Looks great. Crystal clear; wish I'd started this whole process yesterday instead ;) Do you want me to reply here or there in the future?

1) Prior to completing all the steps in your guide, using CloverALC, 2-channel headphone audio was already working successfully BUT there was no HDMI audio device present in the Sound Settings.

2) Now, there's an HDMI audio device (named "AAA"), which works. There's no way to adjust the balance on the HDMI audio device, but maybe that's normal? 2-channel analog audio is still working fine, but I can't tell if that's because of CloverALC.

Is there anything else? I don't think there's anything else. Now, user interface sound effects (the little "boop" you hear when, e.g., you try to tab-complete at the command line but there's more than one possible result) stay on even when I disable them in sound settings, for all devices, but that's probably a separate issue, right? Also, unfortunately, I don't have any devices to test digital audio out on.

There. I'll move the post (and this reponse) from here.

Edit: Post moved from reply to this post/thread: http://www.tonymacx86.com/yosemite-desktop-support/163379-gigabyte-brix-gb-bxi5h-4200-a-3.html#post1065927

1) Prior to completing all the steps in your guide, using CloverALC, 2-channel headphone audio was already working successfully BUT there was no HDMI audio device present in the Sound Settings.
So just to confirm, you have both channels working either with my AppleHDA_ALC269 (which is based on the CloverALC files from toleda) or with CloverALC from toleda himself?

If true, then it means toleda's trouble when he had this same unit (he passed the unit on to me) was a hardware problem... and my trouble with it the same... a hardware problem that resulted in total failure eventually.

But please confirm you've tested with the procedures from my guide and both channels work.

I don't plan to fix my unit (I think it is an eval unit, so probably no warranty) as I only need HDMI audio anyway.

2) Now, there's an HDMI audio device (named "AAA"), which works. There's no way to adjust the balance on the HDMI audio device, but maybe that's normal? 2-channel analog audio is still working fine, but I can't tell if that's because of CloverALC.
The name comes from the device you have plugged in, so your monitor must be "AAA"... No balance or volume controls for HDMI audio. Those controls are on the device itself.

Is there anything else? I don't think there's anything else.
I would only like to know if you get equal results with my guide (as far as audio) as you do with CloverALC. If not, then I'll have to look into what I did wrong/different from CloverALC from toleda.

And please confirm both channels working from headphone...

Now, user interface sound effects (the little "boop" you hear when, e.g., you try to tab-complete at the command line but there's more than one possible result) stay on even when I disable them in sound settings, for all devices, but that's probably a separate issue, right?

This is a bug in Yosemite itself. Confirmed on my Apple MacBookAir6,2.

Correct.

I can tell you that I get equal results with CloverALC and with BOTH CloverALC AND your guide. To be honest, I don't really understand what CloverALC does, so I don't know whether your patch overwrote the changes it made, or whether those changes persisted and run concurrently with your patch.

Short of doing a fresh install with this guide and without CloverALC, I don't know how to isolate the effects of one vs. the other. If there's some way I can test this out for you (even a fresh install - it really wouldn't be that much trouble), just let me know.

If you could, try a fresh install using only the guide here. It needs to be tested by someone other than me anyway.

RehabMan,

GB-BXi5

Installed with your install config.plist ok
Installed Tools ok
Installed brix.git ok
./download.sh ok
./install_downloads.sh not ok

Appears to of downloaded files fine, on install_downloads it was doing its thing then two messages improper disk removal. Reboots itself neither my usb keyboard or logiteck k400 will let me type in password. Can't get it to recognize my Bluetooth keyboard/ mouse either (No Bluetooth as expected) I'll try again just odd behavior.+ Seems to mess up USB.

2nd Install same result: Time to start looking...

What version of OS X? What hardware?

Post EFI/Clover folder.

Note: If you don't have exactly the same hardware, you can't follow the guide blindly.
