@purism And here's the connected to a usb-c hub that has a keyboard/mouse connected via usb and driving the external screen via dp-alt-mode. Needs some hacks still but we're getting there:

@agx @purism , That's awesome!

Do you have any idea what will be the max resolution supported by DisplayPort alt-mode on the Librem 5? That question came up on the Purism forum last year.


@amosbatto @purism with an adapter that can use all 4 DP lane pairs we should be able to get up to 4k@60Hz , the 'regular' hubs only uses 2 lane pairs (4k@30Hz) - but my screens have way lower resoluiton so that's not tested yet.

@agx @purism, I checked the i.MX 8M Quad data sheet and it says that it only supports DisplayPort 1.3 with a max resolution of 4K at 30fps. Still nice to know that 4K is theoretically possible. I was only expecting 1080p video, so I will be happy if we can get anything higher than that.

@amosbatto @purism my data sheet says @60Hz so looking forward to try that on a suitable screen.
