USB 3.0.

I've just installed 828M, but I see it was happening earlier on 820M at least. After a fresh boot or restart, the front panel USB3.0 connector work correctly under control of XHCI at 5Gb/s. After waking from sleep, there is an error in system.log :

 

kernel[0]: USBF:    2619.241    AppleUSBXHCI::RestoreControllerStateFromSleep - Error restoring controller state USBSTS = 0x401
 

and the USB3.0 is now controlled by EHCI instead of XHCI and down to 480Mb/s.

 

I tried toggling the XHCI handover in the BIOS, bu the machine locked up when I plugged in the external drive.

My case has no USB 3.0 front panel, I will get the cable separate and investigate...

 

AFAIK I have to repeat myself, but providing dumps will help in/to solve some of the issues, as you can see at this moment I can't reproduce your bug, you didn't mentioned the OS version, the bug may be caused by your specific usb adapter and so on...

 

just installed 828M bios. now sleep works and HDMI Sound. only no volume control  from toolbar 

thats no big deal for me . 

Digital audio, that includes HDMI audio, has no control from toolbar, blame Apple for that, but is not a hack thing....

Thanks for looking at this. Having tried the drive in one of the backplane sockets, I get the same problem, so nothing to do with the front panel. The drive is a Toshiba USB3.0 500GB external which lights up white for a USB2 connection, and blue for a USB3 one.

 

I've attached (I hope) a darwindump. I'm on Mavericks GM (10.9).

 

When I had 828M installed, I deleted the DSDT I had installed in /Volumes/EFI/Efi/Quo/ACPI/load to get Vervet framebuffer. With 828M, I seemed to have sleep problems - it would sleep, wake up after a few seconds and then stay awake for the duration set in Energy Saver (20minutes) beforer sleeping again. So I reinstalled 820M without putting the DSDT back, but it did not revert to hoolock, but stayed with Vervet. I'm confused!

Just tested the USB3.0 ports under Mavericks, they are fine for me and USB 3.0 devices does survive and function at same speed after sleep.

 

BUT, in your particular case, i need a dump before sleep to pronounce 100%, till then I bet is the KVM Switch fault!

Not a "fault", Baldy, but a deliberate option. Is this way by design!

Yes ALL digital audio (SPDIF, HDMI) has no hardware volume control in OS X.
In essence it is always node connects to node...

Hi Baldy_man, same as you - a Sapphire Vapor-X 5770! I've used 2 screens on it for 2/3 years, so most of my initial problems were getting 2 screens running without the cushion of Clover.

Hi TK,

 

I disconnected all USB devices except the Logitech unifying receiver for the keyboard/mouse. The KVM was only used as a USB hub to get the Logitech receiver onto my desk as it has pitiful range.

 

Anyway, problem persists without the KVM, hub on one of the monitors and the USB iMic sound card thingy.

 

I tried it without connecting the USB3 drive before sleep - same problem. I tried it with and without the Logitech software for the unifying receiver (the LCC software can be pretty flaky) - same problem. I can't try without the logitech kb/mouse as I don't have any wired keyboard/mice stuff these days.

 

I tried it with a different USB3.0 drive and lead - same problem.

 

It's obvious it is an easy problem to work round, and if no-one else is experiencing it, please don't waste too much sleep over it. But thanks for your help.

 

I've attached a darwindump taken straight after a fresh boot.

Hi Baldy_man,  having got the 5770 to work with a DSDT and 820M, I tried 828M, but it seemed to give me sleep problems I didn't have before. However, it looks as though it managed to stash the correct info about the 5770 into NVRAM, so when I switched back to 820M, it remembered to use Vervet instead of dropping back to hoolock. I didn't need the DSDT and I didn't want it while trying to solve the USB problem.

 

I'll wait to see if The KING comes up with anything re USB3.0 and try 828M again.

Not that easy b/c it will require some work on your end:

1. clean install and use of latest BIOS

2. use of wired kb/mouse

 

Then start adding USB devices one by one and test sleep/wake to see who fault is.

AFAIK there is no other easy way.

 Yes that should work fine.

 

Motherboard already has tuned DSDT,nothing else required apart from the AppleHDA kext.

So I'm not 100% sure if this is the right place for this question but I figure I'll throw it out there and see what happens.  I just put my build together with the QUO board.  Using an Asus GTX670, and whenever it's in the system and I power on, all I get is the QUO splash, one beep, a second beep after about 10 seconds, then another beep after 10 seconds and eventually it goes to a blank screen with just a blinking cursor in the top left.

 

No keyboard interaction is accepted, and it never proceeds past this point.

 

It's worth noting that this was not the behavior out of the box, I was able to get into the BIOS menu with the discrete card until I flashed to 828M.  The onboard video still works fine, I installed Mavericks and have it up and running just fine with the onboard.  But I get no joy with the discrete.

 

Hoping someone can point me in the right direction or show me the magic sauce to get this puppy working.

 

Thanks!
