Just testing the 1.3.6-version AppleALC kext. The sound disappeared after some sound-idle time (e.g., do not make any sound for 10 minutes).

Hi,

I have an ASrock Z390M-ITX/ac mini ITX board with i3 8100 running with iGPU only.
This board has a Realtek ALC892 chip.
Lilu, AppleALC, WhateverGreen among the drivers.
I'm using a layout 2

Everything work. Patched video connectors thanks to Hackingtool etc etc.
Audio works, BUT holy cow how bad the quality is, especially through Bluetooth using a DW1560 module.
I was using a Gigabyte Z370N WiFi before.
Audio is actually distorted through bluetooth.
Any suggestion?

Thanks a lot.

Bluetooth audio does not use AppleHDA.kext, off topic.
Do you confirm the difference between ALC 892 and ALC 1220 is so big you can actually hear it with your headphones?
I didn't expect audio quality to be this different.
Where should I look for Bluetooth Audio?

I have ALC294 codec on ASUS Vivobook X542UA.
Internal microphone doesn't work, but there is 2 * Line In devices appears.

What should I do to get working Internal Mic? Debug files attached, codec dumped into Clover/Misc.
Ext headphones/mic works normally, when attached.
