If you set your display to [email protected] and connect a display to the DisplayPort output on the laptop docking station, your display may flicker. This issue only affects certain monitors and is a result of an interoperability issue between the hardware used in the display and the docking station. This issue is not specific to StarTech.com docking stations.

To resolve this issue, try any of the following:

  • Connect a USB-C to DisplayPort cable from the USB-C Thunderbolt 3 port on the docking station to the DisplayPort input on the display. (StarTech.com product ID for the USB-C to DisplayPort cable: CDP2DPMM1MB.)
  • Connect a USB-C to HDMI 2.0 cable from the USB-C Thunderbolt 3 port on the docking station to the HDMI input on the display. (StarTech.com product ID for the USB-C to HDMI 2.0 cable: CDP2HD4K60.)

  • Disable MST (Multi Stream Transport) or DisplayPort 1.2 mode on your display and enable [email protected] Refer to the information provided by the manufacturer for assistance. 

If your computer is not detecting your Thunderbolt™ 3 device, try the following:

  • Update the Thunderbolt software on your Thunderbolt 3 host device.
  • Update the Thunderbolt controller NVM firmware on your Thunderbolt 3 host device.
  • Update the Thunderbolt controller drivers.
  • Update your motherboard BIOS or UEFI.

For more information about how to update the software, firmware, drivers, and BIOS or UEFI, refer to the website of the manufacturer of the Thunderbolt 3 host device. The following website includes links to some of the manufacturers of Thunderbolt 3 host devices: https://thunderbolttechnology.net/updates. If the manufacturer of your host device is not listed, you should contact the manufacturer or refer to their website for more information.

For more information about how to check which version of the Thunderbolt software and firmware you are currently using, see the following FAQ: https://www.startech.com/faq/thunderbolt-3-check-software-firmware.

For more information about Thunderbolt 3 host system and motherboard compatibility, refer to the Thunderbolt 3 Compatibility and Troubleshooting guide.

If you are only getting a single display to work with your Thunderbolt™3 device, make sure that your Thunderbolt 3 host device can support two separate DisplayPort lines over Thunderbolt 3. 

While Thunderbolt 3 supports dual monitors over a single connection, not all Thunderbolt 3 host devices are designed to meet this requirement. If your Thunderbolt 3 host device does not meet this requirement, you cannot troubleshoot this issue with software, firmware, or driver updates, and you cannot use this device to achieve dual displays over Thunderbolt 3. If you are not sure whether your Thunderbolt 3 host device supports dual monitors, contact your Thunderbolt 3 host device manufacturer.

If you confirmed that your Thunderbolt 3 host device does support dual monitors and you are only seeing a single display, see the following FAQ: https://www.startech.com/faq/thunderbolt-3-update-software-firmware.

  • Select Connect Only Once.
  • Select Always Connect.

Caution! If you select Do Not Connect, only video will pass through on your Thunderbolt 3 device.

If you accidentally set a Thunderbolt™3 device to not connect to your computer when prompted by the system, you can force the software to prompt you again for authentication. To do so, complete the following:

  1. Right-click the Thunderbolt icon.
  2. Click Approve Attached Devices.
  3. Select the Thunderbolt 3 port that you want to authenticate.

To use a Thunderbolt 3 adapter to output to a display at 60Hz, your monitor must support the refresh rate and you need to set the monitor to work at 60Hz. By default, most monitors are set to DP1.1, which will not work with this Thunderbolt 3 device when you use a display at 60Hz. In most cases, you need to set your monitor's DisplayPort settings to DP1.2.

To resolve this issue, use the buttons on your monitor to change the DisplayPort settings to DP1.2. For more information about changing your monitor settings, refer to the website of the manufacturer of your monitor.

Before You Buy

Thunderbolt 3 uses the USB-C connector, but not all host connections, cables, and devices with a USB-C connector support Thunderbolt 3. This means that a USB-C device is compatible with a Thunderbolt 3 host connection, but a Thunderbolt 3 device is not compatible with a USB-C host connection. Therefore, it is essential to know whether you have a USB-C or a Thunderbolt 3 host, cable, or device.  

To determine if your component is a Thunderbolt 3 device, look for the Thunderbolt 3 symbol. USB-C devices do not include this symbol.  For more information about USB-C, see the following FAQ: http://www.startech.com/faq/usb-c-port-capabilites

Components

Thunderbolt™ 3 is the latest version of the Thunderbolt standard for connecting computers and electronic devices. It is capable of the following:

  • Total bandwidth up to 40Gbps. Data transfer speeds are dependent on the other features that you are using in your setup.
  • USB 3.1 Gen 2 support.
  • 4K 60Hz video on one or two separate displays.
  • 5K 60Hz video on a single display.
  • A 10 GbE network connection between two Thunderbolt 3 compatible computers.
  • Up to six devices daisy-chained from a single Thunderbolt 3 port.
  • Alternate modes, such as DisplayPort Alternate Mode (DP Alt Mode).
  • Bi-directional power delivery up to 100W (not all Thunderbolt 3 devices support power delivery).

USB-C and Thunderbolt 3

Thunderbolt 3 uses the USB-C connector, but not all host connections, cables, and devices with a USB-C connector support Thunderbolt 3. This means that a USB-C device is compatible with a Thunderbolt 3 host connection, but a Thunderbolt 3 device is not compatible with a USB-C host connection. Therefore, it is important to know whether you have a USB-C or a Thunderbolt 3 host, cable, or device.

