I think I didn't explain one of my questions properly:Volume control problem on your system?
Bad idea. Repurposes Blue to Black and Pink to Orange and disables Black and Orange.
Layouts 2 and 3 apply to motherboards with 3 analog audio ports only.
7 is not my work, does not support Orange or Black (2 out supported, not 4)
No, AppleALC configures AppleHDA for the installed non native Intel High Definition Audio codec during boot. It has nothing to do with making sound, improving sound or controlling sound; native AppleHDA does that.
A volume control problem is an AppleHDA problem not an AppleALC or layout problem.
The AppleALC developer added alc-layout-id for backward compatibility with deleted layouts, invisible to users.
If Apple eliminates a layout, let's call it #1 for argument's sake. Does that mean I can no longer use layout 1 in AppleALC? Or one has nothing to do with the other?
In other news:
I switched back to 1. One of the guys I was helping said the volume control was very bad, would jump up to almost full volume but works fine on my identical system.
So is 1 the correct layout to use for my config?
