I got the same problem as many more: all my 6 channels work separatly on an ALC888. I tried the aggregate solution but it didnt work. I get sound only through the front speakers. :thumbsup_anim:

Hi there. Just reporting a 2 channel success for my Asus card, installing the Alc883 pkg. I'm using 10.4.8 + semthex kernel.

 

I have 3 ports in the mobo, 2 more in front with the HDAudio cable and an optional Spdif Out using a slot (I don't have that accesory)....

 

First I installed the 3 ports / no digital option, but the Audio MIDI Setup only shows me Stereo. Then installed 3 ports + digital, 6 ports without and with digital. Audio MIDI then gimme lots of options, Quadraphonic and 5.1 and 7.1 and so, but I have only Stereo sound. :rolleyes:

 

Anyway, thanx Skippy!! :thumbsup_anim:

Hello ALC888 experts. Myself and a couple of other ASrock Conroe945-DVI users (ICH7) have been trying to get even a glimmer out of this. We feel close and that possibly are doing something wrong somewhere in the whole process. If anyone has had any success whatsoever down this path, I and several others would be more than ecstatic.

I am having trouble wrapping my head around this thread.

In the end I can't get these drivers to work, hopefully someone can shed some light on my plight.

 

Here is what I have:

ALC883 audio package onboard my Asus P5ND2-SLI mainboard.

I have 6 channel analog out and a coaxial SPDIF out (no SPDIF in)

 

I installed JaS 10.4.8

Originally I modified the AppleAC97Audio.kext which got me 2 channel analog out. My goal is SPDIF surround out, I couldn't care less about inputs.

 

 

So I tried installing the ALC883Audio.pkg. In custom options I select ALCInject and I tried 6 channel + digital. I delete the cache, reboot and get the same AC97 output as before, if I temporarily remove the AC97 kext I get no output. I'm going to try to revert the AC97 kext to the original version tonight. Will this help? Should the system even use this with the new drivers?

I don't know how to remove the previously installed drivers from ALC883 so I just tried the other options. I had the same results though. I guess it installed them concurrently with the old ones? Should I uninstall the others and just try 1? How?

 

I noticed Skippy mentioned problems with systems with no SPDIF In. Does this mean I am out of luck? Should that matter? I noticed there are a lot of references to SPDIF In in the drivers plists, but I have no idea what is going on in there.

 

Can I test the drivers without rebooting? Should kextload AppleHDA work or do i need to do something with ALCInject?

 

Thanks for any help you can give me. And thanks Skippy for all the Driver Work.

Hi, I have Higabyte DS3 mobo with ALC883 chip, but I can`t get the 6-channel sound working.

 

Stereo works fine, 6 channel works during calibration, but the Apply button won`t actually do anything. Itunes still works in stereo, and when I go back to audio setup I see Stereo in settings, not Multichannel. Any Idea what it could be?

AzaliaAudio.pkg should give 2ch output on most High Def Audio chipsets (updated v1.1)

AzaliaAudio.pkg.zip

 

Thank a lot man.

 

Now everything more or less works. For sure there are certainly limitations but I never used Mac before so it's difficult for me to compare.

ALC883.kext output works on Asus P5L-VM 1394. Unsure whether input is working - the bar moves in system prefs with a mic connected but there is no loopback.

 

edit: tested with 'AudioRecorder' - input is working 100%

 

Amazing work.

Can I use AzaliaAudio.pkg on 10.4.6 (Jas)? I'm so weary of Kernel Panics now.

 

I've already tried removign AppleHDA and adding my RealTek ALC862 Audio (VEN: 10EC, DEV: 0862, Audio) to the AppleAzalia.kext and regenerating the kextcache, but still no sound. I have a Toshiba M115-S3094 laptop.

 

Thanks guys!

I made the appleazaliaaudio.pkg with the 10.4.8 kext, so it might not work with older version's. But, it shouldn't cause a kernel panic, it just won't work.

 

I have stopped working on these kext because Taruga has released his patcher. His patcher is more advanced than these kext and is improving almost daily. Great work Taruga!

My audio works great. I am a Mac n00b so this has been a great learning experience for me.

Hi Skippy,

How are you doing? Forgive me for being daft , but I’m stuck with my audio thing. I’m using an Intel 946GZIS mobo that has got HD. Now it *does not* have any digi o/p. I’m not certain about the exact ALC88* number. I have downloaded all the three packages and only the regular one gives me a vol control icon on the "top bar". I see the iTunes play tracks but there is *no output* from the speakers. Taruga’s patcher is making the OS crash and I’m getting a "Push restart button" screen as soon as I apply the patch. Please let me know if you’d need any further details but please help me.

AzaliaAudio.pkg gave me icon and HD output in audio pref but no sound from speakers or headphone on my ALC660/861

Yes, I've edited it with my card's specific specs

 

and Taruga's Patcher doesn't work on my card.

JESUS! I JUST WANT SOUND OUT! SOME NOISE ON MY SPEAKERS!

Any ideias?

 

thanks,

jjduro

I've just installed 10.4.6 (8.4.1) on an ASRock 775i945GZ. Everything works apart from the sound (ALC888). Just basic stereo out is all i want really. Is there any solutions for this setup that i could try. I can't update to 10.4.8 either cos then my LAN won't work, and i did try everything with that :(

If you have to work, you shouldn't get a hackintosh :)

 

Anyway, you can overcome the problem with any USB/FW sound interface. For example usb Altec Lansing speakers sound really nice.
