It's a Samsung PN50B550 from 2009. I used calibration settings I found on the internet. The camera is a Canon Powershot SD1400IS Digital Elph.

It's also a downloaded Blu ray I downloaded to a Western Digital 2tb Elements hard drive. I use a WDTV Live for play back hooked up to the tv via HDMI. I have 400 plus Blu Ray titles I downloaded to 2, 2 TB hard drives. I got tired of buying Blu rays at 15-25$ a pop.

It's always nice to admit that you steal in an open forum.

Those movies are compressed to at least half the original size as well. I wouldn't call them bluray anymore either.

And for HI, yes I'm aware that different codecs have more efficient compression, but even my 9 year old can tell the difference between the original bluray and the ones I've reencoded to about 9-12GB to stream to my XBox360 WMC Extenders when they're played on our 60ST30.

Looky here!

Not always the case. He/she might live in a place where bluray is not available to buy like the case with me here in Pakistan..not a lot of choice when it comes to buying bluray content. Same reason I get all my other stuff off torrents, not gonna wait a 100 years for it to become available in my region. Life's short.

I download a lot of Remux, or uncompressed Blu ray files. I can honestly not tell a difference. These files are 20-30GBs.

However you choose to rationalize what you're doing, it's still stealing.
