A Closer Look
Installing and Using the Adaptor
Connect the USB cable to your computer and then to the adaptor – when it is powered the green light will be illuminated. You can then connect the HDMI cable to the other end of the adaptor (as you can see below):
Installing the driver software is simple – for Windows you just pop in the CD and follow the steps.
A new icon appears in the Task tray.
From here you can run the DisplayLink Manager, check for updates, optimize for video, fit the image to TV and make advanced configuration changes.
In my case there were no updates to the software.
To use it then is as simple as choosing whether you want to use your second monitor in either extended mode (which creates an extension to your desktop) or whether you want to use it in clone/mirror mode (which basically creates a clone of your desktop – very useful if you are giving presentations).
