Anker Aluminium USB C to HDMI Adapter not working on Macbook Pro 2017

Hello together,

I bought the Anker Aluminium USB C to HDMI Adapter at Amazon ( to connect my MacBook Pro 2017 to an external HDMI Display.
The external display(s) will not be recognized!

I tried two different displays with different HDMI cables. Also I tried to reboot and different connections at the Mac - nothing.

Please help!!

Sound likes a possibly defective adapter. You could try changing the screen resolution of your Macbook to see if it gives the external display a kick into action but failing that I would suggest you drop an email to with your serial, purchase date and troubleshooting steps taken for assistance under your 18 month warranty.

Thank you for your response.
Changing the resolution did not lead to success.

I will fix it by Amazon.

Unfortunately all new MacBooks (usb c) don’t work well with third party adaptors.
I think it’s an apple side problem, I never had problems with Anker stuff, but with my new MacBook 15 with touch bar it’s a very annoying thing.

I tried a lot of adaptors and Hub but no ones work well.
