MPEG2 file: mcplug2 or mxhevcplug

My MPEG2 files in Vegas are opened by either one or the other plugin.
I noticed that those with "Audio: MPEG Layer 2" are opened by mcplug2 and those with "Audio: AC3" are opened by mxhevcplug.

Is it possible to make them all open with mxhevcplug? The reason is simple -- when opened with mcplug2, I can't change the color range (no matter what I set, the range is always Limited).

In the options under "File I/O" I have both "Legacy" options selected.

I also wish that Vegas would allow users to specify different decoders for video stream and audio stream of a video file.

for example, specify "so4compoundplug.dll" for its video stream but "compoundplug.dll" for its audio stream.

This can make full use of the advantages of Vegas' existing decoder.
