  3. Please give users compatibility feedback on specific MacOS versions, e.g. 10.14.1. only

    Rather rather mixing up posts with various OS and driver versions please give users compatibility feedback on specific MacOS versions, e.g. 10.14.1.

    Currently, you make a difficult situation much harder

  7. Alert to security issues if staying on older macOS

    UPDATE macOS, abandon this unstable and insecure devices instead. Apple says DisplayLink is incorrect and opens you to a world of security flaws. I can open a port on the Ethernet using simple SSH commands that shouldn’t be that easy.

    You advise not to update. Apple says the opposite and you are misleading customers into possible security issues. Reported and under review by Apple. Good luck, you have truly done your Apple patrons wrong in more than one way.

    If you can’t build an alpha in a year, this beta should land about the same time I land on mars.

  10. Make it more user friendly

    General overhaul of DisplayLink UI and installation manual. If I were complete beginner, I probably would have no chance to get it running properly.

  12. Driver Download

    Not enough bandwidth, At work with dedicated fiber line so speed and bandwidth is not the issue on our side. Trying to download a some what smaller 47 MB driver should not take 30 Min's or more!!!!!!! Need more bandwidth or web-hosting servers to speed up the process of downloading a simple driver

  13. Issues with OSX using 802.1x using System Keychain

    We just deployed a few hundred of these devices (The Dell D6000)and the OSX devices will not use the system keychain to authenticate to 802.1x, This works properly with the onboard NIC, Apple USB-C Adapter, Belkin USB-C Adapter.

    We use an OSX Profile that states how to connect to 802.1x with ethernet using system credentials. This does not work with the Displaylink Dock. I can however manually input credentials manually and it works, but no user accounts are allowed to authenticate only machine accounts.

  14. Work on compatibility w/ Ableton Live 10 (current version crashes Live)

    I'm running MacOS 10.13.3 (downgraded from 10.13.4 for reasons that I'm sure you know) on a MacBook Air (13-Inch Mid 2011, 1.8Ghz Core i7, 4 GB RAM) and whenever I have any of your latest (e.g. most recent final releases, two most recent "Betas" to fix the issue with MacOS 10.13.4) it causes Ableton Live 10 (10.0.1) to not load/run.

    The main reason that my computer system and I have a DisplayLink in my environment is for making music. I use the two screen setup while working with Live to have my AU and VST plugins visible while tracking. Without…

  15. This has allowed me to get both external monitors in "extended" mode

    Try this

    1- shut down your MB
    2 - unplug both adapters
    3- restart MB
    4- after it's up and you've logged in first plug in the the display port adapter and wait for the monitor to come online it should be an extension, not mirror of the MB monitor
    5-plug in the USB adapter and it should mirror the MB display, though at a lower resolutions than the other external monitor.
    6- DO NOT CLOSE THE MB. If you do it will create a mirror to both monitors if you do

    While the MB comes up okay when the…

  16. Ultrawide resolutions on Android

    HI! I really love this app, truly works like a charm. I have a galaxy S8 and an ultrawide monitor. Unfortunately the app only transmints in 16:9 so there are black edges all around the image, even up and down. It would be really nice to fix it, but still, this is a great app. Hope it gets in soon. Good luck!
