The OnePlus 5 sadly does not support it, it only has USB2.0 and iirc somewhere in the spec sheet on the OnePlus website it's also stated it won't work

I have an anker and an apple usb-c converter, I'll try them both tomorrow.

Same on the HTC 10 everyone thought it didnt work but it did. My money is on it working

Well test tomorrow for sure.

OK some bad news.

Just tried my Anker https://www.amazon.co.uk/d/USB-Hubs/...ker+usb-c+hdmi

And my Apple USB-C to HDMI https://www.amazon.co.uk/d/50t/Apple...+usb-c+to+hdmi

Neither of them even pass through current, which is really really bad, i'm livid as I sometimes play games in work on my monitor when it's really quiet.

So so so bad on Oneplus' part here, this is the first big problem i've had, means you can't stream low latency to your TV using a cable? Wtf would you remove that feature?

Woeful behaviour.

PS: If anyone thinks that wireless streaming is on par with a direct line to your phone for the likes of gaming or even watching movies, you're wrong.

Annoyed the hell out of me that has.

Would this suggest that it can be modified, USB-C is USB-C? Could this be enabled do you think? Hate it when features are removed for no good reason

Ok so just added this line to the buildpro in /system

com.qc.hdmi_out=true

This actually allows the power to pass through but does nothing for output, both adapters now allow juice to pass through, i'll keep digging, there must be a way to allow this.

OK so after a little digging i've found that the VESA DisplayPort Alternate Mode may be an option should it be supported? Uses display link

Ok we could use the chromecast which for video is just about ok, but for perfect lip sync and gaming? Forget about it, it's a sub par peripheral which just can't cut it.

I just so happen to have a display link adapter in work so i'll be testing this on Monday. Personally I can't see it but will try.

For streaming it'll be fine..but for any kind of gaming you'll need to have TV out via a cable..60hz 1080p, completely abysmal that it's been left out.
