DisplayFusion 9.8 might be causing Nvidia Shadowplay to not work properly

I record a lot of game footage, and have done so for many many years. But since mid May i started noticing that my Recordings did not hold a stable 60fps and not stable 50Mbps, which had never happened to me before.
I went through the hoops and uninstalled Geforce Experience and the Nvidia drivers and reinstalled, but nothing helped. So i was sort of in the blank. I thought maybe a windows update had caused this. But anyways, since after i installed DisplayFusion 9.8 my Desktop wallpaper constantly had been bugging out, i thought I'd just uninstall DisplayFusion to see if that might have a hand in the poor Shadowplay performance, and to my surprise, after uninstalling, shadowplay works perfectly again.
Now i have no idea exactly why this is. The only clue i have is that in between May 18th and May 24th, when the problem started occurring, I connected my LG C9 TV to my PC as well, in 4K.
I could of course now try and reinstall an older version of DF, or just reinstall the newest one again, and do some testing. But this is anyways a heads up in case someone else run into these issues.
I run RTX3070 on Core i7-9700K.

Hello,

If you open up the DisplayFusion Advanced settings window, can you disable all 3 hooks (Application, Polling, and Shell) and see if the issue persists after restarting DisplayFusion?

Thanks!

Thanks for your reply
A reinstall of 9.8 seem to have fixed the issue. I decided not to go into any options after reinstall just yet, just to see if it behaves like it did before. And right now I'm capturing at 60fps and the correct bitrate.
But i also do not have the TV connected atm. If i connect the TV again, and this problem reoccurs, i will test those options.
