What im doing wrong? Big Grin

DXVA2 is Windows only - are you trying to select it in LibreElec or another Linux build?

Im trying to activate HEVC-hardware-decoding with my GT 1030 in LibreElec. It is not possible?
Sry, first i thought that this topic is about gt 1030 and libreelec.
My old HTPC with i5-3350P cannot play HEVC-4K-Videos smooth enough, thats why i bought the new gt 1030. First, i tested it in Windows - 4k-HEVC-Videos running smooth. Then i wanted to test it in LibreElec, cuz i thought it would work in the same way.

This thread is for all users of the 1030 - not specifically Linux AFAIK.

I may be mistaken but I think there are limitations with the Linux drivers at the moment (possibly 8-bit only HEVC decode not 10-bit?) and you may need to look at a pre-release build with recent nVidia support over in the Linux forum here - millhouse builds them. That said the recently released LibreElec. 8.1.0 beta has updated nVidia drivers in its change log - so that might work.

DXVA2 is a Windows-specific infrastructure - it is specific to the OS and how Windows GPU drivers work. Linux has a different approach and uses VAAPI and VDPAU (and I think VDPAU is still the nVidia route, not VAAPI which is Intel and more recently AMD?) So just as you see VAAPI and VDPAU options in Linux x86/x64 Kodi builds, you see DXVA2 options in Windows builds.
