DSR/Super Resolution on eGPU?

Hello.  I have have not been able to enable Nvidia DSR over a 970 nor a 1060, nor Super Resolution over AMD rx480 and rx580, despite using the latest drivers.  I can only use those functions on desktop so far.  Connections used  : Pe4c, Beast v.8, aorus box Tb1. 

Am I missing something? Do these sharp upscaling functions inherently not work over eGPU?

I've enabled this in the AMD control panel or whatever it's called. It seems to work for my Rx 560 on the external display directly attached to the card. If there's a problem I think it would probably be with the display or how it's connected or something.
