Hey guys,

I updated my system to 10.4.8 and tried the HDA patch for ALC883.

Before back with the old kernel, I was getting sound from my internal speakers only through
the AppleAzalia.kext by adding the device id into the plist.

Now with the new kernel, when I install the AppleHDA for ALC883, i only get
sound from the headphone jack.

I tried the kernel dump method and the patch recognized the internal speakers
however again with only sound output from the headphone jack.

Is it possbile and if so how to get sound From both my Internal Speakers and the Headphone jack
thorugh selection from the Sound Menu?

Thanks.

Here is the screensho with the ALC883.pkg installed

Skippy, I truly am a RETARD. I tried your ALC883 package before and it didn't work for me, but after delving deeper and now understanding the problem with kernels etc etc (just over a month on OSX86), I confirm that I now have working 5.1 on analog jacks. In fact, I even have an extra Line-Out output slider under Sound Prefs, so I prolly have digital out working without a way to test it. What I can't figure out is how to make my stereo music in iTunes to play in all 5 channels... is it even possible? Can iTunes in OSX do this? I played around with Sound Prefs and I can send the stereo channels to all of my stereo line-outs (front, rear, center/sub), but choosing Aggregate Device only sends it to my front speakers. I've already set all 3 streams to 16-bit and I can confirm that they all work and are properly assigned to their respective speakers. Line-In and Built-In Mic work too, but I keep the Mic muted.

All in all, great work! I could've made it work earlier if I wasn't such a dumb noob :) I'm going to check Audio MIDI Setup again later after a reboot to see if it holds the Aggregate Device Speaker Setup, I think that's the problem that why I can only hear iTunes through the front speakers.


Some pics:

No use sending system alerts and sound effects to all 6 channels... the front speakers suffice.

Count them... 4 stereo channels! Aggregate Device sends 3 streams for 5.1!

Inputs also working well, although I don't have any use for the Built-In Mic... TV audio currently streaming through Line-In :)

Audio Midi Setup soon to be tackled... again.


Ok, I rebooted and checked again... Audio MIDI Setup indeed does not save my 5.1 Aggregate Device Setting. Does anyone else have this problem? I've set every device to 44KHz 2ch-16bit, and matched the streams to their channels, applied, done. Quitting Audio MIDI Setup and starting it up reveals that my Aggregate Device is back to Stereo. Is this a bug or incompatibility? I'm sooo close to 5.1! :) :D :wacko:

Hi, I have Higabyte DS3 mobo with ALC883 chip, but I can`t get the 6-channel sound working.

Stereo works fine, 6 channel works during calibration, but the Apply button won`t actually do anything. Itunes still works in stereo, and when I go back to audio setup I see Stereo in settings, not Multichannel. Any Idea what it could be?


Looks like I have a similar problem with Laik.


LAST EDIT:

Audio MIDI Setup doesn't seem to save the settings but it does, VLC player properly decodes 5.1 tracks from DVDs. Truly, I am a retard. Thanks for your work Skippy! :)

Same problem here. I installed 10.4.8 and ALC883Audio (i have ALC833 chip) with the 3 ports options, but only recognizes the headphone port. wtf? :(

EDIT
Solved by selecting 6 ports during the installation. But now if i plug the headphones, the speakers are not muted. I have to select the headphones from the sound properties, in order to mute the speakers and make the headphones to work. Guessing that this is not the normal behaviour...

maybe silly but .... can be configured the driver (for alc883) to have a proper name for out-put - like front rear, center... bla bla ?
It is just a question - and I do apreciate the hard work for getting the driver working !

Hey everybody. I have a Compal HEL81 Notebook (CoreDuo, GMA950, ALC883) and the driver works perfectly on this notebook (except for a pop noise when a sound will start being played).

Anyway, I can't find any kernel that will support Sleep from 10.4.8 on (haven't tested 10.4.9 yet), but on 10.4.6, sleep works as it does on a real Macintosh.

But if I use 10.4.6, I can't use the ALC883 drivers. Is there any way to make the driver work on the 10.4.6 kernel?

Thanks a bunch in advance !

Carlos

I'm sorry, I meant 10.4.7 instead of 10.4.8. If I use .7, the notebook sleeps and all that, but the ALC883 audio won't work. If I use .8, sleep crashes and ALC883 work.

Is there a way to use the ALC883 driver on a 10.4.7 Kernel?

TIA.

Carlos

This one worked for me. I've been strugging for over a month to make my audio work. Downloading and installing this file did the trick.

Thanks

Carlos,

I have the very same gear that you have. Did you tried to use headphones on them? It works?

It doesn't work for me.

It is working, at last for me, 10.4.9 with kernel 8.9.1 - but, what so ever, I cannot get more that stereo !!!! If somebody can help-me to get that 5.1 I put the linux dump for my card (my mb is a asus P5L 1394, alc 883, 945P chipset). Hope to see a sunshine in here, since I was unnable to find master Skippyretard or Taruga on the chat room !

hi, i got the alc883 working on my generic laptop. sound is working fine. now, when i choose the line out as my default sound output, the sound goes out from there, but when i try to plug in my headphone on the headphone jack, nothing comes out of it. sound just continues to go out of the line out jack. now i chose the headphone jack as the default sound output, the sound comes out of there, but no sound comes out of the lineout anymore.

is it suppose to be like that? is there any way to make it auto switch from line out to headphone jack when i plug in a headphone?

thanks in advance guys. ;)

I have exactly the same problem as I mentioned before. Sure it would be better if someone could find a solution, but nevertheless I'm completely satisfied as far I have sound at all...
Thanks skippyretard, great job :thumbsup_anim: :dance_24:

I don't think ALC883 auto-sensing works under Mac, AFAIK only the WinOS drivers have auto-sensing properly working.

Your Azalia + ALC883 makes my Acer Aspire 3680 sound alive.

Thank you very much!
