Frequently Asked Questions

Before You Buy

USB-C is a type of USB connector that is capable of supporting the following:

  • Data transfer speeds up to 10Gbps, if you use USB 3.1.
  • Bi-directional power delivery up to 100W, if both the USB host connection and the device support it.
  • Alternate modes, which deliver different types of data at different speeds. For example, DisplayPort Alternate Mode (DP Alt Mode).

If using Thunderbolt 3 over USB-C, the connection is capable of additional features. For example, Thunderbolt 3 is capable of 40Gbps of total bandwidth. For more information, refer to the following FAQ: https://www.startech.com/faq/thunderbolt-3-port-capabilities.

Not all USB-C ports or devices are capable of supporting all of the features listed above, or all of the features at the maximum capabilities. If you require a specific USB-C feature, your USB host connection, cables, and device must all support the feature that you require. For more information about whether your components support specific USB-C features, refer to the information provided by the manufacturers. 

This USB-C device requires that all of the following components support alternate modes:

  • The USB-C host connection (for example, a computer and its port)
  • The USB-C cable
  • The USB-C device (for example, a hard drive docking station)

If your host device includes a Thunderbolt™ 3 connection, this USB-C device will work with your host device.

For more information about the modes that your setup components support, refer to the information provided by the manufacturers.

Installation

This device is plug and play. It does not use any drivers, and does not require any setup tasks other than plugging in the source (for example, a computer) and the destination (for example, a monitor).

Troubleshooting

When you troubleshoot issues with a USB video adapter, there are some quick tests that you can complete to rule out potential problems. You can test to make sure that the following components are working correctly and are not the source of the issue:

  • Video cables

  • Video source

  • Video destination

  • USB video adapter

To test your setup components, try the following:

  • Use the video cables, video source, video destination, and USB video adapter in another setup to see if the problem is with the components or the setup.

  • Use a different video cable, video source, video destination, and USB video adapter in your setup to see if the problem persists. Ideally, you should test a component that you know works in another setup.

When you test your cables, it is recommended that you do the following:

  • Test each cable individually.

  • Use short cables when you are testing.

When you test the video cables, video source, video destination, and USB video adapter, it is recommended that you do the following:

  • Check Device Manager under Display adapters, Universal Serial Bus controllers, or USB Display adapters. To do this, press the Windows key + R, type devmgmt.msc, and press Enter to open Device Manager.

  • If you do not see the USB video adapter in Device Manager, refer to the following FAQ: https://www.startech.com/support/faqs/technical-support?topic=expansion-cards#usb-cannot-detect-windows.

  • If the device is listed with an error, reinstall the drivers following the instructions on the website.

  • Check to see if your video card drivers are current. You can check what video card you have in Device Manager under Display adapters. It is recommended that you go directly to the video card manufacturer's website to check for the latest drivers.

  • Check to see if the monitor is being detected by Windows.

To check to see if Windows is detecting the monitor using a computer that is running a version of Windows XP, do the following:

  • Right-click on the desktop and click Properties.
  • Click the Settings tab.
  • If you see Drag the monitor icons to match the physical arrangement of your monitors, it means that Windows is detecting more than a single monitor. You can click the drop-down menu under Display to see which monitors are detected. This option is not available if Windows only detects a single monitor.

To check to see if Windows is detecting the monitor using a computer that is running a version of Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8, do the following:

  • Right-click on the desktop and click Screen Resolution.
  • You can click the drop-down menu under Display to see which monitors are detected.

The error “Out of Range” normally means that the resolution being output by the computer is not compatible with the display. Try lowering the resolution to see if that helps resolve the issue.  You may need to connect another monitor or restart the computer or source to accomplish this.

(4 stars) Good cable, Puzzling design

By:
I wanted a cable like this for our Boardroom to connect different kinds of devices without having various cables all over the place. This cable does that; allowing different options to connect HDMI with great resolution and clarity. The problem is the USB power connector (needed to power the adapter) is located on the OUTPUT of the cable, not the input side where the laptop is. Adding to this, if this was a male USB-A port, it would work fine, (as some projectors do have a powered USB port on the back) but instead it’s a female Micro-USB port, so you need to use the included 2m cable to achieve the same goal, or loop it back to the laptop, positioning it closer than you would have before. I’m not sure exactly what the solution is to this, it just seems like a good idea got too complicated and then ruined the product’s main appeal.

