Do you calibrate projectors with a PC and colorimeter? Downsides?

I've tried using my PC as a source and i never feel like i'm getting the right fidelity, so i switched back to standalone bluray players and chromecast. I feel like my OS is fooling around with the signal too much. Yesterday i got a colorimeter (Colormunki Display) for my gaming monitor and i found out i could use it with my projector also, but i'm skeptical of this being better than standalone + eye calibration. Help clear up any misconceptions I may be having about this. Thanks.

Ideally, you'd use that meter along with third-party calibration software for best results. The X-Rite icc profiles won't help much if your PC's player software doesn't use them. They are also limited to correcting grayscale and gamma, doing absolutely zip for color fidelity.
