Not a great workaround, but I am able to get three external monitors by connecting 2 display port monitors (HDMI monitors using a DP to HDMI adapter) to the Dell dock connected to one USB-C port and then plug the third HDMI monitor (through a cheap Amazon USB-C dock) to the other USB-C port.

Works on my M2 Macbook Air, but uses both USB-C/Thunderbolt ports. (Ventura)

Same here.

Model: MacBook Air M2 2023
macOS: Sonoma 14.0
Dockstation: Dell D6000S (USB-C)
DisplayLink Manager: 1.10

Only 2 out of 3 monitors are working.
Monitor 1: Dell P2422HE - Works via DisplayPort
Monitor 2: Dell P2422H - Works via DisplayPort
Monitor 3: Dell P2422H - Not working via HDMI

When I unplug 1 or 2, then 3 works. But can't get all of them to work at the same time.

Default I found a workaround!

I found a "dumb" workaround.

I plugged the third monitor directly on-to my Macbook Air via USB-C cable. I tried both with DP-USB-C cable and with a USB-C--USB-C cable (my monitor also has USB-C out) and it works. So the setup is:

Macbook Air M2 2023:

- USB-C port 1 goes to D6000 that goes to Monitor 1 and Monitor 2
- USB-C port 2 goes to Monitor 3

Not ideal, but it works. Hope this helps anyone else.

Default Workaround

Hi, i have the same issue. I changed my MacBook Pro M1 by a MacBook Pro M2 and the Dell Dock D6000 not recognizes anymore the third monitor conected by HDMI.

The workaround is connect the third monitor by HDMI (use an adapter if only have USB-C ports) into the other port of the mac

If this problem is fixed in another version of Displaylink please let me known

M2/M3 chips definitely supports Alt-mode. I tried these three docks with my M3 Macbook Pro and my 3 plugged displays works great:

MOKIN 3 display

WAVLINK triple 4K 12-in-1
- https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B0C4P2JL1J/r

ANKER 10 in 1

The issue is with the Dell D6000. HDMI works great with M1 but not M2 and M3 macbooks.