(5 stars) Fantastic multi-connection cable!

By:
I like the multiple connection options this cable presents. The cabling itself seems stiff and while it will likly flex with age and use, I fear that may also reduce its functionality or cause breakage. Seperating the HDMI cable would in my opinion, make this adapter more portable and reduce a potential weakpoint. Disclaimer: I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review.

(4 stars) Good Multi-use Boardroom Projector Cable

By:
I have tested this cable using Surface Pro Laptops, many Lenovo laptops (with all 3 ends) and Samsung Galaxy S8/S9 phones. These have been connected to 4k TVs, monitors and projectors all without any issues. This cables comes in a very nice flip open box that magnets shut, about the size of a box of facial tissues. This is the nicest box I have seen anything from StarTech come in. Once inside the box the cable is wrapped around a cheap flimsy piece of plastic. The cable has a micro-USB female port on the side to connect to a display. A micro-USB to Full size USB cable comes included and is needed for power (I think it should have already had USB-A port so an extra cable wouldn't be needed). The source end of the cable is more like an adaptor with 3 different input wires on them. The cable and adaptor are all very solid and I wouldn't be worried about them being bumped around a boardroom table. The cable requires power from the micro-USB port before anything will work. Once power is connected the adaptor side will have a light on one of the inputs at all times. When a new device is connected the input light will change to be aligned with what is connected and when disconnected the light will go back to the DisplayPort cable. There is a reset button on the adaptor should something go wrong with it you wouldn't have to crawl around the floor looking for the micro-USB power, but I never experienced needed to use it. This cable is very well made, other than the micro-USB power, the only thing I would like is a longer option. We are going to get more of these cables to use around our various boardrooms.

(3 stars) Versatile cable but not totally thought out

By:
I have tried and tested many adapters over the years and this product was of great interest as it has many many options. The option of HDMI from usb-c, HDMI, or mini DisplayPort is a great all in one cable. There are some issues i found with my computer. I am using an older mac and with the mini DisplayPort you need to run the usb connection back to the TV. This is not very convenient and in my opinion not well thought out. This additional cable (included) feels to me like it is running the wrong way. I would rather see a power requirement coming from the computer not the tv or monitor. Adding this cable in. I feel it should just be built in like the rest. It takes a relatively clean cable and makes it messy. The function of the cable is great and I had no issues getting it to work. I just feel there may be a better way to make this cable. In conclusion the cable works as intended, i just think it is a messy way to do it.

(4 stars) Multi Adapter HDMI Cable

By:
Very well made product that is very versatile and allows you to connect multiple types of sources to an HDMI device. Resolution quality is exceptional. The only thing that I question about the design is that it requires a USB power source and for some reason that put the power input connection on the HDMI end of the cable instead of the Input side so my question is what do you do if your TV does not have a powered USB port and your the supplied USB power cable is not long enough to reach your source since the product does not come with an A/C USB adapter for a wall plug power source?

(5 stars) Great Conference Table Converter Cable

I have been in the AV/IT Integration space for over 30 years. I found this unit easy to setup and use on my Microsoft, Android and Apple devices. This is a great unit for the conference table so that most all digital connection types are accommodated, USB-C, HDMI and Mini Display Port. The unit installs quickly with no additional drivers or software required, and is compatible with a variety of operating systems, which I tested. What is Included: 1 - 2m USB-C, HDMI or mDP to HDMI Converter Cable 1 - 2m Micro USB Cable 1 - Instruction Manual Note: “I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review.”

(1 star) Fatal design flaw

By:
This cable looked like the ideal solution to replace multiple adaptors, but it has a major design flaw: All the cables are fixed. This means that a $230 cable was disabled two days after installation, by the most common universal problem with HDMI Cables - a bent connection. A part which probably cost 30c.Strongly recommend the design be updated so the HDMI cable is replaceable.

Response from StarTech.com:
Brian, Customer Support
Thanks for bringing this to our attention. We appreciate your feedback and apologize for the inconvenience this has caused. One way to protect the connections on our CMDPHD2HD converter cable would be to use short extension cables as what we like to call "port savers." You could use one on each port of our cable. Our HDMIEXTAA6IN and DP2MDPMF6IN are 2 examples of products that can be used as port savers on our converter cable. We hope this helps.
