  1. Hi, I'm sharing this information for X58a-UD3R users, hoping that it could help someone. Since mavericks installation last year, my rig (X58a-UD3R with latest BIOS FH, I7-950, dual HD7950) had garbled audio and sound cutoff . Switching from patched HDA to VoodooHDA didn't help. I got used to it and tought it would be fixed with Yosemite... Recently, my rig crashed while exiting sleep mode, so badly that after a few reboot attemps, the system displayed a text message explaining that the mobo was reverting to backup BIOS due to main BIOS corruption The backup version was so old that I couldn't boot using Clover anymore, so I had to flash a more recent one. Integrated flashing utility (Q-Flash) doesn't allow a >1MB BIOS, so I chose the very last one smaller than 1MB : version FF The system got bootable again using Clover and to my great surprise, the audio problems are gone. The problem with BIOS version FH (latest) is that it adds "Dolby Home Theater PCEEv4 support". I think it should be avoided. It may be possible to fix the issue using a DSDT patch, but it's far beyond my knowledge . I'll give a try to BIOS version FG1 (second to last) once I reboot to Windows, but for now, I'm keeping v. FF. Bye. Edit 2014/09/11: typo

  3. Hello! I have a Gigabyte Z68-MA-D2H-B3 motherboard with the Realtek ALC889 audio chip. I recently updated to 10.9.2 Mavericks, and had to reinstall the newest ALC889 kext to get my audio back. What's weird though, is how it behaves after sleep. I found countless reports of audio not working after sleep, but mine does, somewhat. Before sleeping, I can have sound coming through my speakers, and plug in some headphones and the speakers will mute, and the audio will start coming through the headphones instead. However, after sleep, something related to the sensing of a plug in a port ceases to work. If I have my headphones plugged in while I sleep the computer, the audio will only come out of the headphones when I wake it up. Unplugging the headphones does not make the speakers turn on, and if I plug the headphones back in, the audio is still only there. To switch outputs, I have to unplug the headphones, sleep the computer, and wake it back up. Now sound comes out of the speakers. I really don't know if it used to work, because only recently have I tried messing with sleep. Its not a huge issue, but I'm a perfectionist, and I'd like to try to get it to work perfectly, if possible. The system does appear to wake itself up after what seems like about 8 hours. It may be waking back up in the night and I don't notice. It turns itself back on for just a few seconds and returns to sleep. I had darkwake=0 set in Chameleon from [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url], but recently changed it to darkwake=8 when I started troubleshooting, and it seems to be the same.

  6. Hi I tried my best with DSDT and followed all tutorials for this MoBo i could find, but they allways point to the Voodoo kext. Unfortunately this sollution is simply not good enough for me. I have very strong noise in my spekers with all the voodoo kexts and it is vital to me that the sound is clean. Soo if You have a sollution better then I then I would be glad to hear it [sic!] So far i installed retail 10.7 with the live DVD (regae) then did the combo 10.7.2. With my DSDT.aml copied to the desktop I used [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] 4.2.1 and checked: + user DSDT Install + System Utilities - Drivers - Kexts - Audio - Realtek ALC8xx + ALC8xxHDA + AppleHDARollback - Disk + 3rdPartySATA + Jmicron36x ATA - Network + Realtek Gigabit... I see in SystemUtil that the HDA kext is working (I see input and output choices) but i can't hear a thing. The system is stable so far (no booting in verbose mode to avoid kernel panic as before) but still no clean sound, well no sound at all... Any help will be nice!!! There is a DSDT for MSI X58 pro-e in attachment (extracted in linux and patched with DSDTeditor and debugged in DSDT SE
  7. This patch method will get analog surround sound work in AppleHDA's native multi-channel output rule. If you have problem with this, please use traditional way to patch your AppleHDA. Credit to: THe KiNG, bcc9, Revogirl, TimeWalker, 紫米, VCH888, EMlyDinEsH and many others. If you've never patched AppleHDA, I recommend you to read these two guides about patching AppleHDA before reading this topic. The KiNG's Guide EMlyDinEsH's Guide Take my ALC889 as example: 1. Center Speaker and Subwoofer 2. Left and Right Surround 3. Left and Right Rear (used for 7.1 surround sound) 4. Line in 5. Left and Right Front 6. Mic 7. S/PDIF Optical and Coaxial Internal Speakers: 5 + 1 + 2 Line Out: 3 Digital Out: 7 Internal microphone: 6 Line In: 4 No longer need to setup aggregate device in Audio MIDI Setup to get 6 channel output! 6 channel sound is confirm worked on Built-in Output, even though it's showed as 2 channel in Audio MIDI Setup. (same as Built-in Digital Output) There is no way to adjust the volume in each channel under OS X. You have to adjust the volume on your speakers.

