    I'm having the exact same issue, I've found similar threads for other devices but none that have worked for PS3. Is there any fix yet? I've been using plex for years now and I've only just started having this issue.

    I believe it might be to do with sound setting on the playstation. Try using LPCM 5.1 Ch
