        • Create the ability to defined "docked" vs "undocked" profiles for the USB docking station

          In older versions of Windows there use to be a capability to have different profiles for a "docked" PC and an "unlocked" PC. This would be a great capability for you to add into your product since it is now a corporate mandate.

          My main issue is that I set up my desktop the way I like it and then when I either connect the USB or disconnect the USB all my settings are lost and I can't find my desktop icons anymore. This is a negative impact on my productivity.

          • Please use versioning format x.x.xx instead of x.x (xx)

            We are trying to automate software updates and track inventory of DisplayLink drivers in our macOS environment. Trying to parse versions when the value reports as `4.1 (11)` or `DisplayLink Driver 4.1.11 - Copyright 2003...` makes it difficult.

            In the driver Info.plist file, please set the `CFBundleShortVersionString` key in the x.x.xx format. Even better, clean up the `CFBundleGetInfoString`

              • Enable 4K HDR support to TV's for extended display use when viewing High End Photographs in Capture One or other Photo Edditing software

                A large number of Photographers are using high end Cameras capable of recording 16 bits per pixel HDR. There are also a large number of 4K HDR TV's being sold but they only display Jpeg format at 8 bits per pixel. It would be fantastic to have a device that would bring these technologies together so people could use their TV's to view and or edit their HDR photographs properly on a 4K HDR device.

                    • See all dockingstations of same type as same device

                      Hi!

                      We have installed a multitude of workstations with the same type of DisplayLink docking station. When moving from one station to another, the monitor settings are "forgotten" and the new Dell D6000 is seen as a completely new device, and new drivers and settings for monitors, network and usb are needed to be configured.

                      Therefore I suggest making it possible to have the driver think that all docks of the same type is also the same device. This will make this problem go away.

                      Thanks
                      Patrik

                              Today, this is at the discretion of the hardware vendor to select if they want the UI on their product. Switching to Gathering Feedback, but, with Windows 7 almost already 3 years out of mainstream support from Microsoft, DisplayLink is unlikely to create new features for that OS.

                              • Charging via DisplayLink to device information

                                Can you please review/update your information surrounding Android vs USB-C vs DisplayLink vs Charging? There is lots of conflicting information around this online (mostly on your site!) - most referring to periods pre-2016.

                                It is hard to ascertain if a DisplayLink device is a solution to my consumer scenario/issue at home.

                                      Your web main menu is bad - the older one was better. The new "Menu" thing is dumb, and unclear.

                                      • FreeBSD support

                                        I use SUNIX VGA2715 which shows it is DisplayLink adapter. It works fine on Mac but it dosn't work on FreeBSD even if I load dynamic kernel module "udl".

                                        I am not familiar with that ; if it requires additional driver, could DisplayLink provide or give me any possible to workaround ?

                                        Thanks,
                                        Apua

                                        • No display driver due to secure boot

                                          It would be good to mention that due to secure boot settings
                                          it can happen that the evdi.ko driver is actually not loaded.
                                          In this case no displays are found.

                                          A solution is to switch off the secure boot - see:
