2 Moshi USB C to DisplayPort Cables bidirectional (Support 5K@60 Hz, 4K HDR)
BigSur 11.5.1
DisplayLink Manager 1.4.0

DisplayLink manager sees all 3 monitors and I can even see the arrangement in System Preferences but the screens are black! but if I only set up 1 monitor via the hub then it works (1980 x 1080).

How do I make both monitors display??
I will check my setup tomorrow at the office and let you know exactly how they are set up.

There is one consistent thing I have to do in order for the monitors to work every time. My MacBook Pro has to be fully powered on and THEN I plug in the D6000 to the laptop. If I am plugged into the laptop before I boot up, the dock is not properly recognized and my monitors don't come on.

When I power on and sign in first, then I get both external monitors and the macbook pro display, so I have full use of three screens.

I checked this morning. I have similar specs to your setup.
MacOS 11.5
DisplayLink Manager 1.4.0
Dell D6000
Also have 16 GB, 13" w/the M1 chip
My monitors are both Dell 24"

My setup uses both DisplayPort ports from the dock, and the monitors receive the DisplayPort ports, as well. No cable conversions in between, just straight DisplayPort.

Again, I have to power on my laptop and sign in, and THEN I connect to the D6000.

Make sure the DisplayLink software is running... not sure what else might be happening.

Thanks

I have used two different docking stations now, same problem.
1 monitor works just fine, the other flips upside down and freezes.
If i mirror the displays they all work, but one is upside down.

any suggestions?

Thanks for the follow up! Still doesn’t work even starting it up it same way as you are. At this point I am ready to go back to the Intel 2020 MB pro. Just on principle having to spend extra money for hub and fancy cables for basic functionality is pissing me off.

And in case anyone is wondering: was able to daisy chain the LG monitors (4K Ultrafine) and power to the Intel Laptop with absolutely no problem smh. Hopefully M2 will solve this problem

Like many waiting to see if the next M1 machine supports multi-monitors natively to overcome this mess. Certainly is a downside to M1.

Default Getting display to work

I have a Kensington SD4700P with DisplayLink and I am trying to add 2 additional monitors to a Macbook Pro M1 chip. I downloaded the DisplayLink business manager and I enabled the screen recording as instructed. And I have also downloaded and installed the login screen extension and it is showing that it is installed. The second monitor that is plugged into the displayport is still not turning on. I'm not sure what I am missing with it?

What is the hardware you tried (dock make and model, monitor and laptop)?

There seems to be a USB issue as the dock is not present. As the dock is not present, the app does not talk to the dock and does not send pixels to it.
If that is the correct assumption of what is taking place, any other USB3 (and potentially USB2 too) device connected to the dock would not work either, and they are not driven by DisplayLink Manager or DisplayLink chip.
Can you confirm/infirm?
Regards, Alban

No issues with Magic Mouse here

The warning about your screen being viewed is known. Not a problem.
