Song playback status / time doesn't update in roon with HQP4 (3.x works)

I use HQP lic 3.25.4 with roon 783 (OR as endpoint to DAC). Still deciding on whether to upgrade with desktop or embedded 4.xx. Anyway I have trialed 4.xx several times and the timeline stays at 0:00 in roon (currently trialing HQP 4.10.1)? Is this a bug, a trial limitation, anyone else see this?
