The voodoo 2.7.2 volume fix is a great fix indeed. Thanks for the great work and sharing this.

Is there an updated voodoohdahelper and org.voodoo.driver.voodoohdahelper.plist.

Seems my Prefpane Settings are getting reset on reboot and the current Voodoohdahelper gets an Unknown flag when I run the it.

I took the sources. Sorry, it is for
CODE
MODULE_SUPPORTED_DEVICE("{{Creative Labs, Sound Blaster X-Fi}");

Device ID = 0x00051102 and 0x000b1102
that is not HDA standard. It seems to be quite different from Extreme and Titanium.



Here Slice, I downloaded the linux open-source one directly from my sound cards driver support site. In this case, my card is the PCI Express X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty Champion Series. The other one must have been a generic one or something.

Yes, I know. The protocol is changed so old voodooHelper can't work with 2.7.1 and above. If some programmer recompiles it with new "Share.h" then it may become working again.

Also every Lineout should output the noise in the Channel Check from Audio/Midi Setup.

When you use this AC3 Test File with the Xfi+Voodoohda the 5.1 Aggregate Device outputs nothing and Lineout green still clones it up to all Lineouts ( and left-right stereo when you unplug other Lineouts)

[attachment=2573:ChannelCheck48.ac3.zip]

Now my investigations. Sigmatel9228 have outputs to LineOut and to Headphone so I can create Quadro aggregate device.

Two configs
1. Snow 10.6.4 with VoodooHDA 2.7.2
With MPlayerOSXExtended I can hear all channels... in Stereo headphones. One output!
Attached File  Screen_shot_2010_10_05_at_11.29.53.png ( 79.56K ) Number of downloads: 172

With VLC I can hear only two channels in one output. Nothing more.
Yes, AudioMIDISetup give me SSSSSS in any output.

2. Leapard 10.5.8 with AppleHDA (SIC!)
Same aggregate device.
Only one outputs works. I hear "Left surround channel" and "Right surround channel".
There is no Virtual surround for headphone.

Why it is happen? The answer I saw here

Yes, the sound file is really multichannel. But it has only one stream! While Aggregate device suppose to put different streams into different speakers.

Some solution I see in preferences of the MPlayerOSXExtended - create Virtual surround 5.1 for Stereo output.

Real 5.1 or 7.1 sound is possible only with digital output having 8 channels in ONE stream.

mh...no, i dont know what you mean ?!
Ive "Real Multichannel Audio" (Lineout Analog)and I can playback every as you say "one Stream Audio File" with my 5.1 Aggregate Device perfectly fine in Snow Leopard and my Via VTS 17081S
Stereo/Mono works and 5.1/7.1 works, in all Players with 5.1 Agg. Device
In Audio Editors i can mute/solo every single Channel and the Output is correct in the specified Speaker.

Every 5.1 /DTS,AC3,FLAC,WMA..)Surround file has "discrete 6 channels".Aggregate Device is a simple output Channel routing/coupling smile.gif And is independent from Source Audio Files. Ofcourse a Decoder, in this case AC3 Decoder, splits/unwraps the Channels back to discrete 6 Channels (to PCM) and a proper Agg. Device will route it to the correct Speaker..thats all and how a Agg Device work.
SPDIF/HDMI sends the same Stream trough one Wire and the Receiver decodes it back to Analog.

Xfi wont work here because theres a Problem with Voodoohda Driver. Because all Lineouts except the Green one doenst work correctly.

Can you make Tests with real 5.1 Device/Speakers ? Its hard to test 6 Discrete Channels with a Headphone/virt.Surround or 4 Speaker Setup?

could you give me a general idea on how to do this? I've just been using the binaries from the main page.

Thanks....if someone else could compile it i could also test it....I really love this new voodooHDA, before this version, i couldn't hear a youtube video without headphones

I have ALC663....it's almost like enabling "enhanced stereo" turns on some sort of amplifier


A new voodoohelper would be very nice....but, is there any way to just hard code our settings into voodoo in lieu of that?


edit:

I tried to build this, but i just dont' know nearly enough about xcode.....if someone else could help a brother out i would be really appreciative

You don't mention a number of streams. Look my screenshots.
I test with 4 speakers in two stereo jacks. With AppleHDA

I agree that VoodooHDA is not correctly set other lineouts for Creative card except green because it is not intended for its. It is wonder that it partially works.
Give me ioreg. I want to look Creative PCI Chip ID (not codec!).
And, if you can, locate the chip on the device and tell me the model.
One moment.
Any sound card consist of generally two chips.
One is PCI controller. In my case it is Intel HDA Controller ICH8M.
Second is Sound codec. In my case it is Sigmatel9228.
Understand difference?
For Creative I know the codec. I want to know PCI HDA controller to find its datasheet.

Its a X-fi Titanium Fatality ? In this Case its the same Chip as my non fatality (lower Xram should not affect Voodoohda Functionality)

OK. Now I see
PCI Controller = 0x000b1102
Sound codec = 0x000d1102

Can you look onto the chip and make a photo of it's title?

Yes, it is. But no datasheet available only marketing brochure.
But not so bad. Sound Blaster sources have description for the 20K2. Will study.

Slice, Here's a good link that shows some good tech specs about the chipset / card with chip pics, etc.

It's not in English, but seems to show what each chip is and good close-up pics of them.

ok, fine
I really really hope you can make a fixed VoodooHDA for our Xfi Titaniums Cards. It would be a huge improvement for my "hackintosh". Ofcourse the Via 1708S sounds not bad and surround works perfectly fine, but Xfi is a big Step:)

By the Way.. Ive one big Problem left "generally" with VoodooHDA. Its the same with X-fi and Onboard Sound.
I use my System without DSDT (because there no proper DSDT availabele for my Asus P7P55LX).
Everything works perfect (except Sleep). But i get serious Sound cracking/distortion when i use VoodooHDA without NullCPUPowermanagment.kext. As soon i delete this Kext the cracking comes back

Do you know a fix for it ?
