The unit doesn't support HDMI, but a mini-displayport monitor connection should be fine. When such a monitor is connected, it should be shown in the Windows display settings - and you may have to activate it in 'extended desktop mode'.

In April we had the same problems with my CC 1:
    We tried four different cables on the display port, which all worked fine with a laptop.
    We called WACOM Support team and ended up with nothing.
    Finally we had to use an IPad pro for the presentation.
I have never used the display port before so I have no idea if it ever worked.
