    Sorry but no, none of the Nitro 5 series support Video using USB including USB C, the USB C in the Nitro 5 series is USB C 3.1 gen 1 so you are stuck with HDMI or VGA if your model has it

    Thanx very much Andy

    but I couldn’t sell my nitro, it’s too good😁

    and 

    i have found a work around, for my radio at home involving my windows 10 desktop, downgraded to windows 7, and a graphics card from a “highland clearances era” dell 5150,
    i now have  2 screens

    regards

    Thanks for the comment. What USB connector are you using? the USB C or the normal one?
