Could someone shed some light for me. My display gets all fuzzy after wake from sleep. This only happens during sleep. Before sleep i have full qe/ci and the display is fine. Do anyone have any idea? My card is ATI 4530, device id 1002 9553. Shrike frame buffer.

 

i have your problem in my hakintash system with GE the only thing that can fix it is using ATY_Init.kext instead of GE

i have your problem in my hakintash system with GE the only thing that can fix it is using ATY_Init.kext instead of GE

 

The problem is ATY_Init.kext just doesn't work. I use it and then no ATI kext loaded, no QE/CI.

In verbose mode I find something like this:

 

ATY_Init: Starting

ATY_Init: Card 0x9553 was posted

ATY_Init: quiting for card 0x9553

 

I guess it doesn't regconize my card, even though I change the key ATY, DeviceID to 5395 or 9553 or just don't change. My card is ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4570.

 

Could you please modify and upload the kext for me? In case I did it wrong.

Thanks

I have a problem with my card. It's a Mobility HD4650 in an HP Pavilion DV7-2160eg laptop

 

I have inserted the dual-link patch in dsdt and patched Shrike to: 02 00 00 00 04 00 00 00 09 01 00 00 12 02 00 07

 

I'm running OS X 10.6.8 with legacy kernel.

 

Even though card gets recognized correctly and the dual-link patch is in place I still get blacklit screen on LVDS

I have Sony VAIO EB (1366x768) with HD5650m. Installed 10.7.1.

If I am using AtiConfig=Eulemur internal monitor working (EDID + change res. first time by VNC). But HDMI doesn't work.

If booting without AtiConfig (RadeonFramebuffer), HDMI working, but internal monitor not.

 

Default Eulemur:

0400 0000 1400 0000 0001 0000 0102 0104 
0008 0000 0002 0000 0071 0000 1204 0402

And my TV was detected in System Preferences/Monitors. But on TV "no signal".

 

How I can get Transmiter and Encoder?

I have tried many combinations (8 hours ;):) ) But HDMI still not working.

Maybe you should use Hoolock instead of Eulemur ?

With Hoolock internal display working. HDMI not working.

Try to change Hoolock?

Default:

	00  04  00  00  04  06  00  00  00  01  00  00  21  03  05  01

04  00  00  00  14  02  00  00  00  01  00  00  02  04  01  03 (LVDS)

For LVDS Transmitter 02, which means UNIPHY2:DUALLINK?

But in radeon_bios_decoder internal display UNIPHY.

Why does it work? For Eulemur same (UNIPHY1:DUALLINK).

Maybe bios decoder wrong? And I get wrong HDMI transmitter/encoder?

I try to change Eulemur:

0400 0000 1400 0000 0001 0000 1002 0104   (LVDS UNIPHY+DUAL_LINK)
0008 0000 0002 0000 0071 0000 2105 0405 (HDMI UNIPHY+LINKB)
1000 0000 1000 0000 0000 0000 0010 0001

But HDMI not working (only detected in System Preferences). Interanal monitor working.

Strange thing: If I change HotplugID for LVDC to 00, I get corrupted internal screen.

Modify Uakari for better results. and for HDMI audio you need DSDT fix i think, well im pretty sure. only thing with 5650m's is that if you force your LED EDID then whatever you connect will also be forced using that Display717 file. Unless i think you force all EDID that you connect to the mac.

 

 

***Update***

Removed my forced EDID Display717 file to isolate further issues, just for short testing while I patch connection info, I edited Uakari and can successfully get LVDS to switch on without others. More testing in process.

I'm pretty sure 5650m cards are reading inside MacOSX from 2nd port and not first port like Apple's working, I can get LVDS to power up now, just it all depends on using the right control flags from what I've been observing.

this is from my ati 5870m bios, internal laptop screen not working, and I use nomasus as I see in the ioregistry.

can anyone tell me what is wrong with the LVDS?

I cannot find which ports are matched correctly and which are not. The Laptop only works with external monitor through HDMI output and internal screen recognized by system profiler but when I press detect displays, only the backlight turns on and stays black. I have also made the EDID override but still nothing.

Can anyone help me please?

Hi all!

I'm trying to enable LVDS on ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650 on 10.7.1:

Graphics card was correctly recognized by system only after using patched Chameleon R875 boot file. Also I've forced edid file installed.

HDMI - ok, full resolution, but no audio

 

Also tried other FB such as Uakari, Eulemur - the same result.

