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.

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.

Hi Andy

Hi Slice,


thank you for this very good driver that works great!

Although I have tested it until now only with my headset.
But until now the best VoodooHDA ever I've installed on AMD :thumbsup_anim:


Microphone I have not tested , I do not have near me at the moment.

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
