You have it plugged into the input jack and not the output. Try the green one right below that.

EDIT: 4/11/2020
If you have installed or will install Mojave or Catalina on your HP 6300/8300 you should be following Sniki's guides and use the config.plist he provides to get your audio and Mic working. If you are staying with High Sierra it is now suggested that you use AppleALC.kext and Lilu.kext (attached below) installed to /L/E (Library/Extensions).

The only change you'll need to make to your config.plist is by using Clover Configurator and adding the following in Devices -> Properties Make sure to make the changes exactly as shown in the screenshot.

Original post: How to Activate ALC221 Audio and your Front Microphone Jack
In post #2 of this thread, I posted a guide to patch your DSDT for working ALC221 audio. That patch doesn't enable the front combo Mic/Headphone jack. If you absolutely need that Mic input to work, you can now use an SSDT and the Codec Commander kext + a minor config.plist edit to get a working Mic jack . If you don't use that front mic jack, simply continue to use your previously patched DSDT for working ALC221 audio. Credit for the ALC221 SSDT.aml goes to: Sniki

0. Remove the VoodooHDA and AppleHDA Disabler kexts if you had installed those previously.

  1. Remove your patched DSDT from Clover/ACPI/patched and put it in a folder to keep as a backup option.
  2. Back up your current working Clover config.plist. You could put it in the same folder as your patched DSDT.
(this is done in case your edits don't work or the new config.plist gets corrupted some how.)

3. Open your system drive's Clover config.plist with a plist editor and make the following change of the Audio Layout ID from 11 to 0. (The DSDT patching guide suggested the change to 11. Yours may already be set to 0)

377940


4. Edit your system drive's Clover config.plist with the following entry in the Devices section. It should be entered just after the Inject Audio Layout ID section shown above. (Use a plist editor like PlistEdit Pro or BBedit to make the edit. Do not use the Mac text edit app)

Code:
<key>Properties</key>
<dict>
      <key>PciRoot(0)/Pci(0x1b,0)</key>
      <dict>
          <key>#Comment</key>
          <string>Realtek ALC221 Audio Configuration</string>
          <key>hda-gfx</key>
          <string>onboard-1</string>
          <key>layout-id</key>
          <integer>11</integer>
      </dict>
</dict>

Here's how it should look when you've finished the edit:

  1. Download the two attached files, RehabMan-Codec Commander kext and the SSDT for ALC221
  2. Install Codec Commander to /L/E/ with Kextbeast
  3. Drag and drop the SSDT-ALC221.aml into your Clover/ACPI/patched folder
  4. Make sure you've got the latest versions of Lilu and AppleALC kexts installed to /L/E
  5. Reboot and test out your front combo mic/headphone jack

While in Clover Configurator, change Devices -> Audio -> Inject change this value back to 0 if you had previously changed it to 11 after you patched your DSDT for ALC221

I need a bit of help with #3. I opened the config.plist file with PlistEdit Pro and found the devices section, but the properties section is no where to be seen. Is there any way you can share some photos so I can understand the process a bit easier? (I'm still a bit of a noob at this sorry) Also for the codec commander file there are 2 codec kexts, one in a 'release' folder and the other in a 'debug' folder. Do I use the kext from the release?

Upload a copy of your current config.plist. For the codec commander kext you want to use the release version.

OK I changed post #443 to show the Properties key too. See screen grab for where to enter it in your config.plist.

Try installing the latest Whatevergreen kext to /L/E as well as Lilu if you don't have that. Use kextbeast to install the kexts then run Kext Utility to rebuild caches and repair permissions.


thank you very much, but it doesn't work for me.. :( i have thedame 2 problems, can't shutdown if the wifi usb receiver, and the second monitor doesn't work, if i plug the second, the system doen't start, after the apple screen at 40% the 2 screens remain black. :(

i Downloaded whatevergreen and lilu from the downloads section, then put them on the desktop . download kextbeast and install, i can't choose /library extensions and system L/E at the sale time, i only can check one of them.
then i reboot and use kext utility. I try again rebooting after kext utility..
