Hello Tonydlo, I’m sorry for the inconvenience you have faced with the NUC.
I’m going to report this immediately to the engineers. Thanks a lot for letting us know.
Question? Have you tried installing BIOS version 0035? It is the latest BIOS available for this product https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?DwnldID=24673
I ran the dxdiag for the new and old driver. Attached is the winmerge diff report.
There looks to be no significant difference between the two logs, just driver version number, size, etc.
Thanks for continuing to look into this. I have reverted to the older driver so at least all 3D files work again on PowerDVD.

Some good news!
I just wanted to let you know the latest graphics driver just released (3/16/2015 v188.8.131.5256) has fixed some issues.
- PowerDVD 14 hardware-accelerated playback works again.
- I used to have a glitch when exiting PowerDVD where it would change the resolution from 1920x1080 to the next lower setting. This no longer happens.
- On a different note (maybe I should make a new post about this), the latest driver properly does an HDMI audio reset every time I switch my audio receiver on or off. This means that when it is off (pass through to my projector), it correctly identifies basic audio capability, and when I turn it on, it correctly resets the audio and identifies all the Dolby/DTS features of my receiver! I think this is an issue many people have hit before.
I am especially impressed about #3.
Having said all the good news, I still have one issue:
Playing back 3D side-by-side video files through PowerDVD has some stuttering that I believe is directly related to the refresh rate. PowerDVD changes my projector to 1080P 24FPS 3D mode, which I believe is correct as it does that for all 3D content. It also sets the video driver to 23p refresh rate. I'm not sure what's happening, but every 30-45 seconds it stutters back a couple frames. This make the video viewing almost unbearable. I tried changing the video driver to 24p to see if it made any difference and it didn't. Since it happens with any 3D video file I have, I'm guessing there is some sort of refresh rate that is not in sync between the projector and the video driver. I'm not sure what else to try here.
Looks like things are improving though.
