MX613ST Color space conversion issue (detects YUV instead of RGB)

OS: All
Scope of issue: All BENQ MX613ST (Firmware 1.02) projectors

Issue:
When using ChromeCast on the BENQ MX613ST projector, the projector seems to incorrectly detect the source color space.  "Color space conversion" is set to auto on the projector (detects between YUV and RGB source) yet it always considers ChromeCast a YUV source and the colors are projected incorrectly.  Default of projector is permanently on "auto", no way to force it to stick with RGB setting (sloppy BENQ arghhh).

Can the ChromeCast be updated to support/fix this issue?  Our school has 50+ of these projectors and we would love to implement chromecasts across all of them!  Right now, every time the projector is turned on, the color space must be fixed in order to use it and once you multiply that across 50 projects 

Much appreciate any input/help!

UPDATE: BENQ has been contacted and I have provided more data on the issue to them.  Perhaps they can solve this with a firmware update for the projector.  Will update when I have more information.

There are no options to adjust for an error on the other end of the HDMI connection.

Joe Ellett: That is correct and hence why I am pursuing BENQ for more answers.

I just thought that if other displays had the same issue, ChromeCast team could consider a setting option for changing the color space output.  If it's a very specific issue (as it seems as there are few responses) then this can be ignored and then archived.

I will update with BENQ's response so that anyone with similar issues can easily find it via google or searching the forums?
