I upgraded to a new video card the other day, a nVidia gt1030 fanless 
(replacing a gt730 fanless).
I bought the MSI version of this card with Display Port and HDMI, but I'm 
using HDMI.
I upgraded in preparation for purchasing a new TV, where even lower-end Aldi 
models are all 4k.

With the latest nVidia driver, everything is mostly working.
However on some HEVC/x265 videos that *used* to play with the old card and 
driver, now mythfrontend (0.28)
pauses for a couple of seconds, then drops back with an error message 
"Unable to Initialise A/V sync".

This is (I think) a problem because the nVidia VDPAU doesn't work with this 
type of video encoding on this model card.

Is there a way I can configure mythfrontend to fallback to software decoding 
or suchlike?

Is Myth 0.29 (with updated ffmpeg) going to help solve this?  I read the 
change-log, but it didn't cover this topic.
