Does the USB-C on the HP ENVY x360 M6 support video out for USB-C Docking Stations that support (HDMI) video thru the USB-C port?
- I am looking to add two monitors to my laptop to extend my desktop (Not Mirror)
- cant seem to find anything in the HP manuals that tell you if the USB-C port on this device supports video output
Thanks in advance for your help

I am looking for a similar answer. Found this post:
Not sure what they ended buying to make it work. I need an adapter or hub/dock that has 2 HDMI inputs to extend monitors to the same laptop you have. (W2K44UA#ABA)

After several attempts to get an answer on whether the USB-C port would support dual displays in extended mode, I went old school for an adapter that I was able to confirm worked to extend to external displays via USB3.0.
Solution: I used my USB.3.0 port to connect a USB Display using a StarTech USB32HD2 dual HDMI Adapter.
I have 2 X 27-inch SCEPTER monitors. They are running at 1920X1080P.thru the StarTech adapter via HDMI connections. I have them running through a powered USB 3.0 Hub.
I am still able to use my laptop monitor as a separate monitor in the extended mode as well. (NOT MIRRORED).
Yep, I now have three separate monitors working on my desk in extended mode. StarTech makes several adapter models and I got immediate phone support from StarTech when I called the help desk (only once).
Got the adapter on Amazon and the shipping was the next day as promised. I am not using this for games, so if that is your intent, please check the specs, etc for the StarTech Adapter. No issues after using it for a month and far cheaper than many of the other USB Adapters on the market.
I still have no clue if the USB-C port on this laptop is capable of supporting two monitors in and Extended Mode. Good luck on getting that answer.
Hope this helped.

I was able to successfully extend my dual monitors (HP 22ers x2) using the USB3.1 port with the following adapter/mini dock:
So far, so good! I am happy to know the USB 3.1 does support video. It was a matter of getting the correct peripheral.
Note: I did download the current driver from the j5create site PRIOR to plugging the dock in my USB port.
