Focusrite saffire - Is it or isn't it without old kext?

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Right I got a focusrite saffire with a VIA card which doesn't get along well with snow leo's latest AppleFWAudio.kext so I've downgraded to the tiger v1.2.2 as mentioned as a workaround in old thread like this one:




Thing is from reading that and other threads on this issue I'm not 100% sure whether buying a TI card instead would allow me to use the latest FWaudio.kext, some people say they work out of the box and others say they they still have the same issue.


So would someone be able to clearly state whether upgrading to a TI chipset firewire card solved their issue without having to use the ancient tiger kext?


Thanks in advance

Update, I rolled the dice and spent the cash on a belkin TI chipset firewire card.


Working perfectly with latest snow leo kexts.


I guess VIA fire II firewire chipsets are a no go with the saffire and snow.
