PCM vs. DSD on Select II

Check this out on SII:

Roon set to Native, Fixed Vol. Control, DSD Max Sample Rate 512.
Select II set to Native

Now try and mute a DSD track...you can't ! You can mute PCM tracks. If u turn on DSP Volume in Roon u can mute all resolutions with DAC set to Native. Not sure what is going on but it's awful inconvenient

You can mute any resolution track if Select II is set to Optimized with Roon set to Fixed Volume.....

Its either something in the MSB firmware or a problem with the MSB/Roon S II settings but turning on DSP Volume doesn't appeal to me....

MSB in Native sounds more life like to me.
