Realtek ALC888 - Simply Getting Audio To Work


LightWarrior
 Share

Recommended Posts

I have been trying forever to get my audio to work.

 

System Specs:

  • Gateway SX2801-07e
  • Intel Pentium E5700
  • 6GB DDR3 RAM
  • Motherboard: DIG43L/GREYHOUND GATEWAY SX2801-07E LGA775
  • Manually Added Geforce 210 Video card to PCIe slot

 

I'd like to start fresh and simple and have someone awesome tell me what to do in the simplest way possible.... please  :mrgreen:

 

Currently the system profiler says nothing about audio:

ScreenShot2014-08-18at32727PM_zps064bbf1

 

I booted linux and got a codec_dump.txt

 

I believe this is a Realtek ALC888...

 

But with nothing being displayed in the system profiler

it leads me to believe that before adding kexts 

we will need to get OSX to recognize the device...

 

How does one do that?

 

and then what next?

 

also please inspect the codec dump blow:

 

Thank you for your help!

here is where it got a little weird for me...

 

I googled information on how to get this to work: 00:1b.0 Audio device [0403]: Intel Corporation 82801JI (ICH10 Family) HD Audio Controller [8086:3a3e] 

 

That led me to this guide which led me to believe it was Realtek ALC1200

 

I tried to follow the guide to the best of my ability and was having trouble understand how DSDT works... I still don't get the whole  HDEF, DTGP, patches, fixes, etc... 

 

So I wrote a post in another forum trying to better my understanding of DSDT, and was told I needed to get codec_dump.txt in linux to know exactly what to do...since then they haven't been much help in making sense of what to do

 

I still don't understand how device ids, vendor ids, hex, and all that stuff actually works together.

 

After the codec dump in linux: it reads that is Realtek888.. and that really through me for a loop. 

 

I started trying to figure things out like patching AppleHDA and patching DSDT... but I'm starting to become lost at sea... can someone throw me a life preserver?

 

Thats where I'm at.

 

What would you guys suggest?

 

Thanks :)

Did you try any version of VoodooHDA at all? Versions 2.7.x or v2.8.x ?

 

My Dell Vostro 200 has built-in ALC888 (ICH9 controller with PCI id 8086:293e) and I get perfect audio with the VoodooHDA v2.8.1 that's was installed initially. Never changed it since.

 

I would tend to believe the IM thread that mentions ALC1200 and would attempt the DSDT edit provided. If you don't know how to do it, just post your extracted raw DSDT (extract it with tools such as DSDTEditor or Chameleon Wizard, having booted without any DSDT file) and we'll look at it.

 

Whilst you're at it, also post a saved output of IORegistryExplorer (again having booted without any DSDT file).

In the very beginning of my audio journey I tried voodoo hda but I hadn't a clue on how to install it properly... with so many versions available I didn't know which one to use. what is the best way to go about using voodoo hda to get audio to work?

 

I could not figure out how to upload a file to this forum so I put the dsdt publicly available on my goofle drive:

 

 
and the here is my IORegistryExplore output:
 
Thank you very much!

Installation of kexts is pretty simple:

  • on a myHack installation, you simply copy them to /Extra/Extensions and then run myFix (quick). That takes care of everything, you just have to reboot
  • on other types of installation, you can use tools such as Kext Wizard that will install the kexts to /S/L/E, repair permissions and rebuild cache
  • you may also do it yourself manually: copy kexts to /S/L/E + repair permissions + rebuild cache if you know of find the commmands

 

VoodooHDA clashes with vanilla AppleHDA, so make sure you also use AppleHDADisabler kext alongside. Voodoo audio kexts are found all over the Internet as kext packs or as installation packages. It must be one of the most common and easiest things to install on a Hack. Try them one by one, from the early v2.7.x to the latest v2.8.5 (or is it v2.8.6?). Once you find one that works, you may have to adjust the plist if you have persistent background silent noise.

Thank you!

 

would you suggest trying Voodoohda before the ALC1200 DSDT method?

 

I still haven't upgraded mavericks, I'm currently at 10.9.1, will voodoo effect my future updates?

 

Attached is my compressed files:

 

  • Dsdt.aml
  • Dsdt.dsl
  • Ioregistryexplorer output

 

What is this Ioregistry? could you explain that please?

 

You are awesome!

VoodooHDA will not readily affect your future updates no; audio may no longer work after an OS X update and you could then find yourself looking at updating VoodooHDA too, but only one way of knowing after you possibly get audio working with Voodoo.

 

It's easily installed and removed if need be.

 

Could you please create your IOReg output with the attached copy of IORegistryExplorer v2.0. Later versions can give issues.
