Add some more tension?

Quick question, anyone know of any issues (or Shimano guidance) on using the RX805 with an oval ring? I have it set up on my Hakka with a wolftooth elliptical (42x) and the clutch doesn’t seem to be holding (certainly not as well as I would expect).
I ran the RX800 with Absolute black oval rings for a few thousand kilometres with no issues.

Can you post a photo of your setup? Maybe the chain is too long, but I agree with Nefarious86 - not enough tension (or the clutch is disengaged).

Not sure if it is the derailleur itself or my set up.

I also used absolute black rings... my RX805 would not shift (with the clutch on) down to the high gear.. like 11-12-14... with clutch off I never had an issue. I went 1x and XTR Di recently.. no problem.
