Fix power delivery for MacOS Catalina 10.15
Now power delivery is working unstable.
I have a dell d6000 dock. After update to Catalina and upgrade to latest displaylink driver my macbook can suddenly stop having power delivery from dock.
Please enable power delivery, or disable it. I want stable environment.
The power delivery part of the dock is not part of the DisplayLink driver, but there is a firmware update (version A03) available for the dock from Dell which has fixed this for users that have contacted us with a similar issue:

"You need to apply firmware from a windows Machine, I don't think Dell it will create a Mac version at all." So are you saying connect to a PC and download the firmware then hook back up to my mac?
You need to apply firmware from a windows Machine, I don't think Dell it will create a Mac version at all.
Those are only showing windows options. What about for Mac?
The link for this firmware update is .exe, do you have the file format for Mac?
