Is this even in development anymore? Last update I saw was in April and this kext still needs work... Particularly with IDT codecs like the one on the my M17x with nVidia MCP79. I hear like 50 scratching sounds and 10 actual parts of my music... Its horrid.

For those interested in the Xonar DX series, maybe someone can mod this puppy to make it work with Snow Leopard:

Its a driver for the Xonar U1. I would imagine one would simply have to change the device id's to match those of your DX cards, but what do I know....

Hi guys. I have purchased an Asus Xonar D1 to use in place of my BadAxe2's onboard sound card and have installed the kext and followed the instructions throughout. Upon rebooting I go to System Preferences and it reports no output device. Has anyone succeeded in getting one of these to work in iATKOS v7?

The system is running 10.6.2. Scrub that, thats my MBP. The Hackintosh is running 10.5.8.

The output from ioreg -l lists IRQs iirc can be seen here:

I'm a Windows developer so I'm pretty lost here so please help...

Thanks.

Heyyo,

Hi guys! Sound working on SnowLeopard with CMI8738! ;)
I've been able to compile from sources the kext for CMI8738 chipsets!
Output working perfectly under 10.6.0 64-bit. You will find the kext attached to this post.

Tried changing the IOPCIMatch to 0x878813F6 and it detects there's a soundcard, but no volume output. Indeed, the CMI8788 soundcard is different enough from the CMI8738 that it won't work unless modified.. maybe someday someone shall. My soundcard is an Asus Xonar DX PCI-E version. So no luck for me. :(

Hey, I am new here. I was reading this thread, hoping that by the end of it, I would find a compatible driver for my Asus Xonar Essence STX PCI-e sound card.
I built a HTPC, and and running win7, but microsoft is way to buggy for this OSX user.
I wanted to hackintosh my PC, but I need sound! Please anybody. We need your skills.

If someone compiles a driver that works for the CMI8788 chipset, would it not work for me anyways because my card is PCI-e? I know computers, but I am not a programmer at all.
Thanks!

Maybe we should put together a paypal donation fund, so we can pay someone to do it.
(A driver for CMI-8788 for SnowLeopard)
Any takers? Anyone with the skill to pull it off, and just needs a push of cash incentive?
If so, how much?

Lets see if there are any takers, then we can figure out a way to keep it honest.
Just an idea...a potential solution, seeing as Asus wont support the people who love a strong, clean OS. :D

  • Interests:Power Mac G5 reincarnated as C2D: <br /><br />GA-EP43-UD3l<br />Pentium...
Just wanted to post a successful result with a card I haven't seen mentioned here yet:

http://www.newegg.co...N82E16829270006

SIIG Soundwave 7.1 PCI Audio card - uses CMI8768 chip, working great with Cmedia 8738 kext. Using the version 0.6.4 (dated Nov. 8 2009) of the CMI8738 kext, and it's working in 64-bit snow.

This is a little bit higher-end card than some of the cheapo 10 dollar cards available with the 8738 chip. I'm hoping it will last well - bad reviews of the cheaper cards drove me to find this one. So far it works and sounds great.
