Thank you for your answer. I asked my question because on  
I found the folowing information:
"Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7, or later required, with 2 Ghz dual core 
or better CPU recommended. Mac and Linux are not supported at this time 
(only beta-level USB graphics drivers are available for these platforms, 
without sufficient support for motion video). USB graphics devices with 
drivers from different chipset vendors (MCT, SMSC, DisplayLink, etc.) 
should not be mixed on the same system."
But I hope that only relates Windows. Or maybe I'm wrong? I'm asking 
because I prefer HDMI output.
