  1. Thanks for getting back to me. I patched the DSDT and used the 662 kext in the opening post. It's a shame it might not work, I'd like to try everything possible though before I give up. Are there any logs or anything I can post here to give you a better idea of what's going on? Thanks
  2. Hey tmongkol, I posted this a few pages back. Is there any chance you could take a look at it and point me in the right direction please? I've tried injecting the relevant dsdt sections and using the AppleHDA from 10.6.2-10.6.4 with no luck. Thanks, Marc
  3. There seems to be a lot of progress with getting HDMI audio working by patching the AppleHDA.kext. I'm looking into that at the moment. It seems a little complicated but should be doable.
  4. Yeah, it works just fine. There's a patched version of chameleon available at the link I posted which disables legacy usb. I've had no problems with it. Does that enable HDMI audio? I've used the exact same setup and adding the gfx bit always disables all my outputs. Is that with the 10.6.2 appleHDA?
  5. I'm another 662 user trying to get HDMI audio working. I'm using an Acer Aspire Revo r3610. I've attached my current DSDT.aml. It's being used with a kext called ALC662.kext which I believe was originally made for one of the Zotac machines. My current setup shows an extra input and output but works just fine otherwise. I tried adding the relevant parts to my DSDT but no luck. My device id is 0007 as someone else with a 662 also mentioned. Any help with this would be brilliant, thanks. Marc Revo.zip
  6. Give the ones attached on this post a go. You should end up with everything working besides audio over HDMI. I don't really know if this'll work but if you swap the chameleon boot file with the one I posted on the Plex forums and use LegacyUSB=Off you may be able to get it to boot. I guess your other option would be to install from another machine by taking the hard drive out or something similar. Kind of a hassle but definitely worth it I think. PS: Just fixed the issue with blue screen on booting with HDMI.
  7. hey, i noticed you say everything's working with voodoohda. does that include hdmi? it shows in my system profiler but doesn't produce sound. thanks.
  8. Audio over HDMI is the one thing I haven't got running unfortunately. Patching AppleHDA is a little out of my league but hopefully someone else can step up and sort that. That said, the headphone socket optical sockets are working just fine. Hopefully that'll be enough to tide you over until someone cracks the whole HDMI audio thing. Hmm... It might be. I used Apple trailers to see how smooth things were and Plex to get a definitive answer. If you enable debugging in Plex and try to start an h264 encoded video the log will show if it's using VDA or not.
  9. posted this in the acer aspire revo thread but think it's appropriate to the ion 330 in gereral. vda h264 acceleration works under 10.6.4 where as it didn't under 10.6.3. i've seen a lot of people asking an no real definitive answer anywhere. it works and it's awesome. marc
  10. ok, this thread seems to be a little quiet but seems appropriate to post this because i can't find anything about it anywhere else. vda video acceleration does work on the revos. it requires upgrading to 10.6.4 though. got it working this morning.
  11. found this link with regards to the usb problem but i have no experience with dsdt so it's taking a little time to get my head round. http://www.projectosx.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=888 seems like the exact same problem we're having with the r3610.

    thanks for getting back to me. i'll give it a go with i386 and see what i get. i'll keep testing each time you put something new out too. keep up the great work. marc

    Information on VESA modes in ATI&NVIDIA bios

    on a slightly different note... out of curiosity i tried using a dvi to vga adaptor and plugging the graphics card into my monitor that way. this brings up a bigger list of 'supported resolutions'. still none of which are the one i patched though. one that did stand out however is '1400x1050'. with my monitor's native resolution being 1680x1050 it would seem like that is the highest 4:3 resolution i should be able to use in chameleon under normal circumstances but the max i get is 1280x1024. why does using a dvi connection restrict the maximum resolution. that just seems odd since i'd consider dvi to be the superior connection. thanks marc

    tried the hex patch with no success on a 7600gs. limited success with the the patched chameleon. the resolution seems right although squashed into the top two thirds of the screen. resolution returns on hitting the osx gui although the system then kernel panics on logging in. i have a feeling this may be to do with running in 64 bit mode though. i used to get that with rc4 until i added the arch=x86_32 flag. is that still accepted by the rc5 mod? this'd be great to get working.
  15. anyone tried playing round with this yet? i imagine it'd be possible to get it working with out cards too. will give it a go when i get time. Airport App marc
