1. Introduction
1. Introduction
This USB to HDMI® Adapter enables you to connect one more monitor, LCD or projector to
a computer with a USB 2.0 port. For desktop users adding an extra monitor via USB
connection is easier than ever without having to open the computer chassis to install an
internal video card. Once the installation is done, the USB-attached monitor soon wakes up.
No function key hassle to swap a second monitor. Meanwhile, it adds on overscan scaling
function that allows you to adjust the monitor screen size.
With this handy adapter, you can enjoy many benefits brought by an add-on monitor. The
most obvious one is that you get more desktop area to have more applications visible at
one time. For example, you may work on one monitor while your family watching video on
the other. No more stacking windows within the confines of a single display. Or you may
span an application, e.g. spreadsheets, across two sides of displays. What’s more, the
adapter is hot pluggable. If you are not using the extra monitor, just unplug the adapter at
any time; no reboot needed.
System performance is an important issue when using multiple monitors. Another benefit of
this adapter is that it uses little computer resource; ensuring users get quality display
without comprising computer performance.

still pans to the add-on monitor and it’s possible that your cursor has moved to
the extended desktop so that you cannot find it on the primary display. To solve
the problem in such a case, connect the add-on monitor to the adapter or keep
moving your mouse to try or unplug the adapter first to restore the cursor.
Video and DVD Playback in Extened Mode

Manually Setting
In mirror mode, the adapter will automatically select the settings (screen resolution, color
quality and refresh rate) for the add-on monitor. But you can manually adjust the settings as
required. However, the settings of the add-on monitor are limited by that of the primary
monitor. For example, even though your add-on monitor supports a resolution of up to
1920x1080, you can only configure it to use 1280x1024 due to the primary monitor only
supports a resolution of up to 1280x1024.
Be the Primary Monitor
To make the add-on monitor the primary display:
1.
Position the mouse anywhere on your computer desktop, right-click and select
Screen Resolution on Windows 7, Personalize > Display Settings on Windows
Vista or Properties > Settings on Windows XP.
2.
In the Display drop-down menu, select the option ends with DisplayLink
Graphics Adapter.
3.
Check the This is my main monitor box on Windows 7/ Windows Vista or Use
this device as the primary monitor box on Windows XP.
On some PCs and laptops it is necessary to disable the main display (i.e. uncheck
the Extend the desktop onto this monitor or Extend my Windows desktop
onto this monitor box for the main display) as part of the same settings change.
4.
Click OK to close the settings screen.
The add-on monitor stays primary if the PC enters hibernate or suspend mode or is
rebooted. If the add-on monitor is unplugged, the main display becomes primary again.
3. Using the Adapter
Adjusting Resolution, Color Depth and Refresh Rate
There are three components that make up the screen mode:
Resolution: In common usage, this refers to the number of pixels displayed on screen
horizontally and vertically.
Color Depth: This defines the number of different colors that can be shown on the screen
at the same time.
Refresh rate: Measures the speed that the entire screen is rescanned. Higher frequencies
reduce flicker.
Some monitors advertise the supported modes through the video connector. If this is the
case, the adapter identifies the supported modes from the monitor. If the monitor does not
advertise the supported modes, the adapter software chooses a set of common screen
modes for the monitor.
The software supports the modes listed below.

USB to HDMI® Adapter User’s Manual
About the resolutions and refresh rates available to users
The resolutions and refresh rates available to the user through Windows are a
comprise of the support from the following elements:
■ The
USB display adapter
■ The
primary monitor and the add-on monitor
■ The
primary video card on your computer and installed drivers
Therefore, for example, if your monitor doesn’t support a resolution of
1920x1080, then 1920x1080 is not possible even you are using a USB display
adapter with 1920x1080 support. This ensures that the monitor cannot be put
into an unsupported mode, which might damage it.
If cloning the primary display, the video component will try to use the preferred monitor
mode. In some cases, this may not be the most appropriate mode for the cloned desktop. It
is recommended that the primary display resolution be changed to closer match the default
resolution of the add-on monitor.
Configure the components
To configure the three components (resolution, color depth and refresh rate) of a screen
mode, follow these steps:
Easy Setting
Click on the DisplayLink Device icon and select Color Quality; Screen Rotation; Screen

