VoodooHDA 2.8.5 for Mavericks (Slice + AnV) (Signed!)

Thank you, SPDIF works great on my ALC892, better than AppleHDA cause I got encoded digital audio in MIDI settings now. AC3 and DTS play perfect and it switches automatically to encoded audio. There are some issues though:

 

1. Each setting has 192khz init value, maybe it's better to set it to 44khz? with 192 I don't get sound.

 

2. On my HD4000 HDMI there is no playback at all. Can't play any song, the stream doesn't even start. 

 

3. Static hiss on analog audio, vectorize=true in info.plist doesn't help. (see edit3)

 

4. In prefpane I see only my NVIDIA 660 TI with four audio ports. No ALC892 and no HD4000 ports. (see edit3)

 

PS: Didn't test any inputs yet.

 

EDIT: dump added.

EDIT2: lspci dump and dsdt added.

 

EDIT3: Issue with static hiss (point 3) was solved with disabling nvidia card by setting: <key>IOPCIPrimaryMatch</key><string>0x1E208086</string> 

So apparently the problem is the settings don't get initialized for internal HDA when nvidia is used. Also I can see all internal ports in prefpane now.

Working just fine with my HP Envy 17t-3200 with Beats Audio (and Subwoofer working by adding to the Nodes to Patch section).

Once again a great job Andy, can not wait for the weekend to test this with my sound card. :D

It sorts of works better than the previous build (ALC892);

 

- less noise per volume

- finally I can switch between my usb and onboard audio (was broken in the version I used)

 

 

 

There are 2 little snags that hold it back from being perfect for me:

 

- Doesn't show up in prefpane, but I can live with that

- Turning  the volume up and down works but has a very noticeable delay.

Using shift + volume keys doesn't give this delay, and the delay wasn't there with previous builds.

 

 

So overal it's a pretty good and I like it.

The prefpane entries will appear if you remove your graphics card by modifying the info.plist, see http://olarila.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=454

 

I don't have the delay with alc892, try removing com.apple.audio.DeviceSettings.plist and com.apple.audio.SystemSettings.plist from /Library/Preferences/Audio and reboot, as described in the linked post above.

Doesn't remove the delay but does fix the prefpanel (had no doubt on that, btw also using a 660 Ti).

 

What's also noticeable about this delay; if you press the keys fast there's more of a delay than if you press it slowly 1 at a time.

Before (with regular 2.8.5 build) I didn't have this behaviour.

When I got some more time I might just compare the 2 for obvious changes in the .plist itself, about best I can do.

 

Just realized this: the shift + volume buttons just work like the regular way right now, while shift + volume buttons should be lineair but they are not.

Sorry Andy but your sources based on 2.7.0 even without Zenith432 improvements, without HDMI, Multichannel, many controllers missing.

I think you should look more carefully on sources 2.8.4

svn checkout svn://svn.code.sf.net/p/voodoohda/code/ voodoohda-code

    • Baio77 per me ciò che hai scritto è abbastanza "arabo" non ho capito nulla... comunque mi sono rivolto prevalentemente a questo forum per sistemare delle cose che non funzionavano e molto gentilmente Gengik me le ha sistemate, facendo lui però... io ho solo capito che l'impostazione per la grafica non va messa perché crea fastidiosi sfarfallii all'interno delle applicazioni nonché al finder nella parte superiore a sinistra (se leggi i post precedenti trovi le descrizioni)... stop sono riuscito a risolvere solo questa cosa da me leggendo anche in altri forum  proverò il tuo config.plist pulito e farò sapere. Grazie dell'aiuto
    •   Thank you Baio77. Here is my CLOVER folder and the Hack info. 
            For Some Reason I can't upload my CLOVER folder. But here you can download...
      https://www.dropbox.com/s/vjprxs1idtj9pt7/CLOVER.zip?dl=0     Thank you again!!!   HackInfo_Report.zip
    • The brightness is NOT from Sierra, in my signature you find tools with which to give info on your system .....
      Post Hack Info and the clover folder ......
      Only in this way can I help you ......
    • Few more minutes to go before going live again with https://OSXLatitude.com
          So you can lock this topic again @Allan Hopefully for a bit longer than a couple of weeks this time hehe.
    • ok, I am having a weird glitch with my Primary bios after modding it myself. can I get some help getting a Clean osmosis modded (for High Sierra and beyond) Bios Image?   https://www.gigabyte.com/us/Motherboard/GA-Z87X-UD5-TH-rev-1x#support-dl   the version I have always stuck with was F4, because the F5d.  I use a custom iMac 14,2 configuration that has been stable, the issues I have with stability come from not being able to get Access to the Bios, and prior to my attempt to mod it has been stable with up to High Sierra using clover, and up to Sierra with my very very old Ozmosis 894m F4 rom. I am not opposed to installing Ozmosis on the EFI Partition, But Gigabyte locked the Bios loading .efi Files, there is no shell to Force it to load HFS+ or APFS drivers.   so what I am asking for is assistance ether unlocking a Shell for my Bios, or getting a bios with the APFS, HFS+, and Ozmosis related files in it.   thanks again for everyones assistance. HBP
