|> We would need to gather information about the codecs and exact hardware identifier. As mentionned above, HDA is only part of the work here, it gets the audio out of the main chipset in digital format (on a bus called I2S). This is not enough, there is another step needed which is routing that I2S signal to the output, converting it to actual audio, amplifying it, etc.
|I've added my laptop to the bug list which is the HP Pavilion DV8000 using ICH7-based southbridge. The CODEC used are from Conexant / Realtek HD Codec supporting: ALC880, ALC882, ALC883, ALC885, ALC888, ALC861, ALC861VD, ALC660, ALC260, ALC262, ALC268.
