    I'm going to do exactly that.

    I've not touched these settings apart from the undervolt.

    I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask this (as it may be BIOS related), but:

    When I use USB type C adapters with HDMI output capabilities, I get no display signals through the HDMI port.

    Here's the adapter in question: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B075R28DVM

    All other ports work.

    This is on the Eurocom Q6. In the BIOS, I saw no options for DDI control, which in the past, have solved display detection behind Thunderbolt (and Type C) ports.

    I think the device/hub works in passive mode instead of active mode.
    I might be wrong here, so I'm not entirely sure.
    Does usb c to dp work flawlessly?

    I cannot test if USB C to DP works flawlessly at the moment. I have no adapter to test this with.

    Should I get a USB type C to DP hub, I'll definitely test.

    Here's a little treat for some of you.
    SAGER NP9175 (CLEVO P775TM-G) / SAGER NP9155 (CLEVO P750TM1-G) BIOS
    Flash BIOS at your own risk. I'll try to help if you have questions.

    EDIT: Got this straight from Sager, for those wondering. Please don't ask me to upload more, the only reason I got my hands on this particular BIOS is because I have the NP9175 ;)
    If you need BIOS files for a different model, just email Sager and ask.

    I'm glad I found this thread. Ton of good info in here. I've got a p650rs-g (p65_67RSRP) with BIOS version "American megatrends inc 1.05.07RNS1, 1/7/2017" I've been having issues with this laptop since I bought it in jan of 17. Bios update is my next test. Anyone know of an update? I went back a few pages and didn't see anything posted. If someone knows the page number I could find that I'd be content with that as well. Thanks in advance!

    support.4@xoticpc I saw your post and I would ask you guys but I don't want to impose as I purchased this from HIDevolution. My relationship with them went really sour so now I'm hitting the forums

    Eurocom support got back to me and stated that on the Q6, no display port lanes are present on their USB type C implementation. So that's a no as support for HDMI goes on this hub.

    Have you encountered any of the EC/KBC problems that I've outlined previously? It's a really strange, frustrating problem.

    There's something I can't quite wrap around my head.

    Take a look at this:

    [​IMG]

    That's the south bridge on the Q6.

    See that audio controller labelled "Intel HDMI Audio"?

    Note that this, despite being an Optimus notebook, has its' external displays (one HDMI connector + dual miniDP ports) driven by the NVIDIA GPU and the inbuilt display driven by the Intel GPU:

    [​IMG]

    Now here's what baffles me the most:

    (a). To what device is the Intel HDMI audio device connected to then? Eurocom confirmed that this machine carries no display lanes over USB type C, because if that were the case, I'd expect the Intel GPU to drive the display over USB type C. This was the case in the older MSI GS43VR 6RE.

    (b). Could this also be the name of the PCH Audio codec? The same that drives the embedded Realtek ALC1220?

    (c). Could it be an entry point for an LSPCon converter?

    Why it's exposed in the device chain yet no display lanes exist over USB type C on this SKU is what I can't explain.


    This is confusing.

    Does this BIOS have xHCI disable or USB 3.0 controller disable?
