Frequently Asked Questions

Installation

Starting in High Sierra 10.13, macOS enforces stricter security policies than previous revisions. As a result of these changes, software packages, like those used in this installation, will need to be allowed within the macOS Security and Privacy settings, immediately after the software has been installed, in order for the device to operate.

To allow the software, follow these steps after you've completed installation on your Mac:

  1. Open System Preferences.
  2. Open Security & Privacy.
  3. Click the Allow button near the bottom of the General tab.

Note: The option to allow the software will be available within the Security & Privacy settings for 30 minutes. If the software is not allowed within that time frame, the software must be reinstalled in order for macOS to grant the opportunity to allow it again.

To install the DisplayLink Manager app, please follow these steps:

  1. Download the latest driver: [displaylink] mac usb display adapter.zip
  2. Connect the StarTech.com product to both your Mac and the external display
  3. Follow Steps 4 to 4.10 here: DisplayLink Manager App for macOS [external link to DisplayLink.com]

If the displays still do not work, please review these points:

  • After installing, ensure you have completed Steps 4.4 to 4.9 in the linked article, which includes running the application after installation and selecting “Launch automatically after logging-in”.  This will ensure it starts automatically every time you log-in.
  • On Apple M1-based Macs, you may be prompted to install Rosetta during the DisplayLink install process. This is currently required to allow DisplayLink to work on Apple Silicon Macs.
  • Clamshell and rotation support on macOS Big Sur 11.x with DisplayLink Manager [external link to DisplayLink.com]

Troubleshooting

DisplayLink powered USB video adapters and docking stations are not compatible with any MacBook running macOS 10.13.4 - 10.13.6. If a system has updated to macOS 10.13.4, 10.13.5, or 10.13.6, upgrading to macOS 10.14 (Mojave) is an option for users to restore DisplayLink functionality.

At this time, the DisplayLink compatibility issue also affects any 2018 MacBook Pro laptops with an Intel Coffee Lake CPU running macOS 10.14. Please see the DisplayLink site for a driver download workaround. This workaround will force AirPlay to extend or mirror one USB display.

For alternative product recommendations including our catalog of Thunderbolt™ products, connect with our Technical Advisory team at the bottom of our Support page.

Computers running macOS Catalina (10.15) may experience compatibility issues with products that use DisplayLink technology, such as USB Docking Stations and Video Adapters. Connecting to a DisplayLink-powered Product may cause the Display(s) to output a blank screen. If you experience this problem, follow these steps:

  1. Update computer to the latest version of macOS 10.15
  2. Permit Screen Recording by following these steps: macOS Catalina 10.15: Screen Recording permission (external link)
  3. Enable the DisplayLink Kernel Extension by following these steps: macOS 10.13, 10.14 and 10.15: Video functionality not enabled (external link)
  4. If the problem persists, try installing the DisplayLink Manager Application (external link). Be sure to run the application after installation and select “Launch automatically after logging-in” for it to start automatically every time you log-in.
  1. Our driver may not be installed or is out of date.  Install the latest driver from StarTech.com’s website.
  2. The primary display adapter for the computer has an outdated or basic driver installed. Update the video driver using the manufacturer’s support site.
  3. The product requires an existing video controller (onboard or discrete) from Intel, AMD, or NVIDIA.  The video controller must have a WDDM (Windows Display Driver Model), compatible driver. Most video controllers from 2008 or newer will meet this requirement.
  4. An incompatible operating system is being used (i.e., MCT based adapter and macOS).  If using a Mac, we recommend exchanging the product for a DisplayLink based version.
  5. The display connected to the StarTech.com adapter is set to the wrong video input. Use the display’s on-screen display menu to select the correct input.

Your user account may require administrator privileges to install the driver.  If the computer is managed by the IT department or service provider, they may need to be contacted to help with this step.

Disable hardware acceleration in each browser and Office application, then close and re-open each application.

Ensure the Sound Playback device in Windows (or Output device in macOS) has been set to be our USB audio device.

Before You Buy

No, this product requires a video card or onboard video to already be present in the computer. Please also make sure that the latest video driver is installed for the existing video controller. 

Whether this device works with the Chrome OS™ operating system or not depends on the version of the Chrome OS operating system that you’re running and the model of the Chromebook™ notebook computer that you’re using.

Existing DisplayLink® enabled USB 3.0 products natively support Chrome OS build version R55 and later, but not all Chromebook notebook computers running build version R55 and later natively support DisplayLink. Support for DisplayLink is being rolled out to Chromebook notebook computers in a series of releases. To see the build version of the Chrome OS operating system that supports DisplayLink and corresponds to the model of the Chromebook notebook that you’re using, view the following knowledge base article on the DisplayLink website: http://support.displaylink.com/knowledgebase/articles/891030.

In Windows, the maximum number of displays that can be used using DisplayLink technology is 6. In macOS, the maximum is 4 displays. Some computers may have limitations that will reduce this number. These limitations are usually the result of the GPU, or USB controller resources.

USB to dual Display Port

By: Starr - 06/26/2018
This product was a surprise for me. I was skeptical about running 2 4K display ports on a single USB port but the quality was great and it was simple to install.

A nice alternative to a dock for those on the go

By: ShawnO_6 - 07/17/2018
This adapter works as described and can be setup quickly and easily. It is smaller, lighter than a docking station for those who only need additional displays or have cost concerns. The fact that it requires no additional power may also make this a smart choice for those who want a dock without the hassle of additional cables, etc. I did not have any 4K displays available but this adapter provided crystal clear output to my standard displays. I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review.

Problem Free After Initial Installation

By: NickD_CA50 - 07/18/2018
I have been testing this dual DisplayPort to USB adaptor for a few weeks with my Lenovo laptop and two monitors. It has been working well and I keep forgetting it is even connected. The adaptor comes in a box about the size of a couple DVD cases. The adaptor fits in the palm of my hand and the cable is the length of my forearm. The adaptor is very well made with round soft sides and shiny black ends. The USB cable connects firmly to my computer and the DisplayPort cables click in to lock nicely in the adaptor. When I first connected the adaptor to my computer, it made all the dings to indicate it had been connected. When I connected a monitor nothing happened and I could not get any video to work. I tried a few times with the same result. I then downloaded the installation software from the product website. It installed a DisplayLink software which although I don't like having to install software, it does appear to be more reputable than others I have had to install for display adaptors. After the software was installed the adaptor worked immediately when connected. It is equally as fast and reliable as using the manufacturer band's docking station. Not a single hiccup using this adaptor after the software was installed (I am using Windows 10). I wish that I didn't have to install any software to use this adaptor, but once it got going it was working well. I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review.

Great solution to add more displays

By: alexanderb - 12/16/2020
I needed to connect 5 monitors on a single PC and only had a HDMI and VGA adaptor onboard. First I searched for a dedicated graphics card with 5 output ports, but that seemed to be difficult because it needed to be low profile and there aren't much graphics cards with that much ports. I'am glad I found this adaptor from Startech, since it's a very easy solution to add multiple monitors with a far lower price than a graphics card would've cost. I connected two Startech adaptors and used the HDMI port for the 5th monitor. Everything was working right out of the box, I didn't even needed to install drivers. Very happy with them!

Works perfectly as advertised on M1 MacBook Pro

By: F240 - 05/06/2021
Been using for months so that I could use 3 displays with M1 Mac. This totally solved the problem. Using with LG 4k 24 inch, in addition to built In screen and another LG 21 inch 4k directly into M1 Mac. Could not be more stable. Absolutely first rate for typical, professional use case.
