nvidia: blank screen when "Adjust display refresh rate" is enabled

Since the last major vpupdate in test build #0710, playback of video results in a blank (black) screen when "Adjust display refresh rate" is enabled. Seems to affect older Nvidia GPUs using the 340.102 driver. This driver and "adjust refresh rate" worked fine prior the PR12212 update. Disabling adjust refresh rate restores video playback, although now with obvious judder.

Tested using latest Kodi master (84cd8cdf).

Agree with Milhouse, did some tests today with LibreELEC.tv Leia build #0723 generic and Kodi 2:18.0+git20170724.0200-51a70ff. Since the PR12212 I get a black screen on Nvidia systems when Adjust display refresh rate is On ,start/stop or always, no sound issues here. I also did some tests with different Nvidia drivers on my Ubuntu system, the by fernetmenta recommended 340.x, the 367.x and 375.x same result, seems not to be a driver issue. Find attached 2 verbose debug logs and the forum post:
