Configuration

This is based on the 2012 HP Envy 17.

Video

Works by following http://www.reddit.com/r/linux/comments/1nu4pc/muxless_graphics_cards_on_linux/. I strongly recommend switching to linux-mainline AUR to take advantage of power-management built into 3.12.

Audio

hdajackretast in the package extra/alsa-tools can be used to remap the unconnected 0x10 pin to the subwoofer (Internal Speaker LFE).

SD Card Reader

As of 3.8 a third party module is not needed, device is accessible @ /dev/mmcX

The module for pre 3.8 rts5229 is in the AUR.
