  1. Curious if anyone has gotten an internal or external IR or RF receiver to work on their Hackintosh? I just got a Harmony 900 and would like to control Windows Media Center and if possible Front Row/Boxee/iTunes. I am looking at buying this internal add on and hoping for the best.Antec 30124 Veris Basic Multimedia Station
  2. i'm using an evga gtx 285 with a dvi to hdmi 24+5 pin cable. i have audio working over the cable as well with the graphics card wired to the internal optical port on my motherboard. i'm using 10.6.3 right now as i have heard graphics performance has suffered with 10.6.4. as far as i can tell this is the best card that is supported right now.
  3. I just wanted to say thanks to everyone on InsanelyMac, and especially to DD and Cruisair and everyone else that has helped me along the way. I finally have a fully working Hackintosh. Buying a new graphics card was the key to my last remaining problems. This hobby is so rewarding! Now time to try and hone the craft so I can try and be the go to guy.
  4. I'm using the audio and ethernet kexts in /Extra and they work fine. I am using the Crusair method w/your script. For some reason my audio and ethernet would not work unless I had them in /Extra. I am using the RealtekR1000SL kext and the HDAEnabler and LegacyHDA kexts as well.
  5. Hi everyone, I just updated to 10.6.4 from 10.6.2. I updated my boot cache before restarting after the update, and after booting back up I got a black screen. This was an issue I had with 10.6.3 and I am almost certain it has something to do with the HDMI on my graphics card as Apple either dropped support for that or has an issue with HDCP. I was hoping that after the Mac Mini update, 10.6.4 would offer support for my card to connect to my LCD TV. Right now I am using a DVI to HDMI cable to my LCD TV but that did not fix the problem. I'm not sure where to go from here of if anyone else has been able to get around this "little" problem as I know many people are experiencing this issue. Short of getting a new graphics card, I have no clue what to do. Please see signature for my setup. Thanks
  6. I don't know how well DD's script will work on your board, but if you want to try it you have to use 64 bit kexts. If you are using the ATY kext for your graphics card you are going to have trouble as that is 32 bit only. Also you need to go to your boot plist in your extra folder or modify plist in the script and remove the -v and arch=i386 entries. Follow DD's guide for your graphics card specifically as I do not have experience working with that card. Although if I were you I would try to purchase a new card that is more supported by Apple/Hackintosh. One other thing you could try as well if you want to search through the Hackintosh community, you may find others that are using your motherboard specifically as well. Hope this helps.
  7. I am not sure about all 9xxx series cards working. I have a 9800 GTX+ 1GB, and once I upgraded to10.6.3 I lost my video once the OS loaded up. I have my system hooked up to a HDTV, and have tried using the HDMI out on my card to the TV and also the DVI out to HDMI on my TV as well and both had the same result.
  8. tried toggling the graphics enabler to no but still a no go on the netflix error....
  9. Hi everyone! I have a perfectly working hackintosh, however I am getting the Netflix 8152 error. I was using DD's script and booted the 32 bit kernel, using the ATY kext, and added an ethernet string using OSX86Tools. It was working fine then, however I wanted to startup using the 64 bit kernel. Once doing that I used NVInject and it still worked, however the graphics side of things didn't run as smoothly. I decided to use a GFX string for my card. However upon doing this Netflix no longer worked even though I still have the ethernet string from OSX86Tools still in my bootplist. I'm wondering if anyone knows how to get around this. I want to use the 64 bit kernel as I use 64 bit software, and the GFX string as my graphics run smoother. My specs are as follows: Gigabyte UD5 mobo, i7 920, 6GB DDR3 memory, Nvidia 9800 GTX+ 1GB. My bootplist is as follows:
  10. hi there i had the same problem as u up until just now. wat i did was i used dd's script to make me a usb installer. however my bios wouldn't post w/his usb installer on my thumb drive. perhaps u will hav better luck. wat i really used out of this was the extra folder that his script created. in case u hav a problem like i did, i deleted the boot file on the thumb drive after dd's script created it. i then used lifehacker's guide (http://lifehacker.com/5351485/how-to-build-a-hackintosh-with-snow-leopard-start-to-finish) to add the bootloader to the usb stick using chameleon rc3 and netkas 10.5. once finished i selected the thumbdrive in my bios to boot and then installed OSX using it. for some reason it worked that way to give me my firewire working again. i am assuming because of the extra folder in the usb drive that dd's script created that utilizes specifics for the ud5 motherboard. after that i used dd's script that was copied to the thumb drive as well to install the bootloader and neccessary kexts to the hard drive. i hope this helps. i hav been working on this forever and i wanted to try and help u out as well.
  11. i found these links in another thread. the first two files are on the first link and the last is on the second. all i did was replace these files in s/l/e with the downloaded 10.6.1 files. repair permissioins and reboot. hope this helps as a temporary fix until something more concrete comes along. http://www.megaupload.com/?d=8EVX9G3K http://www.megaupload.com/?d=KHOK1XQG
  12. Yeah I have Firewire enabled in my bios, and I have tried to just start fresh again and it still didn't work. I have tried removing APPLEHPET.kext in s/l/e as some have suggested and that didn't help either. This is quite frustrating, as I made this system for video editing and Firewire is kind of neccessary. How do you have your graphics card connected to your display? I had mine connected through HDMI to my TV and after updating to 10.6.2 I also would get a black screen upon booting up. Apparently the NVDANV40Hal, NVDANV50Hal, and the NVDAResman kexts in s/l/e were the culprit as Apple changed them with the update. Something to do with the HDCP protection. I had to replace them with the ones from 10.6.1 as a temporary fix until a permanent solution can be made.
  13. Hello everyone. I used dd's guide and everything works except for a few things. I can't get my firewire to work. System profiler states "unable to list firewire devices" and on bootup it states firewire runtime conservation error. Has anyone figured out how to fix under 10.6.2 the black screen when connected through hdmi to a display from graphics card? Also I was curious as why I get the 8152 netflix error with Chameleon RC4 and not RC3? I rolled back to RC3 for now, but I was wondering nonetheless how to make it work in RC4? I added the ethernet string to my boot plist. My specs are as follows: Using Chameleon RC3 under 10.6.2 w/all kexts installed in the extra folder except for the realtek ethernet kext which is in system.
