    I'm confused regarding the capability of Plex on the PS4 to output HD Audio. I've seen it said on some forums that whilst the PS4 will output HD audio for physical discs Sony do not allow Plex access to the necessary code to allow HD audio to be streamed. I know it can't bitstream but can it output a lossless LPCM stream or is it downmixing to a lower quality?

    Thanks!

    I’m also interested in this. When I play DTS source content via my PS4 plex app, my receiver now shows as DTS.

    Before it said Linera PCM 3/2.1.........
