The HyperDrive Dual 4K HDMI Adapter and Hub (HDM1/HDM1H) requires a driver application to run dual external displays for M1/M2 MacBooks.
To set-up the HyperDrive Hub/Adapter correctly, please follow the instructions carefully below:
1. Connect the HyperDrive Hub/Adapter to your Mac computer.
2. A "HYPERDISPLY" icon/drive should appear on your desktop screen. If you do not see the icon/drive, it may be located under "Locations" in your Mac's Finder application. (If you are unable to locate the drive, you may have to download the application that comes with the drive manually through our partner's download link. The instructions on how to do so will be listed in the next setup guide.)
3. Click on the icon/drive to open it. Once it is open, launch "macOS InstantView".
4. Once the application is opened, it may ask for screen recording permissions. Approving it enables the application to access the pixels it needs to render a Mirrored or Extended Display. It does not send any pixels or data back to Hyper.
5. To allow the screen recording permissions, open System Preferences and locate "Security and Privacy". Please ensure "macOS InstantView" is check-marked under "Screen Recording" (you may have to unlock the Lock icon to allow changes.
6. Once the permissions are allowed, open "macOS InstantView" through the HYPERDISPLY drive. A Driverless Plug-N-Play application window should appear. Once the application is up and running, you are able to connect any displays via the HDMI ports.
If you are unable to locate the "HYPERDISPLY" drive, please follow the steps below to download the application that is required for dual external displays:
1. Follow the download link to download the latest Display Driver for macOS InstantView. (Download the recommend version for macOS)
2. Once the application is downloaded as a .dmg file, open the downloaded content. A new window should pop up with the instructions, "Please drag macOS InstantView to Applications folder and run it from the Applications folder". Follow those instructions.
3. Click "Open" if this pop-up appears.
4. It will redirect to another pop-up with two options, Open System Preferences and Deny. Select Open System Preferences.
5. Once System Preferences is open, locate Security and Privacy. In Security and Privacy, you will need to make sure that "macOS InstantView is selected/check-marked under "Screen Recording". (You may have to unlock the Lock icon to allow changes)
6. Once it is selected, re-open macOS InstantView. A Driverless Plug-N-Play window should appear. Once the application window is up and running, you are able to connect 2 displays via the HDMI ports.
