    Clover General discussion

    I try to figure out how to boot with both, my HD4000 and my GTX670 active. Has anybody this configuration running with Clover? My config is very basic: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>SystemParameters</key> <dict> <key>boot-args</key> <string>-v npci=0x2000</string> <key>prev-lang:kbd</key> <string>en:0</string> <key>InjectSystemID</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>LegacyBoot</key> <string>PBR</string> </dict> <key>Pointer</key> <dict> <key>Speed</key> <string>8</string> </dict> <key>Graphics</key> <dict> <key>GraphicsInjector</key> <string>No</string> <key>PatchVBiosBytes</key> <dict> <key>Find</key> <data>gAeoAqAF</data> <key>Replace</key> <data>gAeoAjgE</data> </dict> </dict> <key>RtVariables</key> <dict> <key>MLB</key> <string>12345678123456789</string> </dict> </dict> </plist>
  2. At least the HD4000 seems very similar.
  3. Well but these are only guesses. I would like to understand what these parameters exactly do. I look forward to the new iMac and the new AGPM profiles that will come along with the new GTX 675MX and GTX 680MX. I'm tensely how they will differ from the current GT 650M profile.
  4. Forgotten, using the optical out also prevents from popping audio.
  5. There is also the antipop solution for fixing this annoying noise. I checked the performance on different sys defs but i didn't wrote it down as Alfa did here. I can confirm that i had the best performance with the imac 12,2 def but the difference was small. My main doubts about using imac sys def is the AGPM tweak because I am absolutely clueless what these settings are doing... I spent hours on the Internet to find more Information but without success...
  6. Hmmmm if I do so there would be no big difference to a imac 12,2 sys def with edited AGPM... I described how to edit the AGPM for HD4000 and GTX670 on imac12,2 here but i have absolutely no idea what exactly these values are for. I only can say that there are no more Console errors after this patch. If i need to edit the AGPM anyway I would prefer to do that on a iMac definition. Do you know about these definitions? The structure seems to be different for a imac or a mac pro. Unfortunately I could not find any documentation about what the values I use exactly do. Here is what i set: <key>iMac12,2</key> <dict> <key>Vendor10deDevice1189</key> <dict> <key>BoostPState</key> <array> <integer>1</integer> <integer>9</integer> <integer>9</integer> <integer>1</integer> </array> <key>BoostTime</key> <array> <integer>1</integer> <integer>1</integer> <integer>1</integer> <integer>1</integer> </array> <key>Heuristic</key> <dict> <key>ID</key> <integer>4</integer> <key>MinP0P1</key> <integer>4</integer> <key>MinP5</key> <integer>11</integer> <key>MinP8</key> <integer>13</integer> <key>MinVP0</key> <integer>0</integer> <key>MinVP1</key> <integer>4</integer> <key>MinVP5</key> <integer>11</integer> <key>MinVP8</key> <integer>13</integer> <key>NumOfPstates</key> <integer>14</integer> <key>P0Table</key> <array> <integer>0</integer> <integer>1</integer> <integer>2</integer> <integer>3</integer> <integer>4</integer> <integer>5</integer> <integer>6</integer> <integer>7</integer> <integer>8</integer> <integer>9</integer> <integer>10</integer> <integer>11</integer> <integer>12</integer> <integer>13</integer> </array> <key>P1Table</key> <array> <integer>0</integer> <integer>1</integer> <integer>2</integer> <integer>3</integer> <integer>4</integer> <integer>5</integer> <integer>6</integer> <integer>7</integer> <integer>8</integer> <integer>9</integer> <integer>10</integer> <integer>11</integer> <integer>12</integer> <integer>13</integer> </array> <key>SingleTable</key> <integer>1</integer> <key>VideoPstate</key> <integer>9</integer> </dict> <key>control-id</key> <integer>17</integer> </dict> <key>Vendor8086Device0162</key> <dict> <key>Heuristic</key> <dict> <key>EnableOverride</key> <integer>0</integer> <key>ID</key> <integer>2</integer> </dict> <key>control-id</key> <integer>16</integer> <key>max-power-state</key> <integer>18</integer> <key>min-power-state</key> <integer>0</integer> </dict> Seems to be much more complex than only giving the trash-holds for de PStates.
  7. Yes. I've this issue only in Quicklook. I use QL very often. Most time to check if a converted movie is okay after the process is done. It makes no sense to me that it works when i enable the onboard graphics even if i don't use it... There must be a configuration issue... i also tryed it without the "agpm".kext but that has no impact.
  8. Now i tried multiple configs. The only one which gave me seamless playback in Quicklook was imac12,2 with parallel activated HD4000. Monitor attached to my GTX670. missing / black frames playing movies in Quicklook on all these configs: mac pro 3,1 GTX 670 only mac pro 3,1 GTX 670 and HD4000 mac pro 5,1 GTX 670 only mac pro 5,1 GTX 670 and HD4000 imac 12,2 GTX 670 only Nobody here who has the same setup as I and can check if he has the same behavior?
  9. But iMac12.2 had AGPM and i had the issue there as well. Additionally there were a lot of other probems with AGPM because of the missing device properties in the info.plist of the AppleGraphicsPowerManagement.kext... on the other Hand why does it work in QT? I can give it a try with Mac pro 5.1...
  10. Hi there I'm usually over at tony. But now I've a annoying problem while watching movies, for example 720p mp4, in Quicklook (VTDecoderXPCService) and till now nobody could help... Randomly I see some "black frames" and I've absolutely no idea why. I had this problem before with my Hack as I ran with iMac12.2 SysDev. Activating my HD4000 in addition to my GTX670 fixed that Problem for me. But at this moment I'm running on Mac pro 3.1 because of the popping audio and other energy-management problems i had with iMac12.2. Opening the same movie in Quicktime or iTunes does not show the black frames. I also didn't found any hint in the logfiles. Any ideas? Thanks and greets from Switzerland Marcel
