You can probably google a VoodooHDA .pkg. Multibeast contains older builds, but you can try to find 2.7.2. If you can't find it, I can upload it.

oldnapalm, I have the nodes patched with diffferent default association and sequence (all sequences are 0) and still nothing works. What can I do? It's almost as if Voodoo's ignoring the plist...

Make a new dump after patching nodes and check if they were applied (patched pins configuration), if they are not then you probably did something wrong.

There is no change in the dump. Would you like me to upload my dump/plist files?

If you want an opinion, please do it.

Are you updating caches (mkext or kernelcache) after editing the plist?

Updating the caches did the trick... :blush:

Thank you again oldnapalm for this wonderful guide!! Now I have a perfect hackintosh!! :D To top it off, I have a lot of knowledge on audio codec patching, too (learning is always the best part:)).

Actually, not quite perfect yet...

What I want to do is use several sets of speakers connected to different outputs at the same time; I don't necessarily need 5.1 or 7.1 (although that would be nice). Right now I can only select one in System Preferences - and when I tried to create an aggregate device, for some reason only one output would be used, there would be horrible crackling, and I can't change the volume (from the menu bar or volume keys). What can I do?

Hello. After weeks of reading, understanding and trying to get voodoohda to work perfectly on ALC260 sound chip i came here to ask for help. My problem i that i cant get Line out and headphones to work at the same time, nor make them auto detect... in sound options i allways see only one output the one that i give the first default association. I have a built in speaker too, but no mater what i do i can only get one output... the output that is set to the first in default association

Hello everyone,
My configuration is this :

I7 930
Asus P6X58D-Premium
WD Velociraptor 150 GB
Altri Western Digital interni
ATI 5850 scheda video reference
Monitor Asus ML229H
Ali Cooler Master 850W

I have one problem :
with my setup works but the sound is inaudible, the background noise is a very strong and is not caused by interference or other because with windows it works fine, I refer not only to speakers but also connect any external device to the jack , as the headphones.

I've installed kext voodoo 2.7.2......., the available latest version of iaktos L2.

I can not solve the problem, I formatted more than 20 times in 3 days, every time I change kext I have to reinstall the system. the rest works great.

Forgive my English, I'm Italian :)

Hi! I have alc269. Nothing helps me with crappy cracks. All that stuff like iGain, iMix etc are helpless.

Did you try enabling SSE2 in the prefpane or enabling Vectorize in the plist?

Panel shows HDMI only, all settings there are inactive. Vectorize in plist gives nothing. Also I can hear loud background hissing.

Well, check in Sound preferences - can you see any ports?

If so, try enabling the HalfVolume fix. Don't forget to run Kext Utility or other program to update kext caches.

Now Im realized that I have "mouse moving bug". Sound gets clear only when rapidly moving cursor or cpu is loaded with something.

I'm trying to enable HDMI Audio on my ATI Saphire Radeon HD 5450, VID 1002 | DID AA01 (from Windows)| SubSys 00AA0100. In 10.7.3 via System Info app DID AA01 is displayed as AA68 (ATI Manhattan HDMI Audio [Mobility Radeon HD 5000 Series] [1002:aa68]). VoodooHDA 0.2.7.3 detects the HDMI device but does not find any output controls with it. I then applied the trick as per Slice's instructions to set the device and vendor ID in Info.plist, then create one entry for each card in IOKitPersonalities, to no avail.

Here's my VoodooHDA getdump. I am aware there are several possible approaches (hex editing ATIFramebuffer; hex editing VoodooHDA;) or even a mix of them.

What I could need at this point is advice which path you think I should follow.

Thank you,
Bugs

Maybe you can control the volume from your TV (or whatever you're connecting to via HDMI)?

hey PookyMacMan, it's April 16 not 1 - or do we need a new FAQ entry "Should I reply to a posting without having read it in an awake state?" .. :wink2:

?

From what I know, HDMI devices don't have controls via software (volume keys) with Voodoo...

Possibly, however, the VolumeControlFix might do the trick.