I also changed the jack color to unknown (0), as Mac always use 0 for speakers in PinConfigurations. But I don't think it's necessary. And change all "Default Device" to speakers (1). 40 01 10 90 42 01 10 90 41 01 10 90 Let's take MacBookPro5,2's PinConfigurations as reference: 50 40 2b 01 20 30 8b 01 41 01 10 90 // 6ch speaker 42 01 10 90 // 6ch speaker 10 01 a0 90 40 01 10 90 // 6ch speaker 70 90 a1 01 60 e0 4b 01 30 e0 cb 01 "Use ambient noise reduction" is available for Internal microphone (rear mic) in System Preferences after changing "50 9c a1 01" to "10 91 a0 90". Layout Outputs: Headphone: I've tried to put AmpPostDelay and AmpPreDelay=100 under both Headphone and IntSpeaker. But I found out there are some instrumental sound being cut down in musics and human voice become a bit lower?! I'm not sure. IntSpeaker: It's necessary to setup this SignalProcessing under IntSpeaker, otherwise sound will be distorted even you are not using 6 channel output. There is a value "Dsp6ChOutput" in SignalProcessing. As the name implies, it's used for 6 channel. This is a key to enable AppleHDA's native 6 channel DSP support. Even if you have a different sound card other than my ALC889, you should still use this SignalProcessing section inside the layout.xml, which I attached in ALC889 xml.zip at the bottom of this post, for your IntSpeaker. This whole SignalProcessing section was discovered by VCH888. Thanks to him! But unfortunately, there is no Dsp8ChOutput in AppleHDA, as I've checked all layout xml files and AppleHDA's binary. It's not possible to setup 8 channel sound this way, as AppleHDA does not have 8 channel DSP support. LineOut: SPDIFOut: The signal is digital, so no need to setup any value right here. Inputs: LineIn: There are some problems for hackintosh to use ExtMic. So I changed the rear and front mic to internal mic and line in. MuteGPIO: 0x50 (VREF_80) + 0100 + NodeID (19) = 0x50010019 = 1342242841 Mic: MuteGPIO: 0x50 (VREF_80) + 0100 + NodeID (18) = 0x50010018 = 1342242840 SignalProcessing is used for reducing noise. Platforms The easiest part for sure if you patch AppleHDA in normal way, but using AppleHDA's multi-channel output rules is another case. 0 -0 //Mic (rear mic) --0 -1 //LineIn (front mic) --0 1 -0 //LineIn --0 2 -0 //IntSpeaker (We have to be careful about this in PathMaps. Notice that the jacks are in the same group.) --0 * Black Jack - Left and Right Surround --1 * Orange Jack - Center Speaker and Subwoofer --2 * Green Jack - Left and Right Front -1 //Headphone --0 3 -0 //LineOut --0 4 -0 //SPDIFOut --0 Let's talk about IntSpeaker: All Amp values must be same as what the pictures show below. (2, 0, 0) Black Jack - Left and Right Surround (2, 0, 1) Orange Jack - Center Speaker and Subwoofer (2, 0, 2) Green Jack - Left and Right Front When it comes to mic: The higher Boost value (0~3) you setup, the more sensitive mic you get. Result: Analog 6 channel surround sound can be output by selecting "Internal Speakers" in System Preferences! And no more useless LineOut devices in System Preferences now.

  8. hey folks (and especially carbo178!) - continuing a discussion we started on another topic - i'm looking for a DSDT that will enable audio for this board, which uses the ALC889 driver. the current one i have causes a kernel panic in what appears to be AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext. see the enclosed picture. this is a bit odd because i patched power management with a BIOS flashback to version 0606 so my version of AICPM is unpatched. i guess the DSDT overwrites that setting maybe? and maybe the DSDT is set up for a newer unpatched BIOS like mine was before i flashed it ,and instead uses NullCPUPowerManagment or possibly a patched version of AICPM? scott
  9. Hi, I've just tried to get a working Yosemite 10.10.1 installation on my rig* and succeeded... for a few minutes :-/ I'm using Clover latest revision with AppleACPIPlatform rollback from 10.9.5 (and a few appriopriate kexts for my mobo) Everything was working fine (including sleep) for a few bootups, then I lost audio & Ethernet without altering anything to my installation. Any clue guys ? *My rig : Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R v2.0 bios rev FH, Xeon X5660, 12GB DDR3 RAM, 2x AMD HD7950, 512GB Crucial SSD (dual boot with Mavericks and W7), an old HDD with the Yosemite installation, plus a few HDDs.
  10. I've been following a guide but am unable to get my audio to work. The guide I've been following is here: http://tonymacx86.bl...or-onboard.html In my extracted DSDT, there is no HDEF device. So I just guessed and copied a working ALC889 HDEF to my DSDT. It compiled, but when I restarted, I still didn't have working audio. I just noticed that there is no AppleHDA under System Information -> Extensions. So it's either that the kext isn't loading or the DSDT is incorrect (or both). I just want to get 2 channel audio working, and I don't care how I do it. Attached is my DSDT. I got audio working with voodooHDA, but there is a distinct and annoying hiss coming through (actually it sounds awful...). I would really like to have it work through the above method. Any thoughts? dsdt.zip
  11. Version v272.18.1 (10.10.4)


    This will enable your analog 6 channel surround sound using AppleHDA's native multi-channel DSP support. Furthermore, all jacks work! Under System Preferences, select Internal Speakers, and there the analog 6 channel surround sound should be. No need to create aggregate device in Audio MIDI Setup! Internal Speakers can be automatically switched to headphone after plugging headphone in. Internal microphone (rear mic) can be automatically switched to Line In (front mic) after plugging front mic in. "Use ambient noise reduction" is available when using Internal microphone (rear mic.)
