What method works best for ALC888 sound....?

Recommended Posts

voodohda, efi strings, or tarugas patch....???

 

voodoo seems to work nicely until you put the machine to sleep.

Sound distortion upon wake .....

 

Tarugas patch gives me a KP as soon it patches applehda.kext

 

Not too familiar with the efi string method for sound.....

I have the same motherboard, EP35-DS3L.

To be honest, ALCxxx sound quality sucks, even after patching (DSDT, taruga, etc...)

 

I'm searching for an USB sound adapter / alternative.

a good sounding USB dongle that is cheap

 

that said, I have found that it sometimes has issues with Mic input, but I think thats a bad mic not the dongle.

 

Good luck and happy listening

I'm using DSDT for Audio / GFX / Lan - Audio works with VoodooHDA. But sleep is still a problem. It sleeps fine, but when it wakes up, it freaks out and gives me the ole' beach ball of death.

I attached two kext 'AppleHDA.kext' and 'HDAEnabler.kext' for leopard. I like them better than DSDT and VoodooHDA!

If someone port the "AppleHDA.kext" for SL 64bit.. I would be very grateful!

 

- Altough the sound quality is not as good as DSDT, the output volume is much higher.

- Completly noise-free.

lol, this is my patched applehda, i can recognize it because of the codecverb, and some ".other" little things :D

 

if this one work for you in 32bit, u can use vanilla snow leopard applehda , and my legacy kext, with dsdt or the kabyl HDAenabler for 64bit

 

here is my dsdt HDEF section:

I've done the DSDT patch with audio, network and graphics (last 2 work perfectly) for my EP35-DS4, which has a Realtek ALC889A chipset. I've tried with all possible HDAEnabler's ect without luck, also with the 3 kext's from cparm's package mentioned above without luck. The only way I'm able to get sound is via ALCinject.kext located under /S/L/E (with -x32). I thought the DSDT patch just made injetors unnecessary? What am I doing wrong?

@dabla

 

I can confirm your exp. I have had the same problems. dsdt without probs - no legacy kexts work!

Only ALCInject worked... for me too.

dabla, the DSDT is for ALC888

 

I have generated a DSDT for the ALC889A, so I don't understand what you mean?

I'm ordered the SYBA USB Adapter (aka. Delock in Europe).

 

USA: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16812186046

Europe: http://www.delock.de/produkte/suche/Delock...r_71_61645.html

 

UPDATE

The USB Adapter works like a charm: http://twitpic.com/fyg8x / http://twitpic.com/fyga3

If you don't have 10USD to buy this adapter, you don't need a hackintosh :P Go and use Windows ;)
