No audio output devices found macOS High Sierra

Post by Fractor »

Hi,

I am trying to configure my guest OS so that it has an audio output device available, but no luck so far.

The guest OS is macOS 10.13 High Sierra (64-bit). The host OS is macOS 10.15 Catalina (64-bit).

I have tried most if not all permutations of Settings > Audio without success. I've also looked around the forum and on the web but nothing jumped out at me.

I've attached the log file.

Thank you,
Al.

Sorry, I have only a 'me too' experience to offer. :-(

As you can tell from a forum browse / search, there are already several discussions of a lack of audio in High Sierra & later guest VMs, including a few approved threads (where people are using Apple hardware) and many more unapproved threads (the locked ones where people are using 'other' hardware).

Approved threads include: Perhaps a workaround or solution will turn up eventually in one of them.

Indeed, there's already a glimmer of hope in the somewhat related thread 'Facetime cannot log in account', where the OP indicates that they got audio(-in?) to work in a Catalina guest, within a Linux host on an iMac, via a "passed" webcam (presumably a captured USB device). So, it seems that at least some USB-attached audio devices would work in High Sierra & later guest VMs.
