Is it possible to get [email protected] output over USB-C 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1, 5 Gbits/s) through either DP or HDMI?

I'm worried about bandwidth and frying my laptop/monitor ports, but this is the only option I have, since my laptop has no DP and only HDMI 1.4.

To clarify, the USB-C port on my laptop is not Thunderbolt, and I can't find documentation on whether it has DP Alt-mode.

How do I know if the cable I order is suitable for PD for laptops? All the different standards boggle my head.

Do I look at the 3.1 type B or does it has to say something like "PD compatible" ?

This cable is the biggest confusing standard in tech history.

Hi,

I recently ordered this cable on Amazon to connect my phone (Huawei P20 lite) to my TV, via HDMI cable. The TV is an old 2009 model LG 42LF2500-ZA, however despite Amazon saying that the cable is compatible with Huawei, it doesn't work.

Do I need another adaptor to convert the newer USB signal to an older version of HDMi perhaps, Any suggestions??

Much appreciated

My searches have turned up plenty of people charging the switch in handheld mode with this cable and the included charger, but I have a monoprice usbif approved charger that works with the switch in docked mode, and it'd be nice to replace the monoprice cable I bought with it with something longer, lighter, and more flexible.

Hi everyone!

It's about 1 and a half year I have been looking for this. It all started when I bought a Samsung TabPro S, my first device with USB-C. I have tried multiple "cheap" USB-C hubs, like the Aukey one for 40€. Many of them had flickering problems with HDMI, others wouldn't charge, in some cases USB ports would not work.

But what irritated me most was the fact that they all had a very short USB-C cable. I am talking about the end that goes into the tablet.

So, here I am asking you if you know a USB-C hub with a detachable cable which would work with a USB-C cable long about 2 metres and which should have at least:

  • 1 HDMI PORT
  • 1 PD port
  • 3 USB 3.0 ports

My budget is about 100€. I was looking to spend less but I guess these hubs are expensive. Still, I'd like to avoid the 300$ ones and I'd like to be sure it will work flawlessly with my Galaxy Book 12. I'd really like to be able to connect the tablet with a single cable when O am home, with the hubs and all the cables hidden behind the monitor.

I am from Italy, so I am looking for a device which is available in Europe.

Thank you all!

Hello,

I’m having trouble obtaining correct speeds connecting my camera (GH5) to my computer (Dell XP’s 15). The usb c port on the camera is 3.1 gen 1, and my computer has a thunderbolt 3 usb c port. I am using a usb c 3.1 gen 1 cable but I’m only getting around 30 Mbps transfer speeds when it should be much higher. Am I doing something wrong here? Do I need a usb c to thunderbolt 3 cable to get proper transfer speeds?

I know there are other places to post this, but I couldn’t seem to find an answer anywhere. Maybe somebody has a suggestion here for me.

Thanks
