How can I turn off AC3 passthrough for Chromecast and force transcoding of AC3 to ACC
I've connected a Chromecast to a TV which is HDMI connected to a Sony AV. When playing files that have AC3 Plex detects the Sony, and that it can decode AC3, then used the direct play to pass the AC3 to the Chromecast which passes the AC3 stream to the Sony.
While this is great for sound quality, I actually don't like this as I can't use my phone to control the volume and I have to have the Sony remote next to me as well.
I first tried unchecking the "Direct Play" and "Allow Direct Play fo AC3 Audio" controls in the Media Server setting for Web / Player. This have an effect and I suspected this is only used by the web browser interface.
As a long shot I edited the Chromecast.xml in Resource/Profile to change to but this did not work either.
Any suggestions short of removing the HDMI connection from the TV to the Sony
