Default Does the internal mic work on Mini 9 and OSX? - 08-12-2009, 05:38 PM

As the title states.
Been hunting and searching around. Seems like it might work?
Also assuming that the 1.3 webcam works too?

In the ordering process and wanted to see if photobooth etc... will work as expected.

Thanks all.

Works for me, and I believe mine has the 1.3mp camera and it works great.

The only thing is phootbooth is taller then the 1024x600 resolution and it cuts off the photos, you can always just view them in the finder though.

What OS version are you running? 10.5.8?
What install method?
Any aftermarket kexts?

I want to ensure I get all of this working as well.

Anyone else have reports of it working fine as well.
Sounds like this really is a fully function hardware match.

I installed using the "Runcore HardDrive with a Mac" method and using DellEFI 1.1 and EVERYTHING and i mean absolutely EVERYTHING works great!

As someone mentioned, because of the mini's screen resolution the bottom of Photobooth App (and a couple of other apps) are cut off. HOWEVER if you search these forums you will find that some wonderful people have created small little apps/widgets that by simply clicking once will launch the next app you run at 75% resolution, thereby allowing the whole window to fit on the screen.

(P.S. When I say everything works I forget to mention that two fingered scroll on the track pad is absent. But clicking and dragging is all fine and dandy)

Unhappy microphone not working for me - 09-24-2009, 09:08 PM

I got DellEFI 1.1 and BIOS A04

My camera works (1,3MP) but the built in microphone doesn't work at all. Even though it shows on the Preferences panel.

I've searched through the forums and googled. Some say the microphone has been disabled for compatibility issues, and some say their microphones work.

It would be nice to get some clarity on this. So I can confirm wether my internal microphone on my Mini is broken or not.

For me the sound works and the output jack works too.
But the internal microphone does not. It is displayed in the Preferences panel but no audio is being captured if I try to use it with Skype or Audacity

Tried this with my 3 computers and with I-Chat and Skype. Neither the internal mic nor an external mic worked. Skype actually shut down each time I tried to make a connection.

Also checked the Sound section in Settings, and no Input device is available. Hopefully mic support is addressed in an update. Overall, I'm very pleased with what's already working!
