      Update: November 5th
      Dear DisplayLink macOS users,

      DisplayLink has worked for many months to maintain support for its users during the transition from macOS High Sierra to Mojave. While functionality such as Ethernet and audio or charging, where implemented, is unaffected on all releases, display connectivity has been limited on macOS releases 10.13.4, 10.13.5 and 10.13.6.

      macOS 10.14 Mojave with DisplayLink driver v5.0.1 allows you to run up to 4 extended displays with now optional clamshell and mirror modes. Support for rotated displays is also improved.
      DisplayLink driver v5.0.1 is applicable to macOS 10.14 only.
      Driver v5.0.1: http://www.displaylink.com/downloads/file?id=1257

      Should you experience black extended display(s) with only mouse cursor on 10.14. We recommend you use macOS 10.14.2 Beta 1 or newer. We have also left DisplayLink driver v4.3 Beta available to force an AirPlay extended display on these machines if you cannot update to 10.14.2 Beta 1 with DisplayLink driver 5.0.1.…

      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.
