Unable to play sample rate of more than 96khz from Tidal MQA

Please help - I am streaming MQA files from tidal which are higher than 96khz but I am only able to get 96khz output. My DAC is a Khadas tone board which I am almost sure has been capable to do this before. See below the data from my configuration. When I play files that are in my hard drive, I am able to get the higher sample rates.

Thank you in advance as always.

Khadas Tone Board, that I have too, is not Mqa compliant therefore Audirvana will perform the first unfolding, that’s why you get 24/96.
To perform full unfolding an MQA compliant dac is needed.

Thank you as always sir!
