Macbook Pro 13 in M1
16GB Memory
Two LG Monitors - LG UltraFine 5K Display 27MD5KL
Targus Docking Station with Display Link - DOCK570USZ
Display Link Manager 1.2
USB-C to Displayport adapters (2)
Think i have tried just about everything but cannot get both displays or for that matter just 1 display working thru the docking station, monitor does work by going directly to thunderbolt on Mac. I know the mac is recognizing the docking station as I can see in hardware profile and I can connect a usb bluetooth keyboard to docking station and works fine. Just cannot detect the monitors thru the docking station.
Thanks in advance
Lee

Hi everybody,

same problem here. MacBook Pro 13'' (MacOS 11.4) with M1, and I need a 2nd external monitor.

i-tec docking station: https://i-tec.pro/de/produkt/tb3hdmidockx-3/

i-tec adapter: https://i-tec.pro/de/produkt/tb3dual4khdmi-3/

software: DL Manager 1.4.0 Build 57.120

monitors:
older LG 31,5''
brand new Samsung 32'' L32AM504NUXEN

I've tried EVERY single combination of connecting monitors. Either one or the other monitor will work, both together don't!

I used to love Mac, but I am so fu***** frustrated I'm about to throw that MBP out of the window!

Hello,

You can remove the DisplayLink Manager application. It requires hardware with DisplayLink chips to work.
You will see that the app will say there are no monitors detected because the two products you mention are Thunderbolt (it says "Dockingstation-Technologie: Thunderbolt™3"), and not using DisplayLink technology.
To use DisplayLink Manager, you would need a product with DisplayLink technology. Here is an example from that manufacturer: https://i-tec.pro/de/produkt/cadual4kdockpd-3/ it states "Dockingstation-Technologie: DisplayLink + USB-C PD".

Regards,
Alban

Alban, thanks for that quick reply. I ordered that one right away, hope it works.

I'm still mad at Apple...

Please do not double post the same question.

I have replied to your other post --> https://www.displaylink.org/forum/sh...ad.php?t=67731 and moved it to the Mac section of the forum.

Default Dell WD19 Dock + Dual Dell 24 Inch Monitors

My laptop: Mackbook Pro M1 - 13 inch

Docking Station: Dell WD19

Monitors: Dell 24 Inch - S2421HS

My external monitors show the same mirrored display. It's extended but both displays show the same picture.

Laptop is open and display on laptop is fine.

One monitor is plugged into DisplayPort port.

One monitor is plugged into the back port next to the HDMI port (so, is that the thunderbolt port?) -- It is plugged into a secondary portable USB-C dock and from there connected to HDMI.

Am I plugging into the correct port? Do I need a cable that goes direct from thunderbolt/usb-c to HDMI?

Would really love to make use of both of these lovely monitors!

Thanks!

Hello,

Dell WD19 is also not based on DisplayLink technology. It is based on native USB-C - macOS does not support MST technology and both monitors will always show the same picture on the external monitors.

Would the Dell D6000 work for Macbook Pro M1?
As it uses DisplayLink software, it seems like that might be a solution for me.

My boss bought me the Dell D6000 linked to above in the quote, and two (2) DisplayPort cables. With DisplayLink software installed, I now have TWO WORKING EXTERNAL MONITORS on my MacBook Pro M1 13".

Thanks for the leads and the links. Life is now worth living, LOL.

YAAAASSSSSSSS

PLEASE please tell me how you got your set up to work! My specs:

Dell D6000
MB Pro M1 2020 13" 16 GB memory
2 LG 4k Ultrafine (24MD4KL-B) monitors (2 TB3 ports and 3 USB-C output ports)
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??
