OSX LION 10.7.3

 

Ok i have my sound working, but i wish to know how to edit Voodoo plist? I open up VoodooHDA but i cant select my sound card, it will only let me select HDMI card and nothing else. From what i have read up i need to the VoodooHDA plist to configure my sound card to show.

If the sound is working without voodoohda it is working with the applehda.kext. So i don't understand what the problem is.

I install Lion, then used lion [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url], and selected VoodooHDA 2.7.3 to get sound. When i reboot, i go to System Preferences / VoodooHDA. In there i can only select the HDMI. I wish to select my Sound Card. From what i have read up on i need to edit voodooHDA PLIST file and replace the key IOPCIClassMatch with IOPCIPrimaryMatch and put the PCI ID of my audio card in string.

OK i have it sorted

  • VoodooHDA only showing HDMI audio
  • Backup with time machine
  • Open Teminal
  • cp /System/Library/Extensions/VoodooHDA.kext/Contents/Info.plist to desktop
  • nano Info.plist
  • Look for IOPCIClassMatch and replace with IOPCIPrimaryMatch
  • Change string to your audio device and vendor ID
  • ctrl-o / ctrl-x
  • cp Info.plist back to /System/Library/Extensions/VoodooHDA.kext/Contents/
  • run Kext Utility
  • Reboot

So now VoodooHDA is showing all audio ports on my computer, and i can select my Audio Card.
