MLC utilizes the Plugable UD-3900 Dual Display Universal Docking Station in most of the classrooms around campus.
If you are coming on campus to teach or present, you will need to install the appropriate driver package for your operating system:
Install the appropriate driver, restart the machine, then connect the docking station via USB and set your display settings as needed.
If you are using a device with a modern release of Windows 10, the drivers will often install automatically after a short while as long as you are connected to the wireless network on campus. If you run into issues, you can use the above link to install the drivers manually, but it is recommended that you let Windows 10 attempt the install automatically first.
Running macOS 10.13 High Sierra and the docking stations can cause some odd problems. First, you will probably only see your display on the projector or TV. If you try to mirror the display, it will crash the machine and you will need to unplug the docking station to get it working again.
You need to set the display to act independently (extended displays).
You can read more about the issue here. We are hoping a fix will be released in the future.
In order to successfully remove the driver, you will need to follow these instructions (specific to Microsoft Windows right now):
You should now be able to connect the USB cable again and be able to utilize the docking station as needed.
