.bastian is on a distinguished road

For a mixing plane in my actual casre, I would like to set each averaging scheme separately.
So I commented out the default option and try to set each point separately.
However, I have problems setting the scheme for rho*U.

Starting from the error message:
Cannot find mixing type for field (rho*U)
Please specify in fvSchemes in mixingPlane, under field name
Available types are
Accordingly in fvSchemes i've tried the following notations specifying the field rhoU, but nothing of these worked:
rho*U              fluxAveraging;
rhoU               fluxAveraging;
(rho,U)            fluxAveraging;
field(rho*U)       fluxAveraging;
field(rhoU)        fluxAveraging;
field(rho,U)       fluxAveraging;
For other Values it looks like:
    //default  unknown;
    p         areaAveraging;
    U         fluxAveraging;
    rho       fluxAveraging;
    T        fluxAveraging;
    k        fluxAveraging;
    episilon fluxAveraging;
Has anyone an idea how to specify the field rho*U in this context?
