  1. I just want to give my big thanks for your work on this tool ...I think it needs some exposure in the community so it can become more widely adapted, as it deserves!! This is a great community... so exchange, share, help out others to pay thanks to those who helped you out, and always say thank you. Lets keep it alive !
  2. I will give it a go and report back, thank you Mustang Sally
  3. I'm going crazy over this audio issue, been trying to make sense of it, solidly for about two weeks now! Ok… I have the common issue of volume resetting at restart or sleep, not to much of a problem. I used Crackle Fix, works great for problem with crackling audio after sleep (file attached) NOTE: Of ALL the KEXTs I have tried and tested, I have included what I have found to so far, universally be the best working for the P5Q PRO TURBO VIA-VT1708s. Including crackle fix - Recognizes all sound outputs, lets you adjust the volume & allows mute from the keyboard mute button. Thanks to Ron Woehr!! I just cannot seem to get VoodooHDA working well, I get “error in 0..24″ in the VoodooHDA System Preferences. The volume is almost mute, then at about 3/4-Max of the of the volume-slider level, the volume goes to full/max (seems like the volume-output/slider-level ratio is out, I don't know how to manually fix this?). Also, There is no SPDIF-OUT support. Although all audio outputs have seemed to have shown to work, when I had done a fresh rebuild from 10.6.0, before updating to 10.6.8 trying to test another method of install to see if it would make any difference (I believe it was [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] using “mach_kernel” with retail 10.6.0). It all seemed to be working except the common volume slider/mute problem was present (Volume is constant level and does not change with slider level). Then I lost that after the update anyway, (I will retrace my steps and try recreate it to confirm). The audio in System Profiler also shows as “No Built-in Audio”. I know that’s not very important and mainly cosmetic, but I would love to see something displayed there. I have researched so much, I’m exhausting Google’s links, trying other peoples methods, every KEXT and relevant PrefPane config I can find etc... I'm not sure if I am just overlooking something, or have I not focused on the right information? Does AppleHDA, PrefPanes, or anything else come into play somehow with the SL/Lion & P5Q Pro Turbo (VoodooHDA) config? …are there any other methods of getting the audio configured such as DSDT, plist or String edits?? (Which I have done, using EFIString in plist for GTS-250 nvidia graphics) I seem to be running out of options to try. I am really hoping somebody can provide me with a solution or some advice, point me in the right direction... Even to hear from others facing the same/similar problems... I would be so grateful Attachment: P5Q PRO TURBO VIA-VT1708s VoodooHDA+Crackle Fix: All audio outputs recognized. Volume Slider adjustment enabled.

  4. OSX 10.7 Lion on P5Q Pro Turbo

    Hey guys RE: Snow Leopard & moving to Lion …I tried ‘Empire EFI’ first, as described here: http://www.rgwoehr.com/2010/01/30/hackintosh-p5q-pro-turbo/ …It wouldn’t get to install. After trying a few other methods, I have managed to get 10.6.8 running pretty well. My builds are working, and yes, with 64bit Vanilla kernel and extensions enabled. This is what I have found that has worked the best for me so far: I am using the ‘nawcom ModCD’ http://blog.nawcom.com/?p=306 Then install the retail 10.6.0 .dmg. To get 64 bit enabled, I use the Vanilla kernel from the retail disk. I am in Australia, which I think has been part of the problem with following guides and using kexts from others. I've found that there a some variations of the P5Q Pro Turbo based on region. ...following what has worked for some others, did not worked for me, until found this guide: http://translate.google.com.au/translate?j...wtopic%3D196436 …As for my current/preferred method so far: 1: nawcom modCD – I found has decent support for non-Gigabyte boards. 2: Retail Disc 10.6.0 – using mach_kernel boot flag to load OS X 3: After install, run combo update to 10.6.8 4: Use [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] to install DSDT & create SMBIOS.plist 5: Install kexts, make adjustments/tweaks 5: Insert kernel flags into com.apple.Boot.plist Note: Enable ‘arch=x86_64′ into com.apple.Boot.plist, wither other flags I have it running pretty much flawless, but I just cannot get my audio working perfect, it has been a real challenge so far. To keep testing, I'm using ‘Supa Dupa’ to make images of my drive that i just restore back to, after I screw up the build while testing. http://www.shirt-pocket.com/SuperDuper/Sup...escription.html – try it if you haven’t already. I am happy to pass on anything if anybody needs it... **If anyone has any advice, can point me in a better direction or pass on any kexts/tools/utilities to get my VoodooHDA audio working (good) for the VIA VT1708s on the P5Q Pro Turbo, for either Snow Leopard or Lion, I would reeeeeely appreciate it!!
