Thinkpad X1 Carbon docking station audio problem

Hi, I have a Thinkpad X1 Carbon 6th Gen which came with the USB-C docking station. I have a USB headset (Logitech), plugged into the docking station, which I use for Skype calls. The laptop runs Win 10 Pro.


The problem is this: I'll start a Skype call with the audio routed to the headset, both speaker and microphone.

The headset is also configured in Windows Control Panel as the default speaker. A minute or so into the call, the speaker audio will drop out and revert to the laptop's built-in sound card. Even though Skype is set to route the audio to the headset, the audio doesn't make it to the headset, it just goes out the laptop analog audio.


I get the idea that this is a problem with the DisplayLink driver for the docking station. I tried updating the driver but it says that I have the latest version (even though it's dated 2006?!?). 


Any ideas?  Thanks!
