Issues playing 5.1 videos on Sony devices.

Hi, I am having troubles playing any files through Playstation, and other Sony app's. It appears to be an issue with 5.1 files.

They used to work, but since there has been updates (i.e - when they made the app free), it doesn't work..

Any ideas how to resolve this issue without re-encoding all my files?

    Or is the issue linked with the files being in MKV format?

    I, too, and many others, seem to have issues playing some 5.1 formats on the PlayStation 4 through Plex.
