DisplayLink Feature Suggestions

  1. Fix your product links.

    Clicking on your link to the amazon page for the AOC e1659Fwux- Pro sends an infinite amount of links due to not having an H at the beginning of the web address in the code.

  3. Fix the Linux driver so that it doesn't use 5-15% CPU when my DisplayLink device is _unplugged_.

    When unplugged, I consistently (and continuously, not just short spikes) see the DisplayLinkManager process take up 5-15% CPU. I don't understand why it's using so much CPU when there's literally nothing for it to do. It's really hurting my battery life & performance.

  4. TrayIcon should always display if installed

    Suggestion: The DisplayLink Manager TrayIcon should show even if the hardware is not detected. In that case, it should provide links to helpful KB articles (or better yet, include the troubleshooting steps offline).

    That would have saved me about three hours of troubleshooting a 3rd-party (LizTek) product before I finally stumbled on this site.

  8. HI, Let customers decide WHEN to install new drivers. (Automatic driver update messes up my 4 + 1 monitor trading station.) Thanks.

    (the automatic updates re-arrange and resize everything on my screens causing me headache. The driver should be updater when no windows left opened / programmes running.)

  9. Driver Signing

    Your DisplayLink driver is unsigned. It won't work with 64bit Windows OS. I suggest fixing that if you want people to buy your product.

  10. Problem with new version 7.9M3 - Office Protected View

    I encountered a Problem with the new version 7.9M3 when opening Office documents from remote Location. I had to remove the "Protected view" functionality or alternatively store the document first on the local drive to be able to open the Office document.

  11. Use secondary graphics adapter for rendering as well

    Laptops with two graphics adapters (Intel HD + dedicated) would highly benefit, if DisplayLink would render the data with the stronger graphics adapter as well.

    This idea has been surpassed by the architecture update now available for DisplayLink in Windows 10 Anniversary update. The OS now has an interface for DisplayLink graphics to use the GPUs, and DissplayLink no longer has control over the GPU it can use.

    This either makes the idea “complete” or “declined”. I’m marking “complete” assuming the OS now does this for the DisplayLink driver.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  15. 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."

  16. Can you fix the issue with dual graphics cards?

    I have had a problem with your displaylink products for months now, it's causing my entire OS to hand. It seems I'm not the only one, I found the below forum post showing multiple people have the same issue.
    http://www.displaylink.org/forum/showthread.php?t=63963

    I've tried cleanups, reinstalling the latest drivers and all I could think of. The only way I can get the system to stop crashing is if I always reboot my PC right after I disconnect display link each and every time which is ridiculous. I wouldn't buy a laptop if I wanted to reboot 5 times a day.

    There is…

  18. Support Windows 10 Mobile Continuum

    In the MS world, Disply Link support is good when running Windows on a laptop or a tablet. When it comes to Windows phones. it is the opposite: nothing, nada.

    Ask Microsoft, They are so in need of trendy feature to boost their market share in mobile phone business, I am ready to bet they would finance the development.

  20. Program removing desktop icons!

    I wrote the program removes desktop icons into a side window. You wrote it does not. I uninstalled your software and got my icons back on my desktop. I want you to cease attempting to reinstall your software. I will NOT accept your software on my computer!
