Ive searched and can't seem to find a direct solution to alc295 headphone jack. when I plug headphones in, sound still comes from speakers, and then after about 30-45 seconds, sound comes through headphone port but its really distorted. any help would be greatly appreciated

@Mrgeque,

It's most likely to do with your audio pin config ... however Audio HDA patching is not my area of expertise, best advice i can give you is to post the issue on the official AppleALC support thread (i'm assuming your using Lilu + AppleALC ?)


I had a similar issue with the headphone/mic combo jack on my HP spectre X360 some time ago and one of the Audio gurus there helped me get it sorted.

Cheers
Jay

thanks again @jaymonkey. just out of curiosity, what codec do you use, and what are you currently using to make it work. I'm going to head to the alc thread now

@Mrgeque,

My HP Spectre X360 laptop has a ALC295 Codec ... am using AppleALC with Layout 3 .... headphones work great when plugged in and speakers shut off, the only issue is the external mic does not work but its a common issue with combo jacks (3.5mm 4 pin).

But as i said some laptop have a different pin config, you'll probably need to do a codec dump in linux, then copy the pin config from the codec dump into pin configurator, fix the errors (pin configurator has a button for that) and the substitute your custom pin config to the one in the layout your using.

If you want to have a go yourself i used this guide :-


it's in german but if you use chrome browser does a decent enough translation, you just need to do the codec dump as detailed in Step 1 and then do Step 3 for the pin config, you then take the exported pin config data from pin configurator and replace the pin config data in the info.plist inside AppleALC for the codec/layout your using.

It sounds complicated but its actually pretty straight forward once you've done it a few times.

Cheers
Jay
