    DVXA on R5 230 stopped working after Windows 10 update

      I have an XFX R5 230 (PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_6779&SUBSYS_52301682) and I am running Windows 10 Pro x64.  I have AMD Crimson 15.11.1 drivers installed (from amd.com, not Windows Update).

       

      I just updated Windows 10 to the new 1511 (10586) build.  I regret doing this as it's just caused countless issues.  One of them being that suddenly DXVA stopped working!

       

      I use MPC-HC to play videos and DXVA used to work flawlessly before I updated Windows.  Now it and even DXVA checker claim that DXVA2/DXVA-HD doesn't work on my card.  What's going on?


      I use the Crimson 15.11.1 drivers from amd.com.  I do not use the driver from Windows Update (this driver killed the DXVA that used to work on my integrated Radeon HD 4200, I don't trust Windows' drivers).  I'd love to use the new Crimson 16.1 driver, but it won't install for my card.  It's missing PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_6779&SUBSYS_52301682 from its inf.

       

      Anyway, how can I get DVXA working on my card?  Which driver do I need to install?  Are there any additional driver components I need?  This used to work this morning!  It stopped when I updated Windows.  I'm really upset, because I bought the R5 230 *specifically* for the Crimson drivers (my integrated HD 4200 doesn't support them).  I really want to be able to use the features I've paid for.

       

      P.S. After updating Windows, I used the AMD cleanup utility and DDU to remove *everything* and then installed 15.11.1 cleanly.
