copyright 2003...` makes it difficult.

    In the driver Info.plist file, please set the `CFBundleShortVersionString` key in the x.x.xx format. Even better, clean up the `CFBundleGetInfoString`

  2. Enable 4K HDR support to TV's for extended display use when viewing High End Photographs in Capture One or other Photo Edditing software

    A large number of Photographers are using high end Cameras capable of recording 16 bits per pixel HDR. There are also a large number of 4K HDR TV's being sold but they only display Jpeg format at 8 bits per pixel. It would be fantastic to have a device that would bring these technologies together so people could use their TV's to view and or edit their HDR photographs properly on a 4K HDR device.

  3. See all dockingstations of same type as same device

    Hi!

    We have installed a multitude of workstations with the same type of DisplayLink docking station. When moving from one station to another, the monitor settings are "forgotten" and the new Dell D6000 is seen as a completely new device, and new drivers and settings for monitors, network and usb are needed to be configured.

    Therefore I suggest making it possible to have the driver think that all docks of the same type is also the same device. This will make this problem go away.

    Thanks
    Patrik

    Today, this is at the discretion of the hardware vendor to select if they want the UI on their product. Switching to Gathering Feedback, but, with Windows 7 almost already 3 years out of mainstream support from Microsoft, DisplayLink is unlikely to create new features for that OS.

    If you don’t mind getting your hands dirty and have sufficient access rights on the machine, you can use http://support.displaylink.com/knowledgebase/articles/528017

  6. put your website back

    Your web main menu is bad - the older one was better. The new "Menu" thing is dumb, and unclear.

  7. Add an option to make task icon invisible, when no device is connected

    With the recent drivers the behavior of the task icon changed. It is now always visible. It would be great to add an option so that the user could define the preferred behavior.

  8. Home PC System/Networking Product

    I would like to see a product that will allow me to have one main computer in my house and then have various monitors/keyboards located in other rooms be able to access and use the one computer through my network. 1 PC = less cost and less problems (I hope).

    hi!

    there seems to be a need for better icc color profiles for mac. i'm using asus mb169b+ portable monitor and the colors are not very good. there is a real problem with the subtile greys, they are not getting displayed.

    hopefully there will be something done about this.

  16. Add support for VMware USB passthrough so guest OS can have dedicated display output

    For DL-3xxx and DL-5xxx devices especially.

    This is already working for MacOS but not working for Windows (as mentioned in DisplayLink KB 544870) and Linux.

    This will allow multiple DisplayLinks to be used on single VM hosts behaving like thin clients, which is an enormous user base and thus market potential.

  18. Connecting via Cat6 instead of USB3

    Would be nice to rackmount a few of my PCs in the garage and just gave displaylink devices on the desks kinda like dumb terminals. 3m USB 3 cable limit doesnt allow for this. Maybe its possible with usb extenders. But to get the hot and loud gaming PC's out of the rooms will be a win.

  19. to integrate a PAUSE function into your firmware, that freezes the displayed content anc can eb activated/de-activated by keyboard.

    Freeze functions on classical projectors were very popular, in particular for people facilitating workshops or holding seminars. With the introduction of LCD screens this feature disappeared. Display link could easily re-introduce this. Ideally, hitting a (user-definable) key combination would turn PAUSE on and off. In addition the status (frozen / unfrozen) should be displayed with the application icon.

    Please go ahead :-)
