No audio to surrounds (5.1 or 7.1)

Hi, I'm having an issue where even though my source file is encoded in DTS, I do not get any output to the SL, SR, SBL, SBR channels. I only have L,R, & C. The receiver indicates that it is receiving a 7.1 signal.

I've tried every available combination of server, client, PS4, and source audio settings however nothing works.

PS4 is outputting LPCM and the "AC3" box in the Plex app is unchecked. Interestingly when I uncheck the "AC3" box I lose the center channel and only get L/R.

I do not notice this behavior in the Roku Plex app, therefore I do not believe the source file encoding or my receiver config is at fault.

I've attached logs. Could you please help?
