    Such a movie should never be considered a viable source to measure a display. Amateur movies often pay a lot more attention to good quality. Same as games. Use them.

    Watching movies from a PC has been the standard way to do it since about 20 years now. It's also viable, especially if you look for quality. Calibrating the screen correctly (white blance, gamma etc.) is also something that has to be done. Most TVs are set up wrong so that the signal is cropped and scaled, introducing more artifacts. Every time I arrive at a hotel and want to watch something, I have to go through the whole programme.

    At home I use a HTPC and a 50" Plasma since 2012 - never had any problems with it.
    Most people don't even know how to get their shiny new 4k TV's to properly display the resolution they are paying for, consdiering how many are shipped with "overscan" being the default mode. I won't even start getting into the "torch" mode that is Dynamic...

    It won't matter.
    The source video and all video, especially movies are mastered and encoded to be viewed in the limited range.
    The only thing you will introduce is noise in the lower and upper range, mostly lower.
    All blueray players and tv signals run in limited signal range for this reason and viewing video on full range setup introduce noise.
    Ah thanks for this. I haven't actually done anything yet. I was going to do more research about the topic and learn how to encode in 10 bits etc etc before I actually re-rip anything.
