Found another way to have both IGPU + DGPU enabled with Netflix working : rename IGPU to GFX2 . PEGP to GFX0

I have working intel UHD 630 and rx 560 in the same time, preview movies,pictures works with spacebar and force touch.

I can use the new app called screenshot to take pics and record.

The problem is that I can't open pictures downloaded from the web, just preview them with spacebar or force touch, have to use NoVPAJpeg.kext......
This method did not work for me. I already had iGPU enabled so I renamed iGPU to GFX2 and PEGP to GFX0. I removed WhateverGreen kext and also enabled "Inject Intel" and selected the Haswell platform-id.

Without whatevergreen, only using dummy kext for hevc. Check in ioreg if you named correctly.

Could you please share your config file?
Rename IGPU to GFX0 is the same to disable it in the BIOS. The rest of the configurations can be reached using WEG.
I don't know why you need to use IGPU enabled to use Netflix, but it start working thanks to the dummy kext. The only difference between your system and my is the mobo.

Without iGPU, Photos app is crashing. I have even created a new library but no luck. Right now I'm back to my default settings. I have iGPU enabled in BIOS, nothing is selected in Graphics section of config file, and I'm using WhateverGreen. Everything seems to work smoothly for the most part. I do occasionally get system freeze when viewing videos in Safari or apps like WhatsApp.

Safari is using 1080p 8bit for Netflix and Chrome is using 720p... Best luck is with IGPU disabled and only Discrete GPU on.
