Can't change bitrate in advanced encoder settings while using AVC encoder!

Hi there guys,
Today, I bought myself some new upgrades for my pc (sweet!), but when I try to change the bitrate, I just can't seem to make it switch. The only two options that it lets me do, is either 1 or 0. I can't really figure out why does this problem occurs, but I hope that I'm not the only one having this problem! Does someone face this issue too? I saw someone post already once on this topic but I guess that no one paid attention to it. I really don't want to switch to StreamLabs OBS and just want to stick with the old guns, which is OBS!
Thanks in advance guys! :)

I believe you are

If it worked before the upgrades, you should know where to start troubleshooting.... Weirdness from your log

Okay... Now what? I'm not a professional what so ever in reading the logs. What seems to be the problem? What could be a potential fix?

Solution found! I just reverted back to a driver before this version that is new and it worked like a charm! I guess that AMD bugged it out in this new update. Thanks for your help btw. :)
Appreciate the help!

Someone help? :(
I was just googling this and this issue popped up for me when I went to randomly check my bitrate. I also run AMD too. On Output > Output Mode "Advanced" > View Mode > "Advanced", if I change my Video Adapter from my GPU to CPU then back to my GPU, I'm able to change it from 1 to any number. If I close OBS and reopen it, it's back at Target Bitrate = 1. I'd personally hate to downgrade back to 20.9.1 and I'm not sure if this value is an accurate representation in OBS nor am I certain when this change occurred.

Opening OBS today: https://obsproject.com/logs/zO-A8Wf78IGPGNg-
 
Sounds like you have 2 options, stick with the optional driver that AMD clearly screwed up or roll back to a driver that works.

Rolled back even further. Seems to have fixed the issue. Before I rolled back, I was getting skipped frames like crazy. Thanks.
