LG V20 and Roon

Hi All -

Using roon remote with my LG V20 as local zone. LG v20 has an ESS 9018 as well as the Snapdragon SOC DAC which can be toggled. Problem is, i cant get roon to engage the sabre dac. Can engage the sabre dac with all other music playback software, not just the stock player.

Engaging rhe sabre dac with the previous lg v10 was a problem outside of the stock dac until lg released an update and then external players could use the dac as well (except roon).

Any possibility of a fix for this, or a workaround?
