    Firstly, thanks for the great project! I have tried AppleALC, toledo and hacks from others around the internet and only just have sound with voodooHDA. Tried various Realtek ALC codecs and this sound cards is extremely problematic. For now I have a problem really, really estrange. The board is GYGABYTE SNIPER B6 with ALC 1150. Some times sound work fine and some times no hardware detected. Randomly. If I restart system 10 times, 3 or 4 times it will work, randomly.The question: why? Some ideia? My specs: GYGABYTE SNIPER B6 - fully working OS X Sierra 10.12 - fully working Tried: TOLEDA - not working AppleALC - not working Thanks in advance.

    Great project!! Really useful enabling the audio ports available on my machine. Please help with one gotcha.. A lot of software assumes each audio device is uniquely named, however HDMI shows up 8x in my machine. Could the driver enumerate them with device and port? Ex... (missing the "Digital-out" part of the name) HDMI11, HDMI12, HDMI13, HDMI14 - for first device HDMI21, HDMI22, HDMI23, HDMI24 - for second device

    My compliments to the team VoodooHDA, even if he wanted to tell with: - Support for "CA20K1". - Will add a somewhat "AntiPop". No more to say, thank you for your work from Venezuela, excuse me for my bad english.
