      Update: June 20th
      Dear DisplayLink macOS users,

      Installing macOS 10.13.4, or newer, will cause DisplayLink connected displays to go blank after the OS update when using DisplayLink driver v4.1. Extended displays continue to work as expected in macOS 10.13.3 and below.
      Functionality such as Ethernet and audio, where implemented, is unaffected.

      DisplayLink driver v4.3 beta 5 currently provides an interim solution with one extended USB display (720p or 1080p) on macOS 10.13.4, 10.13.5 and 10.14 first developer previews, using Apple AirPlay® on machines with that feature. All additional DisplayLink screens will be cloning the primary display.
      An FAQ details how to enable Apple AirPlay with DisplayLink display for extend or mirror mode: https://support.displaylink.com/knowledgebase/articles/1854724
      DisplayLink driver v4.3 beta 5 is available from http://www.displaylink.com/downloads/file?id=1169

      Our team have made further progress towards finding a solution which would restore full extended display support for multiple DisplayLink displays in a future release of macOS. As…

      I re-installed High Sierra and stayed away from 10.13.4 and things were working again. This morning I restarted my Mac and did not realize 10.13.5 was part of the update. I only hid/ignored the 10.13.4 update :(

      So I installed the beta 5 displaylink drivers. After restarts I kept getting "Could not connect to displaylink" errors. After realizing our enterprise firewall settings might've been getting in the way of Airplay, I disabled firewall from cmd line and it worked.

      Fiddling around further, I now have 2 additional monitors working as extended mode along with the macbook's display in this configuration:

      - Monitor 1 via Displaylink adapter -> macbook usb3 port
      - Monitor 2 via HDMI cable -> macbook hdmi port

      Selected 'use as separate display' from Airplay dropdown in menubar.

      I suppose I could also get Monitor 3 working as extended via Thunderbolt 2 ports, if I had a mini displayport adapter.

      Sadly have to resort to using one hdmi cable until this issue is resolved.
