No "Problem Reporting" files attached.
Read FAQ, "Problem Reporting" again. Carefully. Attach all requested files/output.
Use the gen_debug.sh tool mentioned in the FAQ, that way it is less likely you'll omit something.
Hey! PR Files attatched. Thanks for your help.

No ioreg in the attached debug zip. Please check your files carefully before upload.

@RehabMan

Yeah, thats because of that stupid IOREG dump fail, which does not even give me a somewhat descent description of what went wrong. All I can show you is the following:

390267


Do you know how to fix this issue? Thank you again for your time!
BTW: I tried rebooting, and also let it finish up a few times, this time I just quit out of frustration.

Collect ioreg manually if necessary (refer to the FAQ).
Any bug you find in gen_debug.sh should be reported to its author in the gen_debug thread.

Collected IOREG manually now. Is everything correct with my PR files?

Yeah, so audio is working, the speakers are perfect, but: Every time I want to use the audio-jack after about one minute the sound quality turns into garbage. It sounds very distorted and you can't make out most of the audio.

I've now plugged in my headphones - waited that one minute - and dumped everything again. Maybe you can spot some differences in IOREG, but I think that this is just a common problem with my audio-chipset (especially in osx mojave) :(

Thanks!

Look into ALCPlugFix.

I've looked into that some time ago, and now did it again - no result :/. I downloaded the zip which contains the installer, the plist (for autostart I guess), the fix script itself and the hda-verb script.

CodecCommander is installed and I also checked that ALCPlugFix is running in background with ps -elf | grep -i "alc".

Audio still sounds bad after a few seconds of listening... :(
