ALC887VD; AppleHDA loads, devices show, still no audio.

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts



I've been trying to get this audio to work properly for a few weeks now, so far unsuccessfully.


Here's where I'm at:I've edited my DSDT properly, I dumped my codecs and got my verbs, I tried to patch my own AppleHDA (but I failed miserably :lol:, so instead I downloaded one of two 10.8.2 ALC887 AppleHDA.kexts found on osx86.net, though I only replaced the binary, since I had already edited my layout and pathmaps and pin configs) With that, I boot and get a single sound assertion from AppleHDAController (I've noticed a few others triggered under specific circumstances: trying to change the sample rate or bit-depth in the Audio/MIDI Setup, for example) but otherwise AppleHDA appears to load properly.


My IOReg shows AppleHDA and all its components loaded, it shows several HDAStreams, etc etc. In devices, I can see a Line-in, Speakers, a Line-Out and a Digital Out.


If I connect my headphones to the appropriate port and try changing the output volume I get a single, relatively loud "POP" and then nothing. So, it happens the first time a sound would be output through the phones after being plugged in, basically.


And I have tried editing everything I can think off, with no success. Either I break it and the Devices stop showing or just nothing changes.


Attached are the a screenshot , the DSDT I'm using and the IORegistry. So far, the only "weird" thing I've been able to notice is under "AppleHDADriver", the "PowerProfile" has "CurrentPowerLevel", "IdlePowerLevel" and "MaxPowerLimit" all set to 0x0. I have no idea if this is at all related but from the symptoms it seems to me like it could be a power issue?


If not, maybe someone else will have a better answer?

I gave up getting ALC887 working on my hack, which does not need dsdt. I think you should research a custom kext for it at www.kexts.com, but i really don't if you'll find sty, since i myself didn't bother.

Same thing happened to me with ALC662, which is why I got a board with 887 (which, to be fair, most people can get to work)

Did you have a similar issue, though, or could you just never get the Devices to show, as per usual AppleHDA issues?

      Buonasera ragazzi,
      grazie all'aiuto di questo forum, sono riuscito qualche mese fa a configurare il mio portatile e ne sono pienamente soddisfatto. Ora mi è sorto un dubbio, per poter utilizzare la porta HDMI esterna per collegare il portatile ad un monitor cosa dovrei fare? Ho letto che c'è la possibilità che questo non possa essere possibile, per via del fatto che ho disabilitato la GTX950M e di conseguenza essa portava il segnale "all'esterno". A voi cosa risulta? Riuscireste a darmi una mano?
      Grazie anticipatamente.

      Buonasera a tutti, ho installato con successo macOS High Sierra 10.13 su un notebook Toshiba C660 con le seguenti caratteristiche:
      Intel Core i5 2410M Ram 4 GB Chipset Intel HM65 Wi-Fi + BT Atheros AR5B195 (AR9285+ AR3011 Combo) Geforce NVIDIA 315M 1024MB Audio Realtek ALC269 Funziona più o meno tutto, o meglio funzionava poiché ho effettuato l'aggiornamento da macOS 10.3 a macOS 10.3.3 e non ha più funzionato l'audio. Fino alla versione 10.3 ero riuscito a farlo funzionare grazie ad AppleALC.kext cui dipende da Lilu.kext. Ovviamente entrambi i Kext sono aggiornati alle ultime versioni disponibili, ed inutile dire che ho provato più volte a reinstallarli. Si trovano sia in S/L/E che nella partizione EFI dedicata di Clover. Prima durante il boot in verbose vedevo qualcosa come "Sound assertion in AppleHDAController at line 451", cosa che non vedo più dopo l'aggiornamento. Una volta avviato, l'icona dell'audio è praticamente grigia, mentre dalle impostazioni dice "Non è stato trovato nessun dispositivo di uscita".
      Ringrazio chiunque voglia aiutarmi.
