In Topic: [Solved] ACL889 and HDMI Video Card

16 December 2010 - 01:20 AM

Here is a problem I ran into

(1) GTS250 with two DVI
(2) Older HDTV that has HDMI and Component, but no VGA or DVI - used with a "DVI to HDMI adapter"
(3) Computer Monitor that has VGA only - Used with a "DVI to VGA adapter"

If I just tried using "DVI to HDMI adapter" with the HDTV, it would lockup showing only
a black screen on both monitors so I had to use a "DVI to VGA adapter" connected to a
"VGA to Component adapter box", to use the HDTV

Later I found a modified NVEnabler KEXT, then I could use the "DVI to HDMI adapter"
with the HDTV and set the TV up to use the audio output from the motherboard.

Later... - and were the sound related issues are -

(1) GT240, that has HDMI, VGA, DVI
(2) Older HDTV that has HDMI and Component, but no VGA or DVI
(3) Computer Monitor that has VGA only - Used with a DVI to VGA adapter

A: Using a patched AppleHDA KEXT for my motherboard, I get
motherboard sound - but TV no longer accepts audio output
from the motherboard. - sound is getting to TV - TV is not using it -

B: Using newest VoodooHDA, from over at "Voodoohda Driver, Fully working!"
I get no motherboard sound, and it only shows four digital outputs
and none work.

C: Using the patched VoodooHDA from here, and using "Property List Editor"
to edit "info.plist" inside VoodooHDA, with

VoodooHDAVidSkip to 0x10de
VoodooHDADivSkip to 0x0BE4

BTW "Property List Editor" will convert the values for you, what you input
changes automatically

And now I get motherboard sound - but TV still refuses to accepts audio output
from the motherboard. - sound is getting to TV - TV is not using it -

Somehow the TV is detecting audio on HDMI and choosing
it over the audio output from the motherboard.

Yes, and it's usually clean-wipe, or voodoo registry editing. Guess that none is user friendly: the first one, because none of average Joe Users does backups, and the second one, because editing the registry is far from intuitive and documented.

I never had to do that to solve my problems, LOL

From which I can only conclude that you do quite a poor job at maintaining all three of them...

No Windows, Linux and OS X might crash once every few months

When I use Windows, even without an antivirus package, I just somehow manage to not infect it with malware (though the last time when I did it profesionally was in 2008). I still don't know what I did wrong.

Using Windows unprotected is likely your problem

Right, you find your system screwed. One piece of software works but another is broken. And you have no certainty in DLL load order, no LD_LIBRARY_PATH, no chroot, no nothing to prevent the screwup — except maybe a virtual machine which is an overkill most of the time.

I often install over 100 pieces of software on Windows, a lot of it freeware, never any problems

You hate Windows, and are exaggerating things to prove your point :rolleyes:

If You Can Get Your Hands On This Then It's Technically Legal.
The EFi-X Bootloader


LOL, the same software we use but in a custom flash drive,
somehow changes things ?

Except that if it spills some indecipherable hexadecimal {censored} on you out of nowhere and bluescreens itself, you go routinely to clean-wipe and reinstall. For all 17 years. My 9 years of Linux usage experience taught me to troubleshoot to the actual root cause and fixing it without reinstalling and losing data, and without black voodoo magic.

I can say the same about Windows, when I run into a problem I know how to fix it,
because of years of experience

As in, it manages to crash more often?

Windows crashes no more and no less than Linux or OS X for me

Other than things that make it malfunction and which plague users 90% of their time?

Viruses, Spyware and Malware were my only problems, I had not got a BSOD
or random sudden re-boot in years

Windows: no package management at all, so go to the step 2.
Find the software installer, point and click, point, click, click, click, click, click, click, reboot, click, click, click, OH MY GOD WHAT IS IT THAT MY PC BECAME SO SLOW????!!! Worst of all, you cannot make a coffee, because you must watch for stupid prompts to click "OK" and "Next".

WTF are you talking about, are you using a 386 :rolleyes:

Software installations take a few seconds for me
