Thanks for helping. I wasn't really reporting a problem, but more like asking a question :)
Could you please just tell me whether it makes any difference if I install whatevergreen.kext and lilu.kext in /L/E compared to /E/C/O?

  1. Description of HDMI audio problem: The HDA device randomly appears and disappears everytime I switch on my computer. When it appears, I can happily listen to audio - working flawlessly.
  2. HS 10.13.6(17G65)/ASUS Z370-F/1601/8700K/GTX 1080Ti
  3. Guide followed more than a year ago with many modifications afterwards: www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/330677-successguide-glasgoods-high-sierra-coffeelake-asus-strix-z370-g-i7-8700-gtx1080ti-uhd/
  4. working.zip - HDA working files - notice that here I had all kexts (including AppleALC) in E/C/O/
  5. not-working.zip - HDA not working files - notice that here I installed all kexts (including AppleALC) to L/E/ and removed everything from E/C/O/ except VirtualSMC.
  6. List of kexts:
AppleALC.kext IntelMausiEthernet.kext SMCProcessor.kext USBMap.kext WhateverGreen.kext
CodecCommander.kext Lilu.kext SMCSuperIO.kext VirtualSMC.kext

Thank you for your help!

Not supported on this site
Audio is not correct.
  • Acpi / Fixes / FixHDA = True (checked)
Set to False
HDMI audio is not mentioned, what HDMI audio guide?
removed everything from E/C/O/ except VirtualSMC.
Why?

thought it might help fixing the issue
VirtualSMC.kext requires Lilu.kext in the same directory; not present
Something is injecting trash into the Nvidia connectors (link ...), remove

What graphics card port is the display connected? What display?

OK, but I guess this is not related to my HDA issue now since I have Clover configured with:
System Parameters -> Inject Kexts : Detect
According to my understanding, with this option all the kexts are loaded only from /L/E/ for normal boot and I have both lilu and VirtualSMC there.

It is connected to one of the DP ports to an Acer Predator XB271HU.
Is there a way to get the port ID?
My GPU specs.

Only works with FakeSMC
E/C/k/O/VirtualSMC.kext does not run

See IOReg
Try the other DP ports to determine if the problem is related to the port connected
I tried the other ports and the current one is the only one that works.
