    I'm sorry for the kick, but I have the same issue. I need s/pdif on my P5G41C-M
  2. Asus P5N7A-VM

    This morning I reflashed my BIOS with the BIOS file from dgsga (post: 931) Installed fakesmc.kext, IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector.kext, LegacyAppleHDA.kext & OpenHaltRestart.kext into the /E/E folder. Created Extensions.mkext, com.apple.boot.plist and SMBios.plist (the one from dgsga) Booted with -x64 Wait=y -v, everything booted perfectly except it says "No DSDT replacement found. Leaving ACPI data as is" because there is no DSDT file. But, when I try to play the MKV file (1080p) again in VLC, it's still crappy. (Sound works btw) After that I updated to 10.6.2, played the MKV again and, guess what, no difference... In dgsga's post he says you don't need the dsdt file anymore because of the modified BIOS. Does anyone have a solution to play mkv at 1080p smoothly? Felix Edit: Btw, is it allowed to post an image of my Efi drive here? I'm asking because I've seen nobody else doing that. Edit 2: As you can see, VLC uses almost 70% of my CPU when playing a 1080p mkv file. I also installed NVEnabler.kext, but that doesn't seem to solve the problem, so I will remove 't again. Edit 3: I took a screenshot when playing an mkv file. As you can see it is full of artifacts. The strange thing is, movietrailers downloaded from several site (like apple.com) are played perfectly smooth in VLC as in Quicktime. But still the CPU usage is about 70%. Anyone any idea? Edit 4: Tried to play the mkv file on my MacBook, same result. I guess it has something to do with codecs. So forget about the artifacts and stuff. But what about the heavy cpu usage? I believe i'm not the only one that's having that problem...
  3. Asus P5N7A-VM

    Hi, after a lot of research, installing, trying, installing etc. I'm still not satisfied with my current system. Of course i'm using the p5n7a-vm motherboard. On an earlier install, I installed Chameleon and several kexts into the /Extra/Extensions folder, and some in the /S/L/E folder. I had NVkush installed, and no DSDT file. Everything seemed to work perfect, but the only problem was that it wasn't able to play 1080p mkv files. So I was searching for the solution. I reinstalled the whole thing several times, sometimes with the DSDT file, with many different Nvidia drivers. But nothing was working. By searching the last 12 pages of this topic i'm finding it hard to find the right solution. Has anyone a full working system that can smoothly play 1080p movies without any problems? Now I have patched my bios with the latest bios file (p5n.rom) from dgsga. Atm it's doing a new installation. Is it possible to put all the necessary files (fakesmd.kext, applehda.kext etc) including the video driver on a separate usb stick of partition? So I do not have to install everyting again with a fresh OSX install? Regards, Felix
  4. Yeah, Rebel EFI! I'm following this topic for a while. Today I wanted to order the mainboard, seems it isn't available anymore:( But anyway, I read about Rebel EFI on tweakers.net! It seems like the perfect solution. First I want to order the mainboard. Than I want to test the Rebel EFI and maybe the methods described here. Felix
