    My High Sierra installation gave me considerable troubles, but I got through it and I seem to have everything working including audio (using toleda's solution). However, one difference is that the "AFGLowPowerState" tag doesn't seem to do anything anymore, so after no audio activity for maybe 30 seconds (sometimes less) the light for my optical port will turn off and, due to it being used as a clock for another device, can cause some frustrating disruptions that I didn't have to deal with in Sierra. Are there any other solutions for this problem?