 

Is there any way to enable LVDS? Where I'm mistaken?

did you change the other connection to use a different encoder? so that they don't interfere with each other?

 

1000 0000 1000 0000 0000 0000 0001 0101

 

Unfortunately got the same result, internal display is black, backlight is on.

I have same 5650M. LVDS not working like LVDS, only like VGA (or DVI with analog signal = VGA ) (result display type CRT)

 

Take kext from 10.7.1: ATIFramebuffer, ATISupport , ATI5000Controller

 

See my config with working internal screen(like VGA or analog DVI) and hdmi(but like DP)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Also read my 2 last posts in this thread . What are you think about this ?

Dear gurus, could you help to find (and maybe patch) proper framebuffer for such configuration?

can you at least tell us which video card you use?

Oh sorry. ATI 5650m

 

As far as I understand. I need to modify three lines of ATI5000Controller at offset 488680

The last digit must correspondent with OSX sensed:. right?

 

First line must start with 02 00 (LVDS) right?

 

What else I need to modify? must I care about 0x96 and similar?

Title101, unfortunately internal display still not work...

 

CheeseTank, I know this may sound counter-intuitive, but can you give this a go. Set up the line that corresponds to your LVDS exactly as it should be according to the bios dumps - except make it a DVI port, and for the controlflags make sure it supports Analog/VGA DVI output. Then let me know if the internal screen comes to life. (It may be out of range by default, so you might need to vnc to set a resolution it supports, or use edid overrides).

 

It seems a problem many of us have (including Itansan's post above yours), where even with all the correct data edited into our ati-personality of choice, lvds simply doesn't work.. BUT we can manage to get it working as a crt/vga display.

 

I really hope someone finds a *proper* solution to this soon. There are countless posts with people having the same issue, and without proper LVDS support (instead of of the screen being shown as crt) simple things like dithering for 6-bit screens can't be enabled (i.e. the majority of cheap internal 1366x768 screens)..

I started working to fix my video output:

  • I have a Sapphire Radeon 4670 Ultimate (Passive cooling, 3 ports: VGA/DVI/HDMI), and I want to use the DVI output to my 23" monitor
  • Using Chimera 1.5.4 bootloader, with Mac OS X 10.7.2
  • With GraphicsEnabler=No, both DVI and VGA works good, but DVD player and geek bench crashes.
  • With GraphicsEnabler=Yes, VGA works good while DVI is black, and everything seems to work
  • Earlier when I used to use Chalemeon 2.0 RC5, DVI used to give a signal, but the picture was like 256 colors, maybe wrong decoder/FB

 

here is the BIOS dump with radeon dump:

and attached to this post are the screenshots of ioregistry.

 

Currently my monitor is connected with both cables (VGA+DVI) but I am using the VGA input on the screen (as the DVI is blank), technically I am connected to port #0 (from the BIOS Dump), which should be at index '00000000', which has ConnectorType set as DP and ControlFlags set as DP, which are both completely wrong in my case (VGA connector), but for some reason it is giving a signal to my screen.

 

So, if I want to fix my DVI, I should fix line number 3 (which from the BIOS is one with the DVI ports, knowing that the radeon bios declares 4 outputs, while the KEXT driver has only 3 personalities). I should fix the FrameBuffers in the ATI4600Controller.kext by hex editing the above values to some better ones, but I don't know exactly where to change.

 

Currently port #2 (counting from zero) is already set to DVI ConnectorType, but the single-link one (as there is a dual link one, 0x00000004), the ControlFlag seem ok too for DVI (0x0214). this might be also confirmed by the IORegistry screen, the ATI,ActiveFlags=0x10 (Which is != 0x1, according to page 1 of this thread), maybe the features/transmitter/encoder/senseID are wrong?

 

As I read, the SenseID is the most important, but how to calculate it, I didn't really understand the formula, and when you say bits 0-3: are they from the left or the right?

i2cid = (senseid & 0xf-1) + 0x90
senseid = (i2cid & 0xf) + 1

Currently senseID is set to 0x04
0x04 = 0000 0100

from the BIOS Dump
 SenseID = 0x1 = 0000 0001
 i2cid = 0x90 =  1001 0000

What to do next?

 

Update 1:

I tried updating the port #2 to:

0000020 04 00 00 00 - 14 02 00 00 - 00 01 - 00 00 - 00 10 01 05

 

but now the VGA is detected with the wrong resolution, maybe the 3rd row in result of ati_personalities is in reality port #0 of the card, and that's why IORegistryView shows it is @0?
