    OS is windows 10, DLUA is 7.9.6.30.0. This often gets in a state where the user agent sets there using between 35 and 38% of CPU.

  2. Don't require drivers to be installed for disabled display adapters

    I have a machine with an integrated display adapter and a PCI adapter running Windows 10. The integrated controller is not supported by Windows 10 and I have disabled it using device manager (I don't have an option to disable it in BIOS). When I attempt to install the DisplayLink core software, it re-enables the disabled adapter and then tells me it cannot install the software because there are no drivers for the adapter that I had disabled.

  3. Windows 10 with 7.9M3 (Yoga 900)

    When windows 10 with 7.9M3 on a yoga 900 goes to sleep and is connected to the dock, it doesn't come back.

    Also, if I unplug the dock when the laptop sleeps, when I wake it up nothing works anymore.

  4. Bring back the forum link under Driver Downloads.

    This product poses difficulties on nearly all platforms and your users need a place to discuss this and collaborate. Your attempt to remove the forums (that still exist at http://www.displaylink.org/forum/) has not gone unnoticed, and at face value appears to be a step in the wrong direction.

    From the top of this page: "However members of the DisplayLink team are active on the DisplayLink Forum, where your question may already be answered."

  5. Repeatedly disconnecting and reconnecting (STILL)

    I'm running an ASUS ROG G56jk-EB72 Gaming Laptop with the latest version of Windows 10 (As of 11/12/2015) 64-Bit. CPU: Intel (R) HD Graphics 4600 & GPU: Nvidea GeForce GTX 850M. Trying to project onto two additional Insignia displays using two Targus USB 3.0 to HDMI HDTV Video Adapter. So I spent about $300 for the displays and $160 on the video adapters and this doesn't even work. I am beyond frustrated. All of my drivers are up to date. I followed the steps as instructed by the troubleshooting page; "How to fix your DisplayLink product from repeatedly disconnecting and…

  8. Program removing desktop icons!

    I wrote the program removes desktop icons into a side window. You wrote it does not. I uninstalled your software and got my icons back on my desktop. I want you to cease attempting to reinstall your software. I will NOT accept your software on my computer!

  9. Use secondary graphics adapter for rendering as well

    Laptops with two graphics adapters (Intel HD + dedicated) would highly benefit, if DisplayLink would render the data with the stronger graphics adapter as well.

    This idea has been surpassed by the architecture update now available for DisplayLink in Windows 10 Anniversary update. The OS now has an interface for DisplayLink graphics to use the GPUs, and DissplayLink no longer has control over the GPU it can use.

    This either makes the idea “complete” or “declined”. I’m marking “complete” assuming the OS now does this for the DisplayLink driver.

  10. Problem with new version 7.9M3 - Office Protected View

    I encountered a Problem with the new version 7.9M3 when opening Office documents from remote Location. I had to remove the "Protected view" functionality or alternatively store the document first on the local drive to be able to open the Office document.

  11. Can you fix the issue with dual graphics cards?

    I have had a problem with your displaylink products for months now, it's causing my entire OS to hand. It seems I'm not the only one, I found the below forum post showing multiple people have the same issue.
    http://www.displaylink.org/forum/showthread.php?t=63963

    I've tried cleanups, reinstalling the latest drivers and all I could think of. The only way I can get the system to stop crashing is if I always reboot my PC right after I disconnect display link each and every time which is ridiculous. I wouldn't buy a laptop if I wanted to reboot 5 times a day.

    There is…

    This should be fixed by the 2.5 Mac release. If you still have issues, please raise a support issue through the “Contact Us” form

  13. add support for the VMWare SVGA Driver so that virtual machine guests can use display link

    When using virtual machines it would be really handy to have them display via usb adapters on spare monitors or PIP overlays in fancy monitors.

    Many virtualisation engineers would be buying your products, many times.

    The new DisplayLink architecture in Windows 10 Anniversary update onwards now enables support for Virtual machines.

  14. Allow auto hide of the taskbar on multiple displays

    In the previous windows version DisplayLink7.5M1 the auto-hide of the taskbar applied across all screens. This no longer happens in the latest version DisplayLink7.9M2.

  15. Instead of simply crashing, alert the user to a monitor hardware malfunction

    I recently found out through a very circuitous process that my monitor is failing. But in this process, instead of alerting me to any issue, the drivers would crash and the icon would disappear from my system tray, making me think your software was malfunctioning. Instead, such a crash should be caught with exception handling, and then alert the user there is a hardware malfunction.

  16. Use GPU rendering to lower CPU usage

    Can we access the GPU to take advantage of OpenGL, etc, to avoid the heavy CPU (and laptop battery) usage?

    DisplayLink software already checks the CPU and GPU resources available on a platform and uses these to provide the best user experience possible.

    This is why some compatibility issues can be resolved by updating to the latest graphics drivers available for your primary graphics card,

    This is already supported today by connecting multiple DL-5000 series devices to the same USB bus.

  19. Support f.lux and Night Light on Windows

    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).

  20. Support Windows 10 Mobile Continuum

    In the MS world, Disply Link support is good when running Windows on a laptop or a tablet. When it comes to Windows phones. it is the opposite: nothing, nada.

    Ask Microsoft, They are so in need of trendy feature to boost their market share in mobile phone business, I am ready to bet they would finance the development.
