I am running a Laptop Dock at the same workstation, and everything is connected via USB and HDMI switches in order to go easily back and forth between the desktop and laptops. In an effort to make it even easier, I am interested in tying the NUC to the Laptop Dock as well, but I am unsure if the USB 3.0 out from the laptop dock will be capable of transmitting the video information out. Is it possible to do that? Do I need to enable, or disable something in the BIOS at startup ?
Hope this helps,
I do believe that I follow you. THe dock which I selected for my laptops is the Diamond Multimedia, an it has worked with my MacBook and Acer VivoBook (W10) through USB-C to USB Type-B, and my Chromebook is doing it via USB 2.0.
I was curious, because the Chromebook was a bit of a surprise. I do not own any USB 3.0 Type A to Type B cables yet, and I was interested in only purchasing some if that was a possibility.
It probably would not be a good idea to put more stress on the NUC is doing that is the caveat. I have two seperate switches as well - one for HDMI and one for USB, and that seems also to work quite well for me. So, perhaps I will keep it at that.
