HI all

so i'm basically very anal about watching movies lately and only want to watch them on bluray.. Now i do have a HUGE library on my PC ( I use PLEX media server as i think it is incredible) and some of my PLEX movies are .MKV which is very sharp looking.. BUT,

If I am going to build a dedicated HT, and watch some 3D content is it the same exact image in your opinion, whether i am watching on a bluray player with the disc, or streaming it to my Projector through a PC or sorts? Thanks a lot

i am willing to convert every bluray i own to .mkv if the quality would be the same...

As long as you don't compress your Blu-Rays, your MKVs will be identical. I prefer MakeMKV for my Blu-Ray rips.

I also use PLEX Media server, for my Dune HDTV 303D Media player. Works wonders.

If you want the best quality on your HTPC you can use powerdvd for your 3d files, and use mpc-hc with madvr for your mkv files that quality will be amazing.
