10.7.2 ION 9400M with QE/CI - No HW Acc HD video

Hello Forum members,

 

After trying to install Lion on my Point of View ION 330, I pretty much succeeded. I got QE/Ci working in all of the following ways:

  • graphicsenabler=y combined with Chameleon r1684
  • graphicsenabler=y combined with Chimera 1.6.0 (highest FPS in OpenGL Ext. viewer)
  • graphicsenabler=n combined with added dev ids in NVDANV50Hal.kext and NVDAResman.kext + NVEnabler.kext

Currently I'm using the second option (Chimera) as the performance is the best i could get.

 

The problem I'm experiencing with all of the options mentioned above, is that I can't get hardware acceleration working in Plex, VLC, Boxee (I know the settings for enabling HW acc in these apps).

 

In my osx86 10.6.8 installation I have fluent 1080p playback and I'd really like my Lion 10.7.2 to do the same. Can someone help me find the solution to my problem?

The card must maybe recognized as a mac like 9400m. I have an netbook with ion and graphics via efi-string

This will not work for u because of stuff for integrated display but I assume that on of these:

  <string>NVIDIA GeForce 9400M</string>
 <key>rom-revision</key>
 <string>0x37323433</string>
 <key>subsystem-id</key>
 <string>0x000000b9</string>

values is important for the card to be recognized as HW acc. capable.

iLeopod, thank you for your reply!

 

Still no luck though. I tried the following:

  1. I started with graphicsenabler=y.
  2. Exported the current injection using Lizard.
  3. Replaced model, rom-rev, subsys-id of the generated plist with your part
  4. converted to hex
  5. added to org.chameleon.Boot.plist
  6. Disabled graphicsenabler

UI seems even faster, but still no full hd playback

 

I also tried your complete plist content, same thing: faster UI, no HW acc
