i have two Thinkvision P27h monitors, daisy chained with display port cablets to a Thinkpad Ultra usb-c dock and a new X1 Carbon laptop.
I set the two monitors to USC-C Always On. However, although I get power in the monitors' powered usb ports, I don't get any usb functionality. Is this because the usb ports require a usb connetion to the docking station? Or is there some way I can get the usb ports to work while using the DP cables?
I assume I can't daisy chain the monitors by using a usb-c from the dock to monitor 1 and then DP from monitor 1 to monitor 2? Can I connect use both a usb-c cable and DP cable to monitor 1?
