  2. Ubuntu driver: using dlm.service is rather unfortunate for a clash with dlm cluster control daemon

    See:
    https://pagure.io/dlm/blob/master/f/init/dlm.service

    It would be better if it could fail with an error in case the file already
    exists and is not authentic (from previous installation).

    Thanks for considering.

  3. Enable HDCP protected content playback on macOS (iTunes)

    Hi,

    I had to downgrade to Sierra 10.12.6 because of the multi-monitor incompatibility of Displaylink 10.13.4. I need my multi monitor setup. But the truth is that Displaylink 4.1, which is compatible with Sierra 10.12.6, deactivate iTunes movies. Here is the message:

    The selected display won't play on one of your connected displays

    This movie can be played only on displays that support HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection). Try moving the iTunes window to a different display. Make sure the entire window is on the supported display.

    When I remove Displaylink from OSX 10.1206, iTunes movie start to plays back.…

  5. Ultrawide resolutions on Android

    HI! I really love this app, truly works like a charm. I have a galaxy S8 and an ultrawide monitor. Unfortunately the app only transmints in 16:9 so there are black edges all around the image, even up and down. It would be really nice to fix it, but still, this is a great app. Hope it gets in soon. Good luck!

  6. Create the ability to defined "docked" vs "undocked" profiles for the USB docking station

    In older versions of Windows there use to be a capability to have different profiles for a "docked" PC and an "unlocked" PC. This would be a great capability for you to add into your product since it is now a corporate mandate.

    My main issue is that I set up my desktop the way I like it and then when I either connect the USB or disconnect the USB all my settings are lost and I can't find my desktop icons anymore. This is a negative impact on my productivity.

  7. 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`

  9. 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.

    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

  11. 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

  14. put your website back

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

  15. Support Night Shift and f.lux for Mac OS

    As documented, there is work underway for Windows to support f.lux. However, I haven't seen any clear communication that support Night Shift of f.lux on Mac OS is in the works as neither are supported via DisplayLink. It would be really nice to have these options on Mac.

  16. 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.

  17. 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).

  19. Not working on ubuntu 16.04

    After I upgraded to 16.04 LTS, I could not use my DisplayLinks graphics/ethernet adapter for graphics (ethernet works fine). I recently installed the newest driver (1.2.65) but I get this error:

    Warning: dlm.service changed on disk. Run 'systemctl daemon-reload' to reload units.
    Job for dlm.service failed because the control process exited with error code. See "systemctl status dlm.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.

    I run journalctl as suggested by the error message and here is what I get:

    26 16:27:28 myhost systemd[1]: Starting DisplayLink Manager Service...
    -- Subject: Unit dlm.service has begun start-up
