Let's clarify here...

(1) You have fed HDMI audio+video output from two different PC's into the HDMI input of the 103? That's the basic experiment?

M-cards are the wrong kind for use in a TV. S-cards are the proper type for the single-tuner 960.

And of course as a result you won't have "on-demand" capability, as that requires an M-card and a...

I had mine done by D-Nice back in May 2013. Very satisfied, although I haven't used my now-calibrated 960 virtually at all since January 2013 when I bought a Panny 65VT50 (also calibrated by D-Nice...
