External Monitor not Working

Where did you see that it supported USB-C Alternate mode DisplayPort?

I wish vendors where much clearer in their descriptions.
The manual says it uses "full-function USB-3.1 Type-C."  The Amazon listing for the touch-screen version says "In order to realize the touchscreen functions or single-cable power-data use, the connected devices (including smartphones and tablets) must support DisplayPort over Alternative Mode (DP ALT-MODE)." Which I took to mean that was the mode this device used.

I purchased it slightly used off eBay, which did not specify the type of USB-C connection, and of course, I didn't realize there was a difference until after I plugged it in and had to research why it wasn't working.

I suppose there's no way to change what the Pinebook uses....
