Nvidia GT430 HDMI only 1080i, no sound

Recommended Posts

OK, where to start... Well I am extremely appreciative for the Niresh team coming together and making a simple solution to installing OS X on my new "hackintosh" computer. I was pleased that everything is working, aside from a few loose ends. So, I have an HP computer (a6542p) Pavilion model with an Nvidia GT 430 graphics card. Strangely when booting the computer I am in 1080p, even when the Mac symbol comes up. As soon as I am loaded up to the login screen it is scaled down to 1080i (I know I am basically nitpicking), when I play movies in 1080p format it really shows. I know its not a big deal but it would be nice to understand how to load the drivers for my graphics card (strangely enough, I think it is supported by Macs; I could be wrong though) I would also like to understand how to get sound from the graphics card as Windows could (I know they have actual drivers to help from the manufacturer) . I had a MacBook Pro with the Thunderbolt package, I was able to plug in an HDMI adapter to it where I got sound from the TV and 1080p, so I would think it could be possible. I may be wrong because they are two very different ways of connecting. Any help on this topic is a step forward for me because I have previously downloaded the CUDA drivers for Mac and the kext package for the GT 430 with no success. 

 

Other than that guys, this thing worked like a charm right out of the box. Currently I am dual booting with Windows 8.1; but since I installed OS X I have not logged in to Windows (so boring). 

 

Regards,

@patpoland2004 Getting HDMI Audio to work in OSX is really a major challenge. 

You could try the Inject HDMI Audio option in Chameleon. I heard it works for some people.

If that doesn't work, the only definitive solution is to patch your DSDT which is quite hard.

@Devonic, Thank you very much for the timely response, I have not tried; couldn't imagine it would hurt. Is there a way I can do this without re-installing? I see a lot of posts about a dashboard of some sort that can control the boot loader, I have yet to find it as it is not present in my preferences.

@patpoland2004 Use Chameleon wizard to configure Chameleon. This is the app that i think you were referring to.

@Mention Thanks again man, that is exactly what I was referring to. One last question, 1080p.. is it possible for the GT430? I know the MacBook Pro's came with a GT 430 M which I know is different, but I previously owned a MBP and definately had 1080p as an option. 

 

Many thanks, 

-Patrick

@patpoland2004 If i helped you just like my posts ;)

Depends on your monitor, if your laptop's screen supports a 1920 x 1080 resolution then you're good to go. If the option doesn't seem to be available in Display preferences you have to inject your EDID (preferably using the Clover Bootloader)

Download Kext Utility.

Simply Drag and Drop the kexts (select all of them) into the kext utility window, provide your admin password and it will install them.
