MacOS BigSur - M1 support: works great, but it would be really helpful to have the "looks like 2560x1440" option available for 4K resolution
use now a DisplayLink capable hub to use an 2nd external monitor on a M1 MacBook..
works great, but on that screen I can only choose between "Looks like 1920x1080" or the full 4K resolution - which is not really good to read on that monitor.....
Would be really great, if the "Looks like 2560x1440" resolution (scaling of UI) would be supported in one of the following updates.....
Would be great to have HiDPI support for all display resolutions the M1 Macs support for the 1st external monitor
DisplayLink Manager 1.8 Alpha is adding an alternative way of adding 2560x/3008x missing scaling modes from M1/M2 silicon.

I should have been a bit more clear. I have the CalDigit but I am also using the Startech HDMI to USB adapter that supports 4K. Since posting I was told that I can use a software product called Retina Display Menu that will get me the desired resolution. It works. I was also told that there could be an update to the display Link software that will also give us the result within the next month or so
Marc, Caldigit TS3 Plus+ does not use DisplayLink technology and therefore is not controlled by DisplayLink Manager app. We recommend you contact Caldigit for support on their product as it would not be appropriate for us to comment.
I have the same issue. I am using the CalDigit TS3 Plus+ and my second LG 4k monitor only displays at 1080p. This is not what I though I would get with this adapter. It would be great for a solution/upgrade. If there is no intention of fixing this issue then I would also like to know and I will go with a different solution all together.
Please add more resolutions. I am only getting 1920x1080 with the M1 running Big Sur 11.3 and Displaylink 1.3.0 Build 56.111. Using the Kensington SD4780P
I have exactly the same problem, is the fix going to come? this is really a blocker for normal work
Same, I got Dell D6000 Dock for my MBP M1 and it can't scale 27" 4K monitor to 2560x (HiDPI) resolution. Thinking about to sell this dock and mac.....
Yeah, this DisplayLink dock I just purchased is completely non-functional on 27" 4K monitors without a 2560x1440 HiDPI mode. The dock and the M1 Mac are both getting returned over this.

I finally plugged my new M1 Macbook Air into the doc, took a bit longer than I'd like to admit to realize I had to actually launch the DisplayLink app to get the monitors to be detected... Only to find out the scaling I assumed to be available, 2560 x 1440 is only available in "low resolution". Terribly disappointed. Hoping a fix is out soon.
This feature would be a real eye candy for me and my 4k monitor.
+1, have three 4k screens the setup with an Intel Mac and Display Link works really awesome.
But with the M1 I can only use one of them due to the display resolution not having a HiDPI option. Basically for the M1 Mac the DisplayLink Software does not provide any benefit because of that.
I also tried the ResX workarround but that makes everything look blurry.
Please add HiDPI support "Looks like 2560x1440" for 4k Displays. That yould be really helpful.
+1, 2560x1440 HiDPI would be pretty nice to see
If you use a 27" 4k Monitor a resolution of "Looks like 2560x1440" would be perfect, that is what MacOS offers, if you directly connect the Monitor.

It's impossible to use 2K resolution via DisplayLink without HiDPI. Fix this, pls!!!
You can try SwitchResX to switch resolutions (Shareware with 10 days free trial). I am using a MacBook Air M1 with an i-tec USB 3.0/USB-C Docking Station 2x4K 85W on BigSur 11.2.2 and two external 4K displays (Samsung U28E590D) in 2560x1440 res.

Please at least give us an idea or timeline of when we could expect this. I imagine you guys are not just going to simply skip the most useful resolution for most people. please post update and timeline

Oddly enough i have 2 BenQ 4k display's hooked up to a dell d6000. and i have the 2560 x 1440 option but it says (low resolution) behind it. I seems to be actually that, low resolution and horrible to look at. Is this the fix they made?
Is there a solution for this? I am about to return my computer over this
+1 for more resolutions instead of 4k or HD. Font and UI elements are either too small or too big.
