In Topic: HD 6870 DVI Connectors SOLVED

27 May 2012 - 06:52 PM

Today I upgraded to 10.7.4. In the update the aticontroller file was changed. I repeated the process in the post and everything works fine now. I don't have the disk offsets from the 10.7.3 file to compare and I don't know if anything else was changed in the file.

So if you update you will have to go through the process again or use a backup copy of the controller file.

To update I have also tried to do an DSDT edit to get the video card working without using graphicsenabler. That was unsuccessful, the system booted but the information was wrong under the system profiler, and the DVD player did not work. Also the fan on the graphics card was at 100%.

So, with the graphicsenabler=yes the system appears to be working OK with the exception of cinebench. I tried connecting the computer to the LCD TV again. Whenever its connected the system locks up. I tried remote access and it works OK but only with ssh and not with screen sharing.

Again to recap:

With 10.7.3, the LCD TV will crash the system, and no cinebench.
With 10.5.8, the LCD TV works fine as a monitor.

UPDATE: With graphicsenabler=no the LCDTV works. I suspect there is something not right with the accleration.

Attached is my ATI600 kext, which was a 10.7.3. You will have to install it and rebuild your kernel cache.

It works for me, I suggest making a backup of your original file and take the necessary precautions. I'm not responsible if you mess up your installation.

I apologize for not responding earlier. I got an intership on early January and things have been crazy for me right now.
After reading everything and seeing the posts you all have made I see that most of you have got it working, I'm really glad for you.

If you can (and want to) please post your fixed kexts (and/or final connector profiles) for others to download.
Nothing beats having a good database of previously edited kexts for different models/configurations/etc.

@lox72 Does the screen always flicker or just in some random moments? How many and which outputs do you have connected when it happens? Could be a link/encoder problem.
@billdlv Thanks to your post I am now aware of the new redsock_bios_decode tool. I have added the link to the tutorial. It should prove to be useful to many.

Yeah I can post it to my thread. The redsock decode tool helped a lot but the one thing it was wrong was for the transmit for the DVI-I port. That combined with the hotplug ID numbers can make for a lot of combinations. It's too bad there is not a way to determine those.

Hi billdlv,
sorry to hear about the hassle with your card.
I used the same tutorial you used : http://www.insanelym...pic=273937&st=0

I have a Power Color HD 6870 1GB

I can confirm both my DVI outputs are working with GE = Yes

I've never been able to use both DVI ports on this card until editing the ATI6000Controller.Kext as outlined by VCH888 's post.

I saw VCH888's post and thought I tried it out. I did not use the AtiPorts=5 boot flag so I tried it again. SUCCESS!!

I am going to update my post thanks for pointing it out again.
