Now the Broadcom Bluetooth modem is showing up. Have you enabled Handoff from System Preferences --> General?

On a side note can you (or anyone) recommend a microphone that would plug into the front of a Focusrite 2i2 (2nd Gen)? Three conditions/considerations:
  • It's for voice/narration in an indoor setting.
  • It's for internal training videos, not elaborate productions.
  • Preferably under $150.

No video, just audio?

Audio Technica AT2020 is OK, though for an untrained (=soft) speaker with a 2i2 it may be a bit too quiet...
Don't forget to get a (table) stand and a popscreen.

A lavalier mic is handy if there's also a video. Small, unobtrusive and you have a bit more freedom to move.

Okay, @dgsga here's my SystemDSDT, but I have questions:


First Bullet Point:

You say "Adjust the Root Port number and change the GPCB method changed using the (PCI address * 8)+x formula. My thunderbolt RP05 is at 1C,4 so its (1C * 8)+4 = E4..."

Well, my thunderbolt RP05 is also at 1C,4, but adjust the root port (to E4), how? Is this another rename? I do see the following:

Method (MMBA, 0, NotSerialized)
{
Return (\_SB.PC00.GPCB ())
}

Scope (_GPE)
{
Method (NTFY, 0, Serialized)
{
If (LEqual (NOHP, 0x01))
{
Switch (ToInteger (TBSE))
{
Case (0x01)
{
Notify (\_SB.PC00.RP01, 0x00)
}

and:

Method (GPCB, 0, Serialized)
{
If (LEqual (PC_B, 0x00))
{
Store (MCFG, PC_B)
}

Return (PC_B)
}


Third Bullet Point:

I don't find a GPE._E2C method, but I do find the following:

Method (TINI, 1, Serialized)
{
If (LEqual (Arg0, 0x03))
{
Store (MMRP (), Local0)
OperationRegion (RPTB, SystemMemory, Local0, 0x20)
Field (RPTB, DWordAcc, NoLock, Preserve)
{
Offset (0x18),
PSSB, 32
}

Store (PSSB, Local1)
Store (Add (TRPB, ShiftLeft (BTMP, 0x08)), Local2)
Store (Add (Local2, ShiftLeft (BTMP, 0x10)), PSSB)
Sleep (0x64)
}

And somewhat about that I see this.....

Method (_E4C, 0, Serialized) // _Exx: Edge-Triggered GPE
{
OperationRegion (SPRT, SystemIO, 0xB2, 0x02)
Field (SPRT, ByteAcc, Lock, Preserve)
{
SSMP, 8
}

If (LEqual (CF2T, 0x01))
{
CGST ()
Sleep (0xC8)
}

WKOK ()
WFHR ()
If (LEqual (TNAT, 0x01))
{
Store (MSID (), Local0)
If (LNot (Local0))
{
Return (Zero)
}

If (DMID ())
{
Return (Zero)
}
}


Fourth Bullet Point:

I don't see any RP05._INI, just RP05......

Scope (RP05)
{
Method (_INI, 0, NotSerialized) // _INI: Initialize
{
Store (LTR5, LTRZ)
Store (PML5, LMSL)
Store (PNL5, LNSL)
Store (OBF5, OBFZ)
}


Fifth Bullet Point:

I don't find any _GPE._Exx, there are a lot _GPE. listings, can't post them all......


For bullet points 3,4 and 5 it sounds like they are just ACPI renames, yes? So, in OC, they would be patched under root -> ACPI -> patch? You don't have a sample, do you?

I was using HWMonitorSMC2 v2.4.9, but just upgraded to v2.6.1 from CloverHackyColor (click here). This version is even better. Not only does it display iGPU and AMD GPU statistics, but it also displays comprehensive voltages for Designare Z390:

  • Are you using any non-standard DSDT?
  • Feel free to compress and upload your CLOVER folder, but remove serial numbers from SMBIOS section of config.plist.
  • Also post a screenshot of the /Library/Extensions folder.

I just tried this version, there's no GPU info for me, neither for the iGPU nor for my RX480. Do I need an extra .kext for this?

I don't understand, however, why the Uhd 630 marks 7GB of VRAM!

I was just cleaning up my EFI volume and noticed that I had a copy of "ApfsDriverLoader.efi" in both EFI/CLOVER/DRIVERS/BIOS and EFI/CLOVER/DRIVERS/UEFI. But they are different sizes so that worries me a little. Any way to look at versions on those?

Thanks!
