Whoa. I just plugged in my spdif again, and I'm getting audio. However it is extremely distorted. And I only get audio thru itunes, quicktime and imovie. Dont get any thru Safari or Firefox when on youtube or something. Also the sound effects in Sound Preferences dont play. They play fine when Im using analog connection, but for some reason I'm only getting the center speaker.

edit:

IT WORKS!

HAHAHA, glorious sound again! Ok, the sound cracking/distortion was absoutely terrible. But on a hunch I went to Audio MIDI setup in Apps/Utils and played around with some settings. I had it set on 2-CH 32bit. I keep the frequency to 48khz, and changed the 2-CH 32bit to 2-CH 16bit. Et Voila, beautiful sound thru Itunes, Imovie, Quicktime, basically all audio.

So if you're getting horrid cracking/distortion make SURE you set the output to a frequency/bitrate your ALC allows.

I have spend many days trying to get voodooHDA to load normally, but am still experiencing semi-random KP at boot time.
This problem only came up after upgrading to 10.6.5 (combo update). On 10.6.4 voodooHDA 2.7.2 had no issues loading.
My main board is x58a-UD5 which has the ALC899 audio chip.

I have tried almost everything I could think of by now:

- removed HDEF injection from dsdt
- flashed bios to latest version
- tried 32 bit booting
- used different chameleon versions
- tried different fakeSMC's

Some observations:

1) I am also getting KP at boot time when trying to get sound with a patched appleHDA kext - so it doesn't seem specifically voodoo related.
2) there is no KP at boot time if no audio kext is loaded
3) the problem did not exist in 10.6.4
4) I can mostly boot normally when I use either 'ignore caches' or 'verbose boot'

Hoping somebody knows what the problem might be.

Guys, I've installed VooDooHDA 2.7 ( the latest ) and I have some noise and crackling on certain tones and songs. Anyways, I know I can fix that through the prefpane, but when I go there, the prefpane recognizes my sound as " Digital OUT HDMI ", which I don't use. I use my Green Line Out, the other one is something from the graphics card. How can I make it use the Green Out, and not the HDMI ?
Plus I got a kernel panic when I restarted ( After installing the latest voodoohda )
THANKS.

VoodooHDA is an open source audio driver for devices compliant with the Intel High Definition Audio (HDA) specification, based primarily on code from the FreeBSD hdac driver. It is intended as an Intel-only replacement for AppleHDA on Mac OS X with support for a wide range of audio controllers and codecs.

http://voodoohda.googlecode.com/

feedback, download & discussion:
http://forum.voodoop...org/index.php#5

Several members of the Voodoo team are now actively working on the project - if you would like to help feel free to visit the above links and contact the developers. For any announcements and new releases or to report bugs check out the Voodoo Projects forums. Sources are available from the Subversion repository at Google Code (for instructions click the "Source" tab on the project site).


Does this driver work with idt hda audio devices?

Works on my Asus P5Q Pro card, but there is some noise issues, both on the output in back and in front.
Any solutions to this?

Using SL, I set VoodooHDA at VoodooHDA.prefPane whatever it calls, I reduce input gain to 0 (left most slide), and the cracking sound is no more. Same good as Windows :D

To make perm change, go to VoodooHDA.kext, show package content, edit its Info.plist to

<key>iGain</key>
<string>0</string>
<key>iMix</key>
<string>100</string>

Hello!

This thread has been very helpful - I've been trying to upgrade my Vostro 1500 (most probably an ALC92xx sound chip) from an iatkos 10.6.3 to 10.6.8. I KP'd a lot when I just inserted the voodooHDA kext in S/L/E (not sure which version I was using). HOWEVER - when I went to the google repository - I used the 2.7.3 installer and viola no more KP....no sound either :(.

By now I knew 2.7.2 was causing KPs so I tried using the 2.7.1 installer and...voila! NO KP yet I get sound (still like when I was under 10.6.3 - where the onboard mike input is weak).

BUT - yes there is a but - after I install 2.7.1, go and restart, everything is OK. (here comes the but) When I shutdown/restart after that - voodooHDA causes a KP. Is there any way to prevent this? 2.7.3 is consistent - no KP will boot everytime even after a restart - no sound either (a dialogue box comes up everytime I choose a sound related action - the 'path is undefined (or something like that)'.

As an experiment, I will try to install 2.62 and see where that takes me. Any suggestions/recommendations for 'stabilize' 2.7.1 would be appreciated.

Is this driver still being developed? There are tons of old bug reports on the Google-hosted VoodooHDA project page, digital out via S/PDIF seems to be working for no-one, and there are problems with clipping/distortion on the analog outs or constant background noise when it does indeed work.

I must have tried 20 different combinations of drivers and settings, but I cannot get it working satisfactorily. This is on a Shuttle SH67H7 system (H67 chipset, using ALC888 codec).

I primarily wanted to get the optical out (TOSlink) working on this system, as the red light does indeed activate when the output is selected, but no sound is passed through. I've also tried all conceivable variations of settings for sample rate & bitrate in ‘‘Audio MIDI Setup’’; all to no avail.

When using SoundFlower as an intermediate device I got some very faint distorted output, and that's basically it. ;-)

Anyone on here that have had more success than me getting this thing working?

An update -- for my system at least (which is using the ALC888 codec on a H67 chipset, a Shuttle SH67H7), VoodooHDA 0.2.62 does enable the S/PDIF digital optical (TOSlink) output. I basically tried all the other (incl. the more recent) VoodooHDA versions and none of them came close to getting the digital audio port actually producing sound.

VoodooHDA 2.7.x also has a way too high output level for this audio chipset (on the analog outs), causing distortions when playing dynamic material such as movies in VLC or MPlayerX.

0.2.62 did not have that issue, and the volume on the players can actually be set at 100% (not the system volume), without causing distortions. On the other VoodooHDA's the sound started to distort at around ~50%!

So it, to me at least, it appears that support for certain well-known codecs has suffered during recent VodooHDA development. Obviously it would be nice to have this support re-instated in the 'current' versions (along with proper 5.1 support over S/PDIF).
