Your clutch is dragging slightly. It's probably sticking on the spline slightly when cold. You might find it goes in better if you put it in 1st, keep the clutch down then go into reverse.  There's definitely only 2 cables by the way!

have you had the car from new? If not maybe somebody's replaced the dmf with a solid flywheel

Well I've never done this job but I  would have thought it was a lot of work. For a start you don't have to take the gearbox right out to change the clutch and dmf (just drop the subframe one side). As you say the lever and cables would need to be changed. A new clutch hydraulic line would also be needed. I have no idea if the driveshafts would fit ok Personally I wouldn' tbother. It'd probably end up cheaper to sell the car and buy a six-speed!
