    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

  2. 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.

  3. Update Monitors Page

    http://www.displaylink.com/shop/monitors

    Many of the displaylink monitors listed on your page are no longer available. Can you mark them as such to make it easier for your customers?

    Also, wouldn't it make sense to include the monitor SIZE in each description instead of making your customers search for them?

    Thanks for the reminder. The monitors page is now updated to remove products that were no longer available.
    We are looking at a redesign of the shop at the moment to allow product searches and adding a monitor size is something we could do at this point.

  4. Support for Apple Sillicon (M1 )

    Is there AS support being worked on for the Big Sur DisplayLink Drivers?

  5. 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,

  7. Add support for Ubuntu 16.10

    Ubutun 16.10 is just days away and the DisplayLink drivers don't work for it and cause X to crash.

  8. 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.

  9. 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."

  11. Make DisplayLink drivers work with suspend on Ubuntu

    My DisplayLink-attached screen went awry after resuming from suspend, and I see that it's a known issue. Not being able to use suspend on a laptop is a major loss of functionality for me.

    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.

    The user guide said I could download it from this website and it is no where to be found. Waste of $60

  17. 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…

  19. 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.

  20. Have an exit button on the "displaylink manager software".

    No need to explain more, its a basic and simple requirement. I want to exit the application when i am not using it. "DisplayLink manager" application is now like some malware which does not allow you to close it.

    Windows graphics subsystem cannot just be shut down like that. That’s the reason why you often have to reboot to install some Windows Updates. This has been addressed in Windows 10 Anniversary Update onwards though, where you can just remove the utility from startup or simply not install it. Marking completed.
