DisplayLink Feature Suggestions

  1. Save and restore windows position after a crash

    The display link driver crash sometimes. And all the running apps are displayed on the primary monitor.
    It's a pain in th a** to move them agin to the others monitors again and again.

    I wish we could do that. DisplayLink driver doesn’t have the notion of what a window is. We get pixels and we display them. The window position is part of the window desktop manager (WDM) in the OS. You can find third party apps which constantly look at specific window title and position to stick them in specific locations.

  2. Longer Cables between the 2 USBs

    Offer a longer cable option for dual usb plugs.

    DisplayLink does not design, manufacture or sell any end product today. We are a semiconductor company providing one chip in that system.
    Looking at tickets and “2 USBs” this request is probably referring to the AOC USB monitor and its split cable. We will feed this back to them, but this isn’t something DisplayLink will be able to implement.

    DisplayLink is a semiconductor company. We do not design, manufacture or sell any end product and therefore cannot add features to the end product. We suggest you communicate this to your preferred computer peripheral manufacturer so they can include this in their next generation products.

  4. Ethernet Android OTG

    I know the on board Nic doesn't work with Android. I will tell you however that if you use an OTG Android Nic and plug it into the USB port it works fine. I wonder if that will help with allowing the on board to work. Is it that it's not an OTG supported Nic. If so how could we change that?

  5. Please make a disclaimer for Video Editors. Thanks!!

    usb 3.0 to hdmi on Mac OS 10.14 makes the external monitor image considerably darker. It is unusable for editing as the image is drastically compromised and does not represent the true output.

  6. Make an option to use the desktop monitor as an extension (not just mirror), therefore it can give us the best match resolution display.

    It would be better if the app have an option to use the desktop monitor as an extension monitor, therefore the resolution display setting on the android phone can be different with the resolution display setting on the desktop monitor (not just as a mirror only).

    Thanks & Best Regards

    We would love to do it, but it is not possible to do this from an app. This would need Android OS changes. We’ve pushed for this but the user interest has not been there for Google to adopt this feature into Android.

  7. IOS or Android App which turns a tablet into an USB Monitor

    I checked the current IOS apps for the IPAD and wondered, that all the apps need a driver to be installed in PC/MAC.

    Is there any app available, which turns an IOS/Android tablet into an USB monitor - like ASUS MB168*, or HP S140U ?

    Furthermore it would be great if the touch of the tablet would work as a touch mouse for PC/MAC,

    There are applications available doing this through wireless and this doesn’t need our technology. For it to work through USB, this would need our chip in the device, so an app is not enough.
    Touch is also possible today through other applications or through setups like Windows Continuum. DisplayLink doesn’t have any touch technology, but some manufacturers include touch along with DisplayLink technology in their products.

    This cannot be fixed by DisplayLink as we now need to use the Microsoft USB driver. The Microsoft USB driver cannot support switching USB configurations, which is required to support these docks. This means there are no plans to fix this issue.

  11. Convert OS Sleep/Standby to HDMI CEC

    Can you map the OS display standby, sleep & wake state commands to HDMI CEC? Would be great if my UHD TV would turn off when OS sleeps or shuts down, automatically turn on when OS wakes up.

    As it is, my Samsung UHD TV turns off shortly after OS enters sleep mode. I've enabled CEC, so the HDMI port stays active & OS sees monitor is still available. When OS wakes, its "turn on display" signal doesn't reach the TV. I use TV remote control to turn on the screen.

    Nice idea, but the DisplayLink ICs available today do not currently support CEC, therefore it will not be possible to enable this.

  12. IOS needed...

    Write an IOS-Driver for I-Tec Dual Dockingstation 3.0.

    DisplayLink cannot be responsible for uninstalling 3rd party software. This needs to be done by a user so they understand what is happening.

    We alert the user that there is incompatible software installed, and provide a link to describe how to remove it. It is then the choice of the user to uninstall, rather than DisplayLink software automatically uninstalling other software.

  14. Audio/Video profiles and shortcuts.

    It would be helpful to have keyboard shortcuts for specific display profiles. I connected my dock to multiple monitors and would like to change the profiles as need. Everything has be done through menus now. When you have multiple settings to change, its cumbersome.

  15. stop update the displaylink driver automatically

    My surface pro connect a USB displaylink to external monitor, however, the driver version 7.9M3 & 7.9M4 have problems to display correctly with some web sites, for example, http://www.ifeng.com when browsed by Microsoft Edge. The driver version 7.9M0 has no such problem. I tried to reinstall version 7.9 M0 several times, but it keeps update it to 7.9M4 stupidly! Suggest: reminds users of the new version driver available, let user decide if he/she wants to upgrade it! It's really stupid to update automatically without

    It’s not “stupid” but necessary due to changes in Intel graphics drivers your machine uses. We do not put any update in Windows Update as critical unless we absolutely have to.

    Please create a support ticket with your log files so we can investigate your particular case. Details on support.displaylink.com/knowledgebase/articles/544810-how-can-i-report-windows-installation-issues-to-di

  16. How do I install on an external disk?

    For Apple OSX:
    Although the installer shows a destination button during the install process, once you start it skips it. You cannot select another destination.
    I would like to install the driver on an external disk, is there a work around?

  17. Loose connector between USB3 and VGA converter

    Improve connection between USB3 and VGA converter. The small, non-standard connector is falling out all the time. Make a screwed in connector as is found on the DVI/VGA side.

    DisplayLink is not responsible for the product design. We provide ICs which can be integrated into products. Physical hardware failures such as this, should be fed back to the product manufacturer.

  18. automate recovery of of known issues

    use disable monitor (github) like code, or partner with that fellow to configure reliable placement of primary and tertiary displays. Such software could also probably be used to automate the recovery steps for the osx beta involving turning off all monitors and turning them back on... etc. Could be scripted and done without the user. At the least, check out the prj for quicker QA...

    This can be done today, using standard OS interfaces. DisplayLink displays can be managed using OS APIs.

    Any known issues or problems that can be detected or worked around are already done today.

  19. integrate with package managers

    It would be lovely if i could keep up with the latest display link drivers and software using brew or apt-get. I don't think that's super hard... better apple/linux support probably a priority... but yeah. I think you have a huge market with people who want the reliability of Apple and the display real estate offered by display link (since apple wants you to use their wimpy graphics cards, or pay through the nose for $1000 retina displays).

    (I have 4 display link driven 24 inch screens connected to my mac, with the 2 supported by my laptop -- it…

    Thanks for the suggestion. For Linux we intend to supply and support a driver for Ubuntu, but have designed it to be repackaged for distribution to other Linux distributions.

    We cannot be the experts to maintain this for all Linux distros. We intend to provide the tools to enable it to be ported and added to package managers by those familiar with the particular distro they wish to package it for.

    If you have repackaged it for a package manager, please let us know and we can build a list of supported distros.

  20. Silent uninstall of Windows DisplayLink Driver 7.7 M4 without rebooting computers?

    How can I silently uninstall the DisplayLink_7.7.M4.exe application? I am packaging the software for Microsoft System Center 2012 R2 SP1 Configuration Manager, I set the uninstall string to "MsiExec.exe /X{099F2D54-39A8-470C-A3DA-E2F123F5A6D7} /NORESTART /qn Reboot=ReallySuppress" but the computers are still rebooting. Any ideas on how to silently uninstall it without causing a reboot?

    The reason a reboot is needed is that the DisplayLink graphics driver is uninstalled. It is not possible to complete a graphic driver uninstall on Windows without rebooting the system. This is a Windows restriction.
