[SOLVED] [Issue] Mac OS X Lion Audio

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

To give an overview of my experience with Hackintosh, I installed my first Mac bootable successfully 2 days ago. I'm currently running Mac OS X Lion functionally with audio, graphics, mouse, keyboard, etcetera working.

 

My system:

Graphic Card:

- nVidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) 1GB GDDR5

Monitors:

- Dell 21" LCD (1920x1080)

- Acer 23" LCD (1920x1080)

RAM:

- Corsair Vengeance 4GB DDR3

- Corsair Vengeance 4GB DDR3

Processor:

- Intel Core i5-2500k Sandy Bridge QuadCore 3.3GHz

MOBO:

- ASUS P8P67 PRO (B3/Digi+VRM, BT Go, UEFI BIOS, USB3/SATA6, SLI)

 

The main dilemma I am encountering right now is the inability to use my headset (USB). I have a Tritton AX Pro headset connected to a Dolby Digital mixer (the only device my headset will attach to), which is connect via USB to my on-board sound card.

As shown in the attachment, the selected devices (C-Media USB Audio Device) for both input and output seem to be recognized but have no functionality. I cannot hear any sound nor can the microphone indicator pick up any audio at all. I've searched countless hours for this is the only remaining issue that really matters to me at this point. I use my headset for Skype/miscellaneous communication and my external speakers for liesure.

 

I've tried installing several kexts (VoodooHDA.kext, CMI8738PCIAudioDriver.kext, ...), some leading to kernel panics even (to which I resorted in re-installing from my Lion USB installer).

 

These are all the .kexts that I have installed:

Some I could live without (such as the ATIs) but would rather not mess with anything. Would rather not go through another kernel panic :/

 

Is there any solution to this? Or any other additional information needed?

Has no one tried a C-Media device (or AX Pro headset) with Hackintosh yet? It's being detected, just no input or output. I've searched countless hours scrounging through Google to no avail :/

I have a C-media USB headset. Never had any problems with it. Worked OOTB without any special drivers/kexts.

Never tried it in Lion, though. Will try today and report back. :wacko:

---------------

Update: Tried in Lion (SystemOne in my sig) - no probs @all. Working fine. Maybe you should try to revert everything back to vanilla?

Thanks, martin.

 

Seems I was foolish and didn't even consider it could have been the USB port that the headset was plugged into.

 

post-874510-1316157492_thumb.png

 

As shown, it was attached to a USB Super-Speed Bus as compared to the USB High-Speed Bus. I plugged it into a High-Speed port and it worked fine. The speed of a High-Speed Bus is only 12 Mb/sec, though, as the Super-Speed Bus is 480 Mb/sec (obviously preferable :)). I'm probably missing kexts to use my Super-Speed Bus ports I would assume. That's going to become really annoying..

 

I'm not too familiar with USB ports or their infrastructures, especially their compatibility with Mac, so what is to be done about these Super-Speed Bus ports?

as far as i know, this only became an issue on Lion and the latest Sandy Bridge P67 chipsets. well, at least for me it was. i'm also using a USB digital audio converter for my audio out and until i found the 'right' USB port it would occasionally have issues at boot recognizing the audio device and i'd get no sound. on 10.6 with my old P45 system this was never an issue.

 

and you should never, ever need to install or muck with kexts for USB audio devices. that's one of the perks in using them over trying to hack the internal sound chipsets to work. :)

I had similar issue and no amount of switching usb ports would allow for my USB headset to be recognized or hear sound or use mic. I found this interesting article online http://openradar.appspot.com/11427549 about

AppleUSBAudio.kext lacks valid OSBundleCompatibleVersion key / 10.7.4 (11E53)

 

so I tried rolling back this kext to earlier 2.7.9 version and rebuilt cache repaired permissions etc. reboot. Went to sound prefs and BAMM! USB Headset is now recognized and working. This was on a Dell d630 Laptop running 10.7.4 Lion hope it helps someone.
