Clarification Request
What exactly are you trying to do with the devices?

Be more specific on whether you are trying to export content from the DVR to your PC, or recording television programming from your DISH box on your PC, etc.

" only, duplicate, extend and projector only"

Those settings are for display output from your PC.

What is the make/model of your PC? I agree with Oldartq, the HDMI on PCs is usually an output for a display device, not an input for a receiver.
