Pi B+ and HiFiBerry DAC+ = Stuttering video

Crossposted from the OSMC forums

I recently noticed that video playback from tvheadend (4.0.7) was uneven, jerky. Noticeable when the camera was panning. Anyway, I did try all the suggestions I could find, ie the "adjust refresh display" and "sync playback to display", with limited success. It was either good audio and choppy display or smooth display with audio dropouts. Watching a programme and hitting "o" showed skipped frames

Stumbles across a post that suggested removing dtoverlay from config.txt, which I did (dtoverlay=hifiberry-dacplus-overlay) and lo and behold, smooth audio and video, but no output from the DAC card. So, is there any way to have both? Ie smooth video and the HiFiBerry card active?

Thought I'd ask here as well.
