DisplayLink Feature Suggestions

  1. 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…

  2. 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,

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. Some applications detect DisplayLink as incompatible display driver. Problem exists with Adobe Premiere Elements 14, X-Plane, GoPro Quik

    When using DisplayLink some applications show incompatible display driver error. Problem exists with Adobe Premiere Elements 14, X-Plane, GoPro Quik on Windows 10 and I'think at last since version 8 of drivers. Solution is to open them on laptop screen and then switch to displays connected via DisplayLink (in my case i-tec USB 3.0 docking station). It would be nice if it could be solved.

  9. Monitors randomly blacking out - SOLVED

    If your monitors are blacking out using your DisplayLink D3100 check your chair.

    I was having issues with my dual monitors randomly blacking out. After updating s/w, drivers and replacing the D3100 nothing worked.

    As strange as it sounds, I was finally able to determine the cause was my chair. I have documented this in two videos.

  13. Resolve the compatibility issue with Duet Display, Twomon, Spacedesk, etc.

    After I purchased a USB Type C dock driven by DisplayLink technology for my laptop, a big issue derived: every time I want to use Duet Display with my iPad Pro or Twomon USB with my Pixel C, I would have to uninstall the DisplayLink driver before I plug any of my tablets. When I get home and try to connect to my dock, I would have to go through the setup process again. This is just a big inconvenience for people like me.

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

    I’m marking this complete, as Windows 10 Anniversary update has the best compatibility for DisplayLink. This is due to a new interface for DisplayLink graphics developed between DisplayLink and Microsoft being available, as covered here:

    http://support.displaylink.com/knowledgebase/articles/525125

    This thread is becoming a place for any user to post problems on Windows 10, hence marking it complete, rather than people expecting the problem they are seeing is being worked on. If you have problems getting the device to work on Windows 10, please refer to this article, and if this does not solve the issue, please contact us:

    http://support.displaylink.com/knowledgebase/articles/942862

    The original idea for this was to improve application compatibility with DisplayLink on Windows 10 under the new architecture. This is something we are looking into, with Microsoft. It is caused because DisplayLink now appears as its own video driver, rather than part of existing video cards. This means applications that use a…

  16. Please allow the DisplayLink Driver to be disabled.

    As someone who uses a dedicated GPU in alternation with the Integrated GPU. It is BEYOND frustrating when my Nvidia GPU will not switch on because of the DisplayLink driver software. There is no option in windows itself to turn it off, and there is nothing provided by DisplayLink either.

    It cripples productivity when I have to UNINSTALL the DL driver just to use my dedicated GPU.

    Please fix this before you guys release any additional updates as this has been going on for a LONG time now.

    I love my AOC usb monitor. It's great, only after I install…

  18. 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.

  19. 3 Monitor Support on Chrome OS

    As DisplayLink support is not embedded in the ChromeOS 51 build and later, you should add 3+ monitor support for ChromeOS. At this point someone would only be able to run it off of a Chromebook/Chromebox with higher ram (8-16GB+). But adding this support would mean A LOT more business use cases being satisfied.

    DisplayLink imposes no limit on the number of DisplayLink enabled displays that can be connected on Chrome OS from R51 onwards.

    Any limitations found will be OS restrictions rather than something added by DisplayLink.
