I recently got this with the idea of connecting my Windows 10 laptops (Dell XPS and MS Book 2; one for work one for home use) to my monitor via USB-C, because in that way I need to change only 1 connection when I swap a laptop for the other.
Something like this: hub connected to the laptop USB-C port -> hub with mouse, keyboard, SD cards -> hub USB-C port via USB-C cable to monitor.
However, this doesn’t work. There’s no image and the laptop doesn’t even see that there’s an external monitor connected (this happens with or without external power to the hub)
The external monitor works perfectly with this same USB-C cable connected directly to the laptop.
Is this supposed to be supported?
