Lion and Diamond USB BVU195

Has anyone been able to get this to work with lion? Once i upgraded, all i see is a blank screen on the monitor plugged into the Diamond USB. The monitor recognizes the connection but its just pumping out a black screen.

Wait for a driver for Lion is the only advice I can give you.

Can you post this to Diamond's support? I'll do the same.

Please let us know if you find a driver that works.

I actually found a solution. If you go to the displaylink web site which makes the drivers they have a beta for lion.

Thanks for the heads up.

I found the solution here:

It was a pain to register / etc just to download, but after doing so and installing, everything works correctly.

Thanks again

Lag trouble

Anybody else notice some extreme lag when using this product? I've had a ton of lag in both Windows 7 and OSX Snow Leopard and Lion, but I've scoured the internet and found zero posts of other users reporting lag issues.

Lion and Diamond USB BVU195

I had the same issue with BVU195 and Lion. The monitor was just black and would not work. I called Diamond support and they did not have any solutions. Finally, I upgraded to Mountain Lion, installed the 1.8 DisplayLink drivers and it worked.

This is still buggy for me, the driver seemed to help a little bit - but the screen constantly flickers with anything that has changing content. The only thing that seems to help is having that screen available for email where content hardly changes...

Yes I also have had a lot of lag with this product. Not sure what else I can do...
