Lightroom 2015.10.1: Slideshow - black bar at top of every image (macOS)

I haven't used the slideshow module for sometime.  Tried it with 15.10.1 and every image has a black bar at the top (see attached).  Doesn't matter if I tick zoom-to-fill or not. I tried clearing preferences and switching GPU on and off to no avail.  However, it doesn't happen if I export to a pdf.  

Any ideas?

Are you playing the slideshow in the module when you see this black bar or is this in the video export?

This is in the module using either play or preview and it doesn't matter what quality I select.

My bet would be on a video driver issue. Any reason you aren't updating to 10.12?

The only other place I have seen any artifacts like this was when using Logitech Wireless Keyboard and Mouse without dated drivers.

Ultra cautious and I haven't needed to.... perhaps its time.

I understand that. If your hardware can handle it... and you backup your stuff....

On the Slideshow note: Does an exported video have any issues? If it and the PDF are fine, I am betting on screen driver...

I started the export video more than 30minutes ago and it seems to be stuck with progress bar not moved since it started....

Will do a super-duper and go for a system update. Fingers crossed.

Completed the update to Sierra and it has indeed fixed the slideshow problem!  I have a bog-standard MBP 13" so I'm guessing others will have the same problem as me.
