    [pre-release] macOS Catalina

    Thanks for the advice, unfortunately it didn't work: Netflix HTML5 player with safari is not available. I guess I need to wait for the next beta or try a different dGPU. Regards.

    [pre-release] macOS Catalina

    Tested several times before, retested now to confirm. The only way to get the HTML5 player working in Netflix with Safari in Mojave (for my hardware combination) is using the iMacPro SMBIOS with the iGPU disabled. When I use the shake-id parameter with the iMac 17,1 SMBIOS HTML5 is disabled in Netflix for Catalina and Mojave. In Catalina with the iMacPro SMBIOS and the iGPU disabled, just loading the Netflix front page is enough to freeze the computer! I'm starting to suspect that its a hardware problem related to the dGPU, since it seems like the people having this problem is using Nitro+ cards. Thanks.

    Hi Pavo, Everything works perfectly in Mojave (including DRM support) with the iMacPro SMBIOS. If I choose the correct SMBIOS for my cpu (iMac 17,1) I loose DRM support with Safari in Mojave and I get in both, Mojave and Catalina, the "unsupported plugin" message in Netflix, even with the shikigva=32 and shiki-id=Mac-7BA5B2D9E42DDD94 parameters, so nothing is gained with the correct SMBIOS. The freezing problem has been reported by other users before, but it seems there are no solution so far. I'll check again changing SMBIOS, but it seems to be a hardware decoding issue (T2?). Thanks.

    With the latest beta my computer still freezes when I try to play videos in Netflix or Amazon prime using Safari with the iMacPro 1,1 SMBios and the iGPU disabled :( Can anyone play videos in Netflix using Safari with iMacPro 1,1, SMBios? my dGPU is a Sapphire Radeon RX 570 Nitro+ 4GB

    This problem is still present in Catalina beta 2 hopefully it will be sorted in a future version.

    I'm having exactly the same problem, when I try to access Netflix or play an Amazon Prime video, Safari freezes the computer. My GPU is a 4GB 570+ Nitro, is your GPU a 4GB by any chance? I suspect is a video memory corruption problem, maybe driver related. The card works perfectly in Mojave by the way.
  7. You have to enable the InjectATI option in clover, I also set the FB to orinoco. Some people says that there are some drawbacks on doing this, however, I haven't found any problem so far. Cheers
  8. With the latest beta (18F108f) video hardware acceleration is fully supported with dGPU only, without WEG and without dummy kext! Netflix and Amazon video prime are working perfectly and no green artefacts so far with video export! Excellent!

    I lost DRM support with the latest update, I cannot longer watch Netflix or Prime video using safari otherwise everything else is working fine as usual.
  10. That's not the same bug. I don't have any problem booting using the integrated GPU, however when I use the nvidia webdrivers with a 950Ti I got the black screen. The black screen is just a manifestation of the graphic driver crashing all the time and the system restarting the driver, thus forming a continuous loop. IMO the problem are the webdrivers. This was tested in a new HS installation with the the AGDP fix. I'll try latter the NVWebDriverLibValFix.kext, that may be the key. Cheers!

    [pre-release] macOS High Sierra

    Hi all, Any luck using HD 530 in a GA Z170 gaming 5? I'm having the same problem that camillionario with exactly the same message. It seems like the graphic environment fails to initialise. Cheers,
  12. Hi arsradu, Assuming that you are using clover in UEFI only mode you need the EmuVariableUefi driver, the RC scripts and the clover control panel to be installed, if you have this options already install proceed as below, otherwise install these option and restart you machine. Now, in the clover control panel go to the NVRAM variables tab and from the dropbox "Save NVRAM variables to disk" select "Always", I'm not sure if this is necessary but in my case only started to work after this. Now set the nvda_drv variable to 1 in the NVRAM, type in the console sudo nvram nvda_drv=1 and press enter, check that the variable has been set to 1, type nvram -p and look for the line "nvda_drv 1", no "=" should appear. Restart you machine and hope for the best, this worked for me but as you can see in the posts above is much hit or miss with the Sierra beta 2. Good luck!
  13. Do you have the variable nvda_drv 1 defined in your nvram? It seems like the bootarg option is no longer recognised by the web driver. Type sudo nvram nvda_drv=1 in the console and check that the line nvda_drv 1 appears in you nvram (sudo nvram -p) and that it is persistent between boots. boot-args nvda_drv=1 seems like it is being ignored by the web driver. Hope this helps. Cheers,
  14. Hi, same problem as above, it seems like the problem is that the web driver is not being loaded, NVDAStartupWeb:official is shown during boot. I'm using nvda_drv=1 as boot argument (this works fine for El Capitan) but for some reason it's being ignored in Sierra. Any suggestion to force web driver load? Similar configuration that jsimpson746, but with 750Ti Cheers Sorted, I had to set manually nvda_drv=1 in the nvram, hope it helps.
  15. Much faster with these versions, 236 fps at 4M and 71 fps with the 16M version ! Hopefully we will have a proper benchmark utility soon (Heaven or something else) to compare the Metal performance gains against Open GL.
