Hello. I just received my picopix max today. It’s awesome! I just want to know if connecting the laptop to the projector should just be plug & play. I connected my Microsoft surface book w it using the usb-C cable. But the screen is just green and says “no signal”. Do I need to adjust settings or install something to connect w my laptop? Please help.
This is an annoying part about USB-C cables. It’s not always obvious which ones do support video/SuperSpeed USB and which ones do not.
How is the USB billboard setup in the PPM? The only mode supported on the USB-C video input port on the PPM is HDMI alt mode, correct? No DP or anything like that, and no USB communication apart from USB 2.0 billboard?
I tried connecting GPDWIN2, but it was displayed as no signal and could not be used
As for the cable, I tried the attached cable and the cable of the mobile monitor, but neither of them output video as well
GPDWIN2 supports alternate mode (Alt mode)
I have issues connecting USB-C from surface book 3 to the PPM, in laptop the usb detecting the PPM every 15 seconds. The USB appears and disappears every 15 seconds also seems unable to load the drivers properly.
I used the cable provided by Phillips, any solution or fix plz
If that dongle is a straight USB-C HDMI alt mode dongle at least that confirms that your USB-C port supports the required signaling. Do you happen to have the dongle part number available? I just want to confirm that it isn’t a DisplayLink-based dongle.
I haven’t received my unit just yet, looks like it’s scheduled on the April 11th flight.
As @IvoGrijt points out your machine simply isn’t capable of HDMI alt-mode on its USB-C port. This is a common issue with USB-C, wildly varying support. USB4 aims to rectify some of those issues, requiring all hosts to support DisplayPort alt-mode on all downstream-facing ports. That’ll help some but not in the PPM case as the PPM doesn’t understand DP alt-mode but requires HDMI alt-mode. This whole USB-C chaos will take quite a few years to iron out…
You should have received a billboard popup stating that your USB-C port isn’t supported when the device fails to enter its alternate mode, but I’m not sure how Windows actually deals with that.
