My Plugable USB 2.0 Adapter runs just fine on a Dell machine with Vista. On my Sony VAIO with XP, it mirrors the screen and streams video, but only until I switch to full screen mode. AT that point, the streaming continues on the laptop, but the television screen goes blank. If the cursor is on the large screen, moving it will “erase” the blank, revealing the last image from the stream that was on the large screen. (THe effect is much like an etch-a-sketch.) It also appears that this problem occurs with any Netflix stream, but I haven’t been able to verify this. The video adapter for this computer is the NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS, and the monitors are all set to run 32 bit. I’ve updated the DisplayLink driver. ANy suggestions?
Also, is there a way to get into the Display Link manager without having the external monitor plugged in? REason I ask is that in trying to troubleshoot this, I switched to Extend mode, and the result was a blannk (blue) screen on the laptop and a very low resolution desktop on the television. The task bar doesn’t appear on the tv, so I can’t get back into the manager to switch back to mirror mode. So at this point, unless I can get into the manager or otherwise revert to mirror, I can’t do much of anything.
