4K on Apple TV 5. Gen

Hi,
I can not play my 4K movies directly, my plex server always uses transcoding. Is an update planned for that? The tvOS.xml fix does not work, it uses the transcoded instead of playing the movies directly...

    Unfortunately I only found a "solution" with the modification of the tvOS.xml file. That solution does not suitable for me because the plex transcoder is still active and consumes about 90% of my available CPU ressources I only get a 1080p resolution.
    Some users report that direct play was working after they made these changes.
