Name: IDT High Definition Audio CODEC
Note: Used in hp 8560p Laptop
Codecs are not visible in lspci, so having them in the PCI IDs database makes no sense.
Item shows up in device manager as "unknown device" after a clean Win7 setup, and there is a driver available for it, so it has a place here in my book.
Please see http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/desktop/f/3513/t/19190030.aspx - it *is* a PCI device.
Sure, audio codecs use PCI IDs but in Linux they are not shown in lspci: only the controller chip is shown. In Linux the names of audio codecs are hardcoded in their drivers instead.
Well this is exactly what i use this repository for - to identify those "unknown devices" on new hardware. If that doesn't apply for some OS - fine for them :)
