  1. 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.

  2. 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

  3. 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.

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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!

  11. 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.

  12. 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`

  13. 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.

  15. 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.

    If you don’t mind getting your hands dirty and have sufficient access rights on the machine, you can use http://support.displaylink.com/knowledgebase/articles/528017

  19. Highsierra compatible

    Please make the usb driver highsierra (macOS 10.13) compatible! At the moment, I can see my mouse, moving on the monitor, everything other than that is just black. It would be bvery nice if I could use this monitor on highsierra!

  20. 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.
