Finally you can Remove monitor detection !
On Windows, Mac OS and Linux, you can remove the problematic monitor auto-detection in extended or single display modes.
The computer detects when a TV/monitor is ‘turned off’ or ‘switched’ to another input. Then when powered-on or switched back, it gives the wrong resolution or breaks your extended display to reflect the single monitor, there may even be crashes and other issues.
Our hardware solution, the “MDK device” is a male to female modified adapter with integrated circuitry.
Now, the computer/device won’t receive a signal telling it the monitor is offline, thus avoiding any issues.
Here’s a quick demo:
For many, this is is a real nuisance and there is no way around it.
This annoying behavior can happen in many situations, here’s a few:
- You want to power-off or switch a monitor’s input, without compromising your resolution settings when you power-on/switch back
- You want to power-off or switch a monitor’s input, without compromising your extended desktop session when you power-on/switch back
- Your monitor goes into ‘sleep mode’ and breaks your extended session or simply returns with a bad screen resolution on a single monitor or simply crashes
There is unfortunately no OS setting or registry key that can change, delete or disable monitor auto-detection.
Here’s some info about the MDK unit:
- The unit has Male to Female HDMI connections
- Adapters can be added if you’re not on HDMI
- Your monitor/s will be automatically identified by the computer because we do not alter any of the HDMI functionality and the device will last forever
- There are no batteries required
- There are actual components soldered in the unit by a professional electrical engineer
- The EDID (Extended Display Identification Data) is still transmitted with our device
- There is no loss of HDMI functionality or fidelity
- Works with DisplayPort also, just add your own (DisplayPort to HDMI) adapter first before the MDK device
- The units have been successfully tested with 4K monitors (30Hz)
- Our solution is extremely useful for signage displays and video walls
- The MDK device can also be used with an audio-video receiver and other streaming hardware
- It can be applied to an active hdmi splitter
Depending on your hardware, you may just need one MDK device.
If you are on a dual/extended monitor set-up, test by turning off the primary monitor. If the contents don’t transfer to the secondary screen then you may just need a single one to the secondary monitor.
However, if you are on an extended desktop (more than one monitor) and want to play it safe, we suggest you get two and profit from free shipping.
Just install the MDK device on the computer’s HDMI port [not on the monitor side], that’s it!… there is nothing else to set, no driver or setting is required.
Purchase the ‘MDK’ device here:
for 2 devices (recommended with extended display)… click on the little arrow below.
We also sell the devices on ebay.
Note: There is no advantage when buying from ebay. Due to seller fees, it’s also more expensive with ebay.
We ship worldwide.
Each MDK device is tested to assure it’s functionality before shipping.
Each package is shipped the next day after purchase, excluding week-ends.
