Default internal mic & screen height - 03-01-2010, 07:38 AM

Well, I got SL installed and updated to 10.6.2 this weekend.

Everything works great except for the internal mic. I cannot get it to work. I have run NBI 0.8.3 again. I have rebooted. I have repaired permissions. I have run the UpdateExtra app. All to no avail. I cannot figure out how to get the internal mic working.

Any help would be much appreciated. Any ideas?

Oh, and one more thing... some of my app windows cannot be fully seen (top to bottom) on the Mini's screen. Is there a way to deal with this? For example, when I installed iWork '09 and then run the apps (Pages, etc) they start up with a welcome screen. At the bottom of that screen is the option to not have the window show upon app start-up. Well, I can't check that box because I can't see it on my screen.

I could be wrong, but I am pretty sure it doesn't work currently without running a modified kext.

Default thanks again - 03-02-2010, 07:29 AM

charley, thanks for the link. I followed it and it helped the issue. Thanks.

underwhelmed, thanks for that link too. I had seen it previously but was hoping not to have to learn how to do all of that stuff (edit code, etc.). Lazy, I know.

But, I did it. I have almost no experience at that type of thing and it went well. All is good now:
Headphones - check
Speakers - check
Internal mic - check

All is good. Thanks again.
