Frequently Asked Questions

Before You Buy

You may have heard of MST hubs, and have been wondering what they are, and whether or not they will work in your setup. 

So what are MST hubs?  MST hubs are devices that take one DisplayPort or Mini DisplayPort video connection, and go to many video connections, usually extra DisplayPort, Mini DisplayPort, DVI or HDMI connections.  This is accomplished through DisplayPort's MST, or Multi Stream Transport function.  MST hubs allow you to mirror / duplicate your monitors so the same window are shown on all of the monitors, or extend your desktop, so that you can have different window on each monitor.

So how can you tell if you can use a MST hub?  MST hubs require that the video card's DisplayPort or Mini DisplayPort output support DP1.2 or greater, which supports MST.  Some MST hubs also specifically require HBR2, or High Bit Rate 2 support.  HBR2 allows for higher resolutions like 4K and up.  You can check whether or not a StarTech.com MST hub requires HBR2 on the individual product pages, under the Technical Specifications tab.

There are a few other important things to note.

  • Video cards can technically support DP1.2, but not support MST or HBR2, so it is important to check with your video card manufacturer that your video card specifically supports DP1.2, MST, and HBR2 (if necessary).

Currently Mac OSX does not support MST hubs, regardless of whether or not the video card does.  This is an operating system restriction, so running Windows on an Apple computer through a program like Bootcamp will allow you to use MST hubs.

Recent versions of DisplayPort include the ability to split to multiple displays from one DisplayPort connection using Multi-Stream Transport (MST).

Although you will be able to connect the MST hub to the Mini DisplayPort (mDP) connection on your Mac, Mac OSX does not support MST for NVIDIA and Intel Graphics Processor Units (GPUs). This results in a mirrored image across the outputs of a MST hub and you will not be able to have multiple independent displays on your Mac.

The limitation of NVIDIA and Intel GPUs lies within Mac OSX. If a different operating system is used, such as Microsoft Windows via Bootcamp, you may be able to use the MST functionality of your Mac.

You cannot use an MST hub to increase the maximum number of displays that a video card supports. For example, if your video card only supports up to three displays, your display limit will still be three displays even if you use an MST hub.

If you have multiple MST hubs connected to the same computer and are experiencing display issues, you should check your video card to make sure that it can support the number of displays that you are using in your setup.

If you use an MST hub in your setup, your video card also needs to be compatible with MST technology. For more information, refer to the following FAQ: https://www.startech.com/faq/mst-hubs-gpu-compatibility.

Yes, you can use this laptop docking station to charge a laptop computer. 

For more information on what the requirements are and about how much power this laptop docking station provides, refer to the product manual.

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.

To use all of the features of this USB-C device, it is required that all of the following components support USB Power Delivery 2.0 and DisplayPort Alternate Mode:

  • The USB-C host connection.
  • The USB-C cable.
  • The USB-C device (for example, a hard drive docking station).

To check how much power this device requires, visit the product page, and look on the Technical Specifications tab.

For more information about the power delivery capabilities of your other components, refer to the information provided by the manufacturers.

No, one USB-C port (labelled with a laptop icon) is used to connect to the computer, and the other USB-C port is used for data only.
