Doesn't seem to work with 2019+ Macs

By: JWIA - 07/27/2020
I've tried two of these now to connect a 2019 16" MacBook Pro and a 2020 13" MacBook Pro (both running macOS Catalina) to my 23" Cinema HD Display. Neither adapter worked, despite StarTech's insistence it was the adapter I needed. On the 16" MBP, the image would display for 3 seconds, then turn off for 7 seconds in a continuous loop. On the 13" MBP, the image would display for about 2 seconds and then disappear, never to return. I don't know if it's a problem with the 2019+ laptops, or macOS Catalina, but this combination of hardware and software isn't working. To their credit, StarTech sent me a 2nd display adapter to see if I just had a dud the first time around. But, sadly, there appears to be some incompatibilities that have surfaced with the product itself.

Hello, Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. I’m sorry this isn’t working as you expected. One of our Technical Advisors is reaching out directly to see if we can assist with your CDP2DVIDP. This product does support any operating system. We would like to see if you have any additional display to test this with as we’re wondering if the display DVI-D connection might be the cause.

Works as expected

By: Rick12 - 08/04/2020
I went through three versions of the adapter. On the third try, Startech's very helpful tech support provided and pre-tested a needed firmware upgrade and all is now working very well.
