  1. DisplayLink is lagging on Macos Sonoma

    As soon as I connect my single 1080p display to my M1 Mac the whole system starts to lag, the mouse, the animations and the funny thing is that this is not only on the extended display but on both. Plus one thing that I noticed is that if I shut the lid of my mac and only use the external display the system is smooth again. I think an M1 Air should at minimum handle a 4k extended display.

    Note: I have tried the Alpha build for the manager and it's still awful.

  5. Can’t unlock the MacBook Pro with Apple Watch while displaylink is active

    Can’t unlock the MacBook Pro with Apple Watch while displaylink is active because the machine thinks the screen is being shared. Please implement a flag to the OS that displaylink is not screen sharing but is an authorized virtual display.

  6. macOS App: Clamshell / Lid Closed Mode

    The macOS App driver does not allow me to operate on external monitors with the laptop closed. I had to uninstall the driver and reinstall the one from November to be able to work in clamshell mode. This is glitchy in the old driver, often freezing my computer. I was hoping to see this stabilize so I wouldn't have to restart so often (almost every time I disconnect my laptop from the docking station).

  7. 20.04 has been released! Pre-release has been out for months. Where is the driver/installation?

    Provide a driver and installation that cleanly installs the DisplayLink driver for release 20.04 LTS.
    I have an entire department of engineers ready to migrate to 20.04 LTS.
    Please also be more thorough in documenting the dependencies of the install script.

  8. Have a rotating option for macOS 10.15 Catalina

    There should be a driver where you have an option to rotate the screen for use on both sides. The Display monitor can only go on one side for Mac and it sucks because you should be able to use rotation for how you want your screen to be.

    Dear DisplayLink macOS users,

    We are pleased DisplayLink 5.0.1 driver for macOS enables multiple extended display support on the latest Apple macOS 10.14.2 with additional features (clamshell and clone). We continue our strong support for the Mac platform and are working on delivering future updates with further performance improvements.
    Driver 5.0.1: https://www.displaylink.com/downloads/file?id=1257

    If your DisplayLink enabled device does not seem to work on 10.14, this is most likely due to the OS blocking our kernel extension. Please ensure our kernel extension is enabled by the OS as described in our FAQ: https://support.displaylink.com/knowledgebase/articles/1188004

    Should you still miss extended displays on latest macOS with latest DisplayLink driver, please create a support ticket so your particular case can be investigated. Here is how: https://support.displaylink.com/knowledgebase/articles/755301

    Due to changes in 10.13.4-10.13.6, it is not possible to enable DisplayLink extended displays, except one using Apple AirPlay. If your Mac is from 2011 running 10.13.4-10.13.6 and…

  12. USB-C to USB-C with display signal.

    USB-C to USB-C adapter that adds video signal on the USB-C cable. Optionally it would be nice to add a USB-PD charging port on the adapter. Making all USB-C devices more equal.

    This is an frustrating issue with flex offices and BYOD. We can fix it by using USB-C displays or docks, but not all devices have display output on USB-C. A solution like this would basically fix every laptop to become compatible with any USB-C display/hub/dock.

    This is what DisplayLink technology allows you to do: adding display over USB-C or USB-A without needing the machine to have native DisplayPort output over USB-C.
    USB-PD requires dedicated circuitry on the laptop and in the dock/adapter, which isn’t possible to retrofit. However, vendors like Targus have a solution where the dock can provide power over USB-C or proprietary laptop connector.
    If I misunderstood your suggestion, please do not hesitate to comment.

  19. Why does the 4 year old Chip has the ID DL-6950 and the new Chip has DL-6910?

    Hello

    In 2016, you presented the DL-6950 Chip.
    In 2019, you present DL-6910.

    Is the new Chip less powerful?

    Thanks a lot, kind regards,
    Thomas
