  2. Allow selecting which monitor to use when connected to android device

    I have a D3100. My Samsung Android tablet seems to select the first available display among my multiple monitors, which is not always the optimal monitor to use.

  3. Make it compatible with resolution 1720 x 1440

    I have a Philips screen with the resolution 3440 x 1440. It has the capability to use "Picture By Picture (PBP)" in which you can use two connections and split the screen in half. Then the resolution is 1720 x 1440 for each screen. My Macbook Pro M1 recognizes the resolution natively on one half of the screen, but on the other half the Displaylink does not render the resolution correctly.

  5. switch synch rate 30 -> 60

    I found this fixed my issue. The resolution was 4k'is and refresh rate was 30hz. I suspect this is due to limited resources based on my particular hardware setup. In any case switching from 30hz to 60hz also reduced the resolution to half of what it was. This was a win-win in my case as I didn't need/want 4k. I do have a pretty old machine and I am pumping this all through USB3 so probably a resource issue and then the slow refresh confused my considerably, compared to PC, newer HDMI --> TV <-- . Forgot to add, I…

  6. Create a working support contact address

    Although I got a response to my question from Kaisa/Kate K requesting more details, the sender address is broken when I try to respond - I just get an error from MS 365 and hence can not reach her with the details!

  7. Could you change "Your screen is observed" to something else?

    I got users (macOS) who are thinking that the organization is monitoring them. I have to explain to them that it is the docking station that's getting a wake up call from the laptop.

    Maybe "DisplayLink is waiting for response..." or something...

  8. Wacom display tablet on Android

    Using a DisplayLink dock I have connected a Wacom One Display Tablet to a Google Pixel 3a mobile running Android 12. I have used both the DisplayLink Presenter and Desktop app. The display works however, the stylus input, while recognized, is not calibrated for both portrait and landscape. When using a mouse, the pointer is displayed on the mobile screen but, not the external display.

  10. Persistent connection in clamshell mode

    When disconnecting (Apple M1) from a DisplayLink dock (Dell D6000) and reconnecting in clamshell mode, external displays are not recognised.

    The laptop screen needs to be opened out of clamshell mode and then closed again for the displays to be recognised. This extra step shouldn't be required.

  11. Update documentation for disabling PageFlip on Ubuntu

    The documentation at https://support.displaylink.com/knowledgebase/articles/1181623-displaylink-ubuntu-driver-after-recent-x-upgrades suggests creating a configuration file in /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d, however configuration in this directory may be ignored in favor of user-specific config at /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d. See https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=198719 for an explanation.

  12. Support of proprietary NVIDIA driver

    On my Ubuntu 20.04, Thinkbook 16p 2Gen, ThinkPad Hybrid USB-C+USB-A Dock combination, DisplayLink driver 5.5.Beta works at least for a hdmi 2560x1440 display together with the proprietary NVIDIA driver version 510.47.03.
    Setting the displays via the kde control panel was not so easy and robust ... with "nvidia-settings" impossible.

    It's okay for me now. So, many thanks for the driver. :-)

    Displaylink driver 5.4.1 did not work at all.

    Is it a coincidence or luck that 5.5.Beta works with the proprietary NVIDIA driver?

    Is an update to DisplayLink Release: 5.5, Mar 9, 2022 a risk?

  15. Have the ability to mix 3.5mm headphone jack with 3x 3.5mm surround audio jack via software

    My Toshiba Dynabook uses a DisplayLink-chipset for things like 1x 3.5mm headphone audio output (front) and 3x 3.5mm surround sound audio output (rear; 5.1). When setting Windows to 5.1 audio, the headphone-output only plays the stereo front audio. There should be an option inside the driver-software-interface to switch between different modes: a) headphones/surround are different audio devices, b) headphone should play all 5.1 sounds (the 3x rear audio jacks), c) the current way (just in case somebody wants it that way). Why? I see the headphone output as a way to seamlessly switch between loudspeakers and well quieter headphones. That's…

  16. Update DisplayLink Driver for macOS to launch automatically and hidden

    Hello,

    We are finding that the autostart script is not bulletproof. Having this scripted along with our installation in JAMF is successful however if the automatic startup checkbox is accidentally unchecked by the user it will no longer be enabled for automatic startup. The humanscale dock is unusable unless the DisplayLink Manager is launched.

    https://support.displaylink.com/knowledgebase/articles/1964953-enabling-disabling-displaylink-manager-autostart-v

    Thank you,
    ~ Joe

  19. Enable Combine Displays functionality in the driver

    I have a Samsung Neo G9, which for some reason only came with 1 DP and 2 HDMIs. For gaming I use the DP, but for work I use the HDMIs. To get the full resolution (5120x1440) I run 2x HDMIs @ 2560x1440 via a DL-6950 dual HDMI solution from Plugable.

    The problem is it's one screen. So without this feature, dragging windows hits an invisible "wall" in the center of the screen, my start menu is offset or duplicated, and I can't maximize windows across the entire screen.

    With the Intel graphics center and the Intel GPU, I can…
