I'm trying to figure out whether the mini dock 4337 supports triple display configurations. There seems to be confusing information in your documentation:
http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/detail.page?LegacyDocID=MIGR-76617 - This page says that with Optimus enabled systems, triple display configurations are supported.
http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/detail.page?LegacyDocID=MIGR-72871 - This page says "any two of the three video ports can be used simultaneously"
Which one's correct? Or am I reading them wrong? My thinkpad T410 has Optimus enabled.
Second question: Using a DVI cable to connect the mini doc to the external monitor doesn't work. In Ubuntu, it detects the monitor is connected, but cannot send the display (even if I have just ONE monitor connected - via the DVI cable)..

Thank you for your reply.
I have the thinkpad T410 docked. I believe I have Optimus enabled.
Monitor 1: Connected via VGA
Monitor 2: Connected via DVI cable (such as this one: http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4558913&CatId=4465)
I have nothing connected via DisplayPort.
I have tried Windows XP and Ubuntu (12.04 and 12.10).
Ubuntu detects the two external monitors, but is unable to send display to the monitor connected via DVI-D cable.
In fact, even if I disconnect the VGA cable, the monitor connected via the DVI cable doesn't get a display.. Is it the cable?
