This is Uma . We’ve been using the USB adapters with the DisplayLink software (version 4.6) to connect our computer to TV screens. We use the unique id of USB adapters (e.g USB_0198-xxxxxx) to identify which USB is connected to which TV screen. In a typical application we will have 5 TV’s attached to the PC using the USB adapters. Each of these TV’s is displaying a different set of data to operators at a particular location on a process machine. In the event that an adapter(s) location in the Windows PC changes (ie Display Number 2,3,4,5,6) we need to be able to push the correct data to the proper location.
Lately we received the USB adapter unit with version 5.2 of DisplayLink software. After installing the software and connecting the USB adapters to the PC I couldn’t get the unique id of the adapter, I checked by right-click the desktop à propertiesà select the settings tabà the drop down Display, all the USB adapters are displayed as USB_DVI… Without any unique ID.
Is there a way for us to programmatically (via software) to get the unique identity of the individual adaptors??? Currently we are querying the Windows “Win32_DesktopMonitor” for the location of each Display Number and it’s associated unique ID.
