Connect two external displays

HP Spectre X360 15-bl001na
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello, 

 

I just bought the HP Spectre X360 15-bl001na and I want to connect it to my two externals LG monitors. Both are 1920x1080 and I want also the laptop screen to be active when I connect the monitors. I hope this is possible.  The monitors have HDMI ports. 

I have an HDMI splitter that I connect to the laptop HDMI port but only one monitor works that way. I suppose I need to connect the other monitor trough the USB 3.1 Type C port, using an HDMI converter? If yes, can I use this adaptor for example: http://www.emag.ro/adaptor-usb-3-0-tip-c-hdmi-multiport-4k-power-delivery-digitus-da-70838/pd/D7TL2D... and from the adaptor USB Type-C port can I connect this to have also Gigabit
Chipset Realtek  active: http://www.pcgarage.ro/hub-uri-usb/sharkoon/3-port-usb-30-plus-rj45-gigabit-aluminium-hub-type-c-bla... ?

 

Looking forward your answers.

 

Thank you!

Gabriel

Yes you seem to have found parts that will work. One monitor from the HDMI port on the laptop one monitor with the USB-C to HDMI adapter and then the USB-C passthrough to a USB 3.0 and ethernet adapter.

I don't have your model on hand. I have a Spectre 13-v ("worlds thinnest") and I can connect to 2 external screens with the 2 USB-C ports and the laptop screen stays active. It should work for you.

Connect two external displays

I am a Visual Studio developer and just got  a Spectre x360 this summer and have been going through hell trying to connect two monitors.

The question I have with the solution is : 

- right side I have 2 USB-C Thunderbolt connectors. One charging and other other a hub with HDMI  and many othe connection incl. Ethernet.  The monitor works here.

 

- left side I have a USB 3.x port.  Here, if I understand correctly,  I just need to attach a USB 3.0 to HDMI connector ?

 

Sorry to be so picky, but it is difficult trying to figure this out from the linked sites and images.

Many thanks in advance

Here's the way I do it. Both external monitors have HDMI. One is connected directly to the HDMI port, the other through a Type-C to HDMI cable. That Has also a USB output and another type-c USB. 

In this way, µI have the extra USB type-c for charging/network.

I hope this helps.

how about a port replicator, would that work for extending across two monitors, OR do I need to use the two different ports on the laptop

I managed to connect two touchscreen monitors to my HP Spectre X360 without issue but when I tried to use the touchscreen, only one would work. I've been trying for years to find a solution but to no avail. If anyone is able to help, I would be very much in your debt.
