Section 2.3 missing from readme

Description

The outline of the contents at the beginning of the readme promises, "2.3 Installing HDA Support." This section is conspicuous by its absence.

Without knowing what needs to be done to install HDA support I am unable to get UNIAUD to work with Realtek ALC887 HD Audio.

Thanks for pointing this out. That readme is sooooo old most of it is obsolete. I removed all references to the obsolete sections, including the one you mentioned and also removed much of the other obsolete stuff.

With the current drivers, there is nothing to do but install it.

Well in that case it doesn't work with the onboard HD Audio on the ASUS Z87-K. The motherboard manual describes the onboard audio as, "Realtek ALC887 8 channel High Definition Audio CODEC."

However UNIAUD32 reports, "HDA Intel @ 0Xf4814000 irq 16 Digital Mixer Intel ID 2807." LBMix fails to start with the message, "Unable to inialize API." Unimix PM comes us as a window consisting onlu of a title bar. I am also attaching a PCI scan 20131109-onboard.

For comparison, with the onboard audio disabled and the SBLive5.1 card installed (which works), UNIAUD32 reports, "SB Live! 5.1 [SB0220] (rev10, Serial 0x80651102) at 0xe080, irq 17. Detected Mixer: Sigma Tel STAC9708,11." The corresponding PCI scan is 20131109-sblive.

are you sure you have latest uniaud installed? as it seems you have 2 HDA cards in the system. and with older uniaud this was a problem. what i doubt is that LBMix or uniaudpm still work with newer uniaud32.dll. as api might have changed. but unimix.exe works for sure.