29
USB to HDMI® Adapter User’s Manual
Standby and Hibernate, Shut Down and Restart
When the adapter is connected to a computer and an external monitor, if the computer
goes into standby or hibernate mode, the external monitor display goes blank.
When the computer returns to an active state, the external monitor display keeps the same
settings it had before the computer went into standby or hibernate mode. However, if the
add-on monitor was set for extended mode, windows that were previously on the external
monitor will not move back to that secondary monitor. Also, if the add-on monitor is in
extended mode and the computer requires a login after standby or hibernate mode, the
login screen appears on the primary computer monitor, not the external monitor.
If the computer is shut down, restarted and logged in, again the add-on monitor returns to
the same mode as it was before shutdown.
Inferred Modes
Some modes in the DisplayLink GUI are shown with [ ] around them.
This occurs when connecting a monitor with a preferred mode higher than the maximum
supported resolution of the DisplayLink device.
In this case, the preferred resolution of the monitor cannot be supported. However we add
lower resolutions of the same aspect ratio to be tried with the monitor. Modes in square
brackets [ ] imply that these are modes not reported by the monitor, but have been made
available by the DisplayLink software for you to try.
As these are inferred modes from the preferred mode of the monitor, they are not
guaranteed to work with the display.
3. Using the Adapter
Disconnecting the Adapter
If the adapter is unplugged from the computer, the add-on monitor goes blank. All windows
and icons move to the primary screen.
On reconnection of the adapter, the adapter returns to the same mode as it was before
disconnection. However, windows and icons that were previously on the screen will not be
moved back.
Using Dual Adapters
Up to two adapters can be simultaneously attached to one computer. To use two adapters:
1. Install the driver as described in the “2. Installation” section and connect the first
adapter to your computer.
2. Then connect the second adapter to your computer. The system will automatically
complete the installation.
While two adapters are connected to a computer, in most cases both adapters’ supports
extended and mirror modes. The only exception is on Windows Vista XDDM mode as
described below.
Limitation for dual adapters on Windows Vista/Windows 7 in XDDM mode: In this
mode one extended screen and one mirrored screen is supported. Only the first connected
adapter can be configured to use extended mode; the second adapter is forced to use
mirror mode. When you bring out the Windows display settings dialog box, you will find that
only one …DisplayLink Graphics Adapter (representing your first attached adapter) is
configurable.
31
USB to HDMI® Adapter User’s Manual
What is Vista XDDM mode?
XDDM refers to Windows XP Driver Mode. It is a video card driver mode used
in some legacy computers that running the new generation Windows Vista OS.
It provides an interface similar to Windows XP user Interface on Windows
Vista and one of its characteristics is that it doesn’t support Windows Aero
interface. To see current display video driver mode, right-click Computer on the
desktop and select Device Manager. Then expand the Display adapters item.
3. Using the Adapter
Driver Verification
To verify your USB display adapter driver installation, please launch Device Manager by
the steps below:
Open the Control Panel and double-click Uninstall a Program on Windows 7, Programs
and Features on Windows Vista, and Add or Remove Programs on Windows XP.
A string similar to DisplayLink Core Software and DisplayLink Graphics should be
displayed.
If there is a question or exclamation mark next to that item, then the driver is not properly
installed. Please delete the item, unplug the adapter and repeat the installation steps.
33
USB to HDMI® Adapter User’s Manual
Hardware Verification
After the installation finished, you can go to Device Manager to verify the entire installation.
Under Windows OS: Go to Device Manager to verify the installation. Under the Sound,
video and game controllers, an item USB PnP Sound Device should appear. Under
USB Display Adapters, an item USB HDMI® Adapter should appear.
3. Using the Adapter
Uninstall the Adapter and Driver
If for any reason you want to uninstall the video adapter and its driver, please take these
steps:
1. Open the Control Panel and double-click Uninstall a Program on Windows 7,
Programs and Features on Windows Vista, and Add or Remove Programs on

USB to HDMI® Adapter User’s Manual
4. Troubleshooting
Q1: The display on the add-on monitor is blank.
A: If the monitor power LED is green (in most cases), wait a moment for the monitor to
show the video as sometimes it takes time for the add-on monitor to show the video. You
can also reboot your system to try again. Also make sure the computer is not in standby or
hibernation mode, which will lead the add-on monitor to be blank.
If the monitor power LED is red (in most cases), check if the connection is properly made. If
problem still exists, uninstall the driver, unplug the adapter and reinstall the driver to try
again.
Q2: The add-on monitor is flickering.
A: This is usually caused by a low refresh rate. To solve this problem:

In mirror mode, increase the refresh rate of the main monitor. This will in turn increase
the refresh rate of the add-on monitor.

In extended mode, increase the refresh rate of the add-on monitor.
Q3: When I play MPEG file by Windows Media Player on the extended monitor, how come
the display becomes abnormal when I switch it to full screen mode?
A: If your system is Windows XP SP1, we suggest you upgrade it to SP2 to solve this
problem.
4. Troubleshooting
Q4: When playing the video in full screen mode, the motion is not smooth.
A: Try the following tips to improve the smoothness of the movie playback:
 Reduce the resolution of the display to 640x480 or 800x600.

Use the adapter in extended mode.

Terminate any other CPU intensive applications running on the computer.
If you still have issues playing media content on the adapter, try the following steps:

As some media players require DirectX hardware support to correctly operate, try a
different media player which requires less DirectX support.

Drag the media player to the add-on screen and close the player. Restart the player
and it should open on the add-on monitor. Now try playing the media file again.

Try reducing the hardware acceleration level of the primary display (NOT the add-on
monitor) to levels 1,2 or 3 and restarting the media player. The hardware acceleration
can be found by right-clicking on your desktop and click Properties > Settings >
Advanced > Troubleshoot. Some players use this setting even when playing on a
different display.

The video playback may be unusual when the add-on monitor is mirroring the primary
display and there is another extended screen connected to the computer. The
extended screen must be disabled before the content will be correctly cloned to the
add-on monitor.
Q5: In extended mode, the add-on monitor appears to have a black border around the
desktop.
A: This happens when the resolution used by the add-on monitor is larger than the
resolution used by the primary monitor. To solve this problem, configure the add-on monitor
to use the same resolution as the primary monitor.
Q6: No audio from HDMI® output.
A: To specify a sound playback device in Windows,

Under Control Panel, double-click the Sounds and Audio Devices (or Sounds and
Multimedia) icon and then click the Audio tab.

Select the USB PnP Sound Device as the sound playback device.
