Mac mini 2018 and Dell Ultrasharp U2719D Monitor

Hi

I have a great Mac mini 2018 (with 32Gb RAM) and a LG27 screen connected by USB3 working beautifully at 4k.  I now also have a Dell U2719 screen that I would like to connect as a 2nd screen but no cables seem to work - neither mini dislay (with apple USB-C convertor to address the mac mini) or USB-C.  Can anyone advise on what could get both working together?

    I know the 2719 is only HDMI 1.4, but have you tried that?

    Thanks so much Mike

    I just dug out some old (gold plated!) HDMI male leads and the Dell has come to life now alongside my LG27 - perfect.

    I better cancel my eBay bids now for the old stallwart Thunderbolt Display which are still holding high values 2nd hand.

    Much appreciated.
