DisplayLink Feature Suggestions

  1. USB-C to USB-C with display signal.

    USB-C to USB-C adapter that adds video signal on the USB-C cable. Optionally it would be nice to add a USB-PD charging port on the adapter. Making all USB-C devices more equal.

    This is an frustrating issue with flex offices and BYOD. We can fix it by using USB-C displays or docks, but not all devices have display output on USB-C. A solution like this would basically fix every laptop to become compatible with any USB-C display/hub/dock.

    This is what DisplayLink technology allows you to do: adding display over USB-C or USB-A without needing the machine to have native DisplayPort output over USB-C.
    USB-PD requires dedicated circuitry on the laptop and in the dock/adapter, which isn’t possible to retrofit. However, vendors like Targus have a solution where the dock can provide power over USB-C or proprietary laptop connector.
    If I misunderstood your suggestion, please do not hesitate to comment.

  2. 20.04 has been released! Pre-release has been out for months. Where is the driver/installation?

    Provide a driver and installation that cleanly installs the DisplayLink driver for release 20.04 LTS.
    I have an entire department of engineers ready to migrate to 20.04 LTS.
    Please also be more thorough in documenting the dependencies of the install script.

  3. Why does the 4 year old Chip has the ID DL-6950 and the new Chip has DL-6910?

    Hello

    In 2016, you presented the DL-6950 Chip.
    In 2019, you present DL-6910.

    Is the new Chip less powerful?

    Thanks a lot, kind regards,
    Thomas

    It is possible to use product relying on the DisplayLink DL-6950 ICs before the OS loads provided the UEFI BIOS includes, or the pre-OS side loads, the DisplayLink UEFI GOP driver. The driver is available to all laptop manufacturers. We encourage you to ask for this functionality from your laptop vendor so they inbox it.

  11. DL main display for Raspbian

    Add drivers for ARM, and specifically for Raspbian. Make the drivers work over HDMI instead of (or in addition to) working over USB.

  13. Provide Mac kext information for enterprise deployment.

    Useful if you published the TEAM ID and KERNEL EXTENSION BUNDLE ID for enterprise deployment. We can track it down but it would be nice to have that information included and easily visible. Thanks.

    Dear DisplayLink macOS users,

    We are pleased DisplayLink 5.0.1 driver for macOS enables multiple extended display support on the latest Apple macOS 10.14.2 with additional features (clamshell and clone). We continue our strong support for the Mac platform and are working on delivering future updates with further performance improvements.
    Driver 5.0.1: https://www.displaylink.com/downloads/file?id=1257

    If your DisplayLink enabled device does not seem to work on 10.14, this is most likely due to the OS blocking our kernel extension. Please ensure our kernel extension is enabled by the OS as described in our FAQ: https://support.displaylink.com/knowledgebase/articles/1188004

    Should you still miss extended displays on latest macOS with latest DisplayLink driver, please create a support ticket so your particular case can be investigated. Here is how: https://support.displaylink.com/knowledgebase/articles/755301

    Due to changes in 10.13.4-10.13.6, it is not possible to enable DisplayLink extended displays, except one using Apple AirPlay. If your Mac is from 2011 running 10.13.4-10.13.6 and…

  19. Stop Recommending to disable Windows Update

    Do not recommend installing the msi version of DisplayLink Drivers and then disabling Windows Update. I don't think a vendor should be recommending to customers to turn off Windows Update. DisplayLink should work out a way of getting the 2 working together. Happy to discuss further.

  20. Issue Logging tool for Displaylink

    Considering that displaylink is growing in our company we are facing more complications with Displaylink not working on particular models very well like MS surface devices. But it is also now happening to our Dell estate. So maybe DisplayLink can come with a logging tool so that when it is used it creates a dump which we can pass on to help get an answer from you quicker.
