Really? What if I tell you that we, this morning tested both the 885 and 889?
Your are speaking only for your specific codec...
But hey, I did tag it with: "for ASUS P5K PRO (ALC883)". Lucky me.
Apple is using all the possibilities of the HDA specifications, which allows them to change things, like any other OEM. You'll find that in the HDA specifications too. And yes, of course, there will always be things to work on. But isn't that exactly the fun part for us Hack users?
Apple don't give a sh*t on specifications, they don't use analog surround out only digital so anyway getting surround working is kind of lame b/c itunes or other apple app will not gave u more then 2ch out(vlc works if the input is 5.1), so you can sit and watch how nice is to play stereo *4.
First, I'm not pretending to know it all, and if that's the red line for you, you better stop here!
I didn't tried to add more then 5.1 ch on 10.5.7(or 5.8) applehda, my focus was to get the rest of inputs/outputs working proper and they are...
Now, I was unable to locate your documentation (during my coffee break) so add it here. Thanks. I'm keen to see what we do wrong – you are aware of the fact that you "made it sound" like what we did/do is not the "proper" way, right? Which to some might sounds rather insulting, really.
Making me wonder why people like: Boombeng, Trauma and me have to work on something like this, when you already have it working properly? Again, like we don't – care to explain that a little here?
Listen. Audio is, and has always been the number one problem for people here – which I'm sure you know by now. And since nobody else here took the time to document the steps I followed... I did.
So I'm curious if the rest of inputs/outputs works for you with 7.1 out....
Right. I'm not done with my documentation, for which I apologized here earlier (with reasoning) and no I don't care if Trauma and Boombeng get it going first. In fact I hope they do (I'm not that a big ego you know) for which I will reward them. Are we clear now?
