    second monitor via USB (Tablet Dell XPS 18)


    Hello @ll

    I have here a Dell XPS 18 tablet, which is some kind of all in one pc and tablet (18''). It can be used as stand-alone tablet as well as attached on a powered stand with keyboard/mouse.

    Now I wanted to use it with a projector or second screen, which is a bit annoying. Following scenarios have been tried out already:
    • connected with a lenovo USB 3.0 dock/port replicator 0A33970,
      works fine with the software included. However, I do not want to carry the dock with me, it is bulky and needs power
    • connected with a Lenovo USB-to-DVI Monitor Adapter. A nice, small and lightweight adapter. But, that one does not work, even with sofware installed.


    Does anyone have an idea what the problem could be? It is proven that it works, but not with the device I wanted Is there a hidden function/system adjustment that I needed to know?

    Thanks for any help!

    btw. Dell support does not answer so far...

    One thing it doesn't mention on the product page is Windows 8 compatibility.
