ThinkVision P27h-20 daisy-chaining

2021-02-19, 14:00 PM

Daisy Chaining ThinkVision P27h is pain in the neck. I have spent a full day trying out different possibilities but nothing is working. At most I was able to chain them only in mirror mode but not in extended mode. I specially bought these monitors for daisy chaining and hub system but this is a huge disappointment. 

 

Details:

 2 x ThinkVision P27h-20 

 

Monitor1: Connected to Lenovo think pad E480 vis USB-C

Monitor2: DP-in to DP-out (Monitor1)

 PS: DP 1.2 option on OSD can only be activated for on monitor only at a time.

Hello arslanadeel,

 


Greetings

 

 

E480 product specs sheet shows : 
Supports up to 2 independent displays via native display and 1 external monitor
supports external monitor via HDMI® (up to 1920x1080@60Hz)

 

You may check the Product Specifications reference:

https://psref.lenovo.com/Product/ThinkPad/ThinkPad_E480

 

You can try a different laptop variant if this option would allow extending it.

Otherwise , you may try having the other monitor directly connected via USB C or use converters.

You can use a cable with DisplayPort connectors, an adapter, or a multi-port hub, depending on your daisy monitor.

 

 


Regards,

you need to enable  the daisy-chain / MST option  on the first monitor in the chain.

Guys, on Thinkvision P27h-20 sometimes the Daisy Chain option is turned off. You have to turn it On in order for multiple monitors to work in extended mode.
