The cRIO is working, connected to a monitor (VGA), and the NI-TSM was working over VGA connected to my laptop.
When connecting the cRIO to the TSM using VGA, it only works if the monitor is on, then the cRIO is started. I have no idea why but I can deal with that.
On the production machine, the cRIO is connected to the TSM DisplayPort. The TSM doesn't seem to automatically switch inputs, so I plugged it into my laptop VGA, then on the OSD menu switched the input to DP. Now the screen won't display anything, even when going through the old process of starting the cRIO after the monitor. Furthermore, it won't automatically switch back to VGA, so I'm stuck in DP mode that won't work with the cRIO.
Anyone got any experience of using the TSM? I'm very confused as to why it doesn't work like any other monitor.

Before I investigate further into your issue, I’d be grateful if you could provide/clarify the following details, so that I may better address the problem:
This article might be useful if you happen to be using third-party display adaptors in your set-up:
These articles maybe somewhat useful to you as well, although it is geared towards PXI/PXIe controllers rather than cRio controllers:
Thank you and I look forward to your reply.
