    Radeon RX 4XX/5XX standalone system, AMDRadeonX4250.kext (GVA support H264) does not support HEVC HW

    DVD ??? What's a DVD ??:lol: Never tried transcoding anything to MPEG2. It probably will not work as GPU's do not support "legacy" codecs

    [Success] Gigabyte Z490M Gaming X - i9 10850K - RX580 - OpenCore 0.7.3 4k - Big Sur 11.6 - Video Editing

    Great build. Well done. BTW, your signature for your First hack seems incorrect. You have: "First Hack z77 GA-Z77X-UP5-TH | i7 4770K | AORUS Radeon RX 580" But i7-4770K cannot physically fit on a Z77X-UP5. I think you meant i7-3770K ?

    [GUIDE] Atari VCS (2020) Console

    Great detailed guide. However, you should change the first sentence as it is wrong. It implies some kind of virtual machine on macOS to run Atari VCS. It should read "This is a guide for booting macOS on the Atari VCS natively." It not a guide on how to boot Atari VCS on macOS. Keep up the...

    Radeon RX 4XX/5XX standalone system, AMDRadeonX4250.kext (GVA support H264) does not support HEVC HW

    I have not found a way of enabling HEVC in FCPX/Compressor on a hack that uses the AMD GPU only. There is no magic kext. Those Apple Apps appear to be bypassing standard API's on the macOS or using some sort of back door to encode & decode regarding HEVC. It is bizarre. That's the case with...

    Radeon RX 4XX/5XX standalone system, AMDRadeonX4250.kext (GVA support H264) does not support HEVC HW

    Well done. The reason you have audio issues is that you added device properties to inject layoutid=1 and then in boot-args you used alcid=13. boot-args overrides layoutid value. Just use boot-args method and delete the device-property. Also you have way too many unnecessary device-properties...

    Radeon RX 4XX/5XX standalone system, AMDRadeonX4250.kext (GVA support H264) does not support HEVC HW

    He has it running because he is lucky enough that his CPU supports SSE4.2 instructions.

    Radeon RX 4XX/5XX standalone system, AMDRadeonX4250.kext (GVA support H264) does not support HEVC HW

    Thx but it is unrelated issue. I do not have a problem with the displays and unfair ova is more related to DRM which I do not worry/care about (as I do not play Netflix, prime, appletv, etc on a Mac but on my TV). The HEVC issue is related to the Apple apps. It's works on a real iMacPro1,1...

    Radeon RX 4XX/5XX standalone system, AMDRadeonX4250.kext (GVA support H264) does not support HEVC HW

    First of all, HEVC encoding on RX5xx GPU does NOT work with FCPX or Compressor, only H.264 works (even with iMacPro1,1 Model ID). H/W decode of both H.264 & HEVC works fine. It does work with VideoProc. VideoProc will use the RX570 for encoding H.264 & H.265 (HEVC) but not Apple's Apps...

    [Updated] Stork's Thunderbolt Build: i5-3570K | GA-Z77X-UP5-TH | GTX 760

    Yes & No. Yes it is the same but No it is not safe/permanent. If your BIOS gets screwed or you loose your config, then obviously you loose what you have saved there. Therefore it is pointless doing that. That is why you should save the profile on an EXTERNAL device. I do both. Think about...

    [Updated] Stork's Thunderbolt Build: i5-3570K | GA-Z77X-UP5-TH | GTX 760

    It's a feature of your motherboard BIOS. Look into the motherboard manual. It's in the last menu item "Save & Exit" -> Save Profile and Load Profile:

    [Updated] Stork's Thunderbolt Build: i5-3570K | GA-Z77X-UP5-TH | GTX 760

    USB3 config in the BIOS got screwed up ? Like XHCI handover got disabled ? Or USB3 got disabled ? After setting the BIOS config the way I want, I always save the BIOS Profile onto one of the EFI drives and backup onto a USB stick. This way if the BIOS config ever screws up, I simply load the...

    [Updated] Stork's Thunderbolt Build: i5-3570K | GA-Z77X-UP5-TH | GTX 760

    I've experienced BIOS issues. A few times I had seen BIOS configs wiped. A couple of times I had complete corruption of the BIOS. I had to flick the BIOS switch to Backup and reboot and then reflash the Main BIOS. Once BOTH BIOS's got corrupted and I had to purchase a CH41A external flasher to...

    Power mac g5 front i/o

    There's NO Mic Input on the G5 front I/O. It's just stereo output. Audio Sense pin on the G5 does not work on an ATX motherboard. If you plugin a headphone jack into the G5 socket, then you have to manually switch the audio output to your headphones via Sound Prefs. See here.
