  2. 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.

  3. 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

  4. 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.

  5. 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

  7. 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!

  8. 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.

  11. put your website back

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

  12. 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

  13. Add an option to make task icon invisible, when no device is connected

    With the recent drivers the behavior of the task icon changed. It is now always visible. It would be great to add an option so that the user could define the preferred behavior.

  14. Increased Mouse lag since the W10 Redstone / DP Driver 8.0 Update.

    I have increased Mouse lag since the W10 Redstone / DisplayLink Driver 8.0 Update. I have a 3-screen Setup here. Surface Pro 3 + the DisplayLink USB Docking Station with 2 additional Screens. Working on those 2 external Screens got a bit tedious since the W10 Redstone / DisplayLink 8.0 Update. Maybe I´m too sensitive, but I feel enough mouse lag on the external Screens to slow down my daily work a bit. I´m using the DisplayLink Adapter since 2 years now and there were highs and lows regarding lag, but Version 7.9 on Windows 10 1511 was really good.…

  15. Home PC System/Networking Product

    I would like to see a product that will allow me to have one main computer in my house and then have various monitors/keyboards located in other rooms be able to access and use the one computer through my network. 1 PC = less cost and less problems (I hope).

    there seems to be a need for better icc color profiles for mac. i'm using asus mb169b+ portable monitor and the colors are not very good. there is a real problem with the subtile greys, they are not getting displayed.

    hopefully there will be something done about this.