To determine if your component is a Thunderbolt 3 device, look for the Thunderbolt 3 symbol (shown below). USB-C devices do not include this symbol.  For more information about USB-C, see the following FAQ: https://www.startech.com/faq/usb-c-port-capabilites.

Thunderbolt symbol: https://sgcdn.startech.com/005329/media/products/gallery_large/TBLT3MMXM.B.jpg.

Backwards compatibility

If you use an adapter, Thunderbolt 3 host connections are compatible with Thunderbolt 1 and Thunderbolt 2 devices. You can use the StarTech.com TBT3TBTADAP to make a Thunderbolt 3 host connections backwards compatible.

Thunderbolt 3 devices are not backwards compatible with Thunderbolt 1 and Thunderbolt 2 host connections.

Although the Thunderbolt™ 3 standard is capable of data transfer speeds up to 40Gbps, not every cable can support this bandwidth. For example, cables over a certain length or made with certain materials are only capable of data transfer speeds up to 20Gbps. 

To confirm the capability of your Thunderbolt 3 cable, refer to the information provided by the manufacturer. StarTech.com lists the capabilities of the Thunderbolt 3 cables on the individual product pages.

There are two different Thunderbolt 3 cable symbols: the 20Gbps symbol and the 40Gbps symbol. The 20Gbps symbol is composed of the Thunderbolt 3 symbol, and the 40Gbps symbol is composed of the Thunderbolt 3 symbol and the number three. These images are shown below.

Thunderbolt 3 uses the USB-C connector, but not all host connections, cables, and devices with a USB-C connector support Thunderbolt 3. This means that a USB-C device is compatible with a Thunderbolt 3 host connection, but a Thunderbolt 3 device is not compatible with a USB-C host connection. Therefore, it is important to know whether you have a USB-C or a Thunderbolt 3 host, cable, or device.

No, you cannot use this device to increase the maximum number of displays that a video card supports. For example, if your video card only supports up to three displays and you add this device to your setup, your display limit is still three displays.

If you have connected more than one of this device to the same computer and are experiencing display issues, you should make sure that your video card can support the number of displays that you are using in your setup.

Common Issues

MacBook Air, MacBook Pro 13-inch, and Mac Mini systems using the new Apple M1 chip support only a single external display over the Thunderbolt 3 ports, even when connected to a Thunderbolt 3 docking station or adapter with more than one video output. This limitation also applies to using multiple Thunderbolt or Type C display adapters on both Type C ports. This is not a limitation of StarTech.com products specifically, and Apple lists support for only one external display in the Tech Specs for Video Support on the M1 MacBook Pro 13” [external link to apple.com]. Turning off the laptop display or using clamshell mode does not change this.

One option for docking that allows more than one external display with an Apple M1-based Mac is to use a USB-C DisplayLink-based docking station or video adapter that requires a driver install. One dual monitor example is our DK30CHDDPPD, but please contact StarTech.com support for a recommendation based on your specific setup.

Please note: this single monitor limitation does not affect Intel-based Macs with Thunderbolt 3.

How is this possible??

By: Danorian - 02/28/2018
This dock has saved my computer's life. I used to use all four of MBP's thunderbolt 3 ports including the headphone jack. Now I just come in to work and this dock magically does everything through one cable flawlessly. It charges my computer, phone, reads my SD cards, runs my second monitor (4k), speakers, ethernet, printer, and time machine backup. It could do more, but I ran out of peripherals. This dock is seriously amazing. Everyone who comes into my office can't believe how much goes through the single cable to my laptop. Highly recommend!

I like the ability that this dock provides 85W of Power Delivery to charge the laptop, while also powering peripherals with its 180W power adapter. What is unique about this dock is that the dock provides direct access to SD memory cards with the onboard SD card slot, which can also be used for additional storage and backup. What is Included: 1 - Docking Station 1 - Thunderbolt Cable 1 - Instruction Manual 1 - USB-C to Display Port Cable 2 - Power Cords 1 - Universal Power Adapter Note: “I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review.”

Meets all expectations

By: Curt - 02/11/2019
Everything you could possibly ask for in a docking station - 1) lots of ports; 2) no drivers required; 3) no problems. Plugged this into my HP Spetre set-up and immediately had power distribution and DP support; I approved the ThunderBolt device and all connected USB devices / external hard drives were recognized.

One Cable Maniac

By: Slvrscoobie - 05/20/2019
I bought this to eliminate clutter and docking time on my macbook pro. it has 4 thunderbolt ports, but plugging them all in was a pain. I was able to use this to allow GigE connection, but more importantly, dual monitors. worked with the thunderbolt 3->2 adapter to allow me to use my dell U2713hm along with a Thunderbolt display from apple. I recently upgraded both monitors to Dell U2715H and was able to use the displayport and the USB-C/thunderbolt to run both monitors.

A pretty solid dock

By: BogeyMan - 06/16/2020
Bought for use with my MacBook Pro (15", 2019). Works fine straight out of the box. Only issue I have is the power delivery - it's not passing through enough power to keep my MBP fully charged, so I still have to connect my Mac to additional power.
