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.
I updated to the 16.1 drivers (the Legacy version since it's a non-GCN card) and still no DVXA! I'm upset. This was the whole reason I got this card.
I'm really tempted to nuke Windows 10 and switch to Linux where I know VDPAU/libva will work!
