I now have the ability to set the resolution to 1920x1080 in Mountain Lion, but do not have the ability to play Diablo III. :(

I am running an HP ATI HD 5450

Hi BugsB,
Were you running multiple monitors? I seem to have things working with my Asus Radeon HD 5450 Silent 0x68e1 and can't get it to run multiple monitors. Chess crashes, but QE/CI does seem to be at least partially working, with animations and transparent menu working.

Any help you could offer would be awesome.

Hi!

HDMI outs are working with Lion or Mountain Lion? I'm interested in buying a HD5450 for my HTPC.

Best regards!

HDMI + VGA = OK

HDMI + DVI: DVI is blackened out once loginwindow loads. The trick is to run a monitor-sleep app as login-item, then wiggle the mouse at some point to awake both monitors.

Thank you very much for answering!

I was interested in single monitor setup - HDMI only! - and i decided to put my skills to test and bought the card anyway. I can confirm HDMI works with full QE/CI in a 1080p HDTV in a single monitor setup.

Now it's HDMI audio that interests me: is there a way to make it work? Here my skills are failing me, as well as many VoodooHDA iterations.

Best regards!

This is all information I can pass on to you:

ATI Saphire HD 5450 HDMI Audio VID 1002 | DID AA01 | SubSys 00AA0100
in OS X the DID is displayed as AA68 (ATI Manhattan HDMI Audio [Mobility Radeon HD 5000 Series] [1002:aa68])

ATI Cedar HDMI Audio [Radeon HD 5400/6300 Series] [1002:aa68]

There is a step-by-step guide to enable HDMI by DSDT over at tonym@c to which we may not link - pls search for it via your favorite search engine.

Good luck, and keep me posted, please :)

.. but for another note:

When still running 10.8.0, I had switched off graphis enabler in the chameleon.boot.plist because the correct framebuffer (Eulemur) would break wake-up from sleep on HDMI video. For watching DVDs it's best however to turn it back on. Just did in 10.8.2 --> black screen on both, HDMI and DVI. I know the trick to induce monitor sleep (e.g. via Exposee) and then wake the monitor up, but that did not work. 10.8.2 is responsive via keyboard - I can put it to sleep, and wake it up again via keyboard, but both mons stay black ..

Anybody know the solution?

BugsB, don't switch cards yet: i solved the black screen upon wake issue and also the HDMI audio issue (that one with the providential help of Mirone, an AppleHDA specialist). :D

Yes, i made it! Hope the "like" i gave to your last post calls your attention to this topic before you trash your little card. I'll PM you anyway.

Here's the solution: http://www.insanelym...a/#entry1899978 see post #17. :D (see post #17)
