My TV does NOT support Deep Blacks if that's the correct term so I get crushed blacks unless I disable Deep Black on my media player, Bluray player, etc which I can do.
So if I watch a Bluray rip on a media player connected to my TV I do NOT get crushed blacks. However if I watch the same thing but on my PC (DVI to HDMI cable) via a HDMI splitter to my TV then the TV picture has crushed blacks.
Is there anything I can do to disable deep blacks on my PC or in the Media Player Classic Home Cinema software which is what I use to watch videos on my TV via my PC?

Other than that.... "View/Renderer Settings/Output Range" lets to choose the levels in MPC-HC. I think it only applies to the EVR renderer. "16-235" should give you standard "TV Levels", unless the video card is over-riding the output.
Or check the output levels in your video card's control panel. For Nvidia it looks something like this. I think it normally defaults to "use the player settings" but you can choose to have the video card set the levels. TVs normally expect "limited range" levels although some let you choose. My TV has a "HDMI black level" option (it probably goes by different names).
They'd be the standard places to look, but you mentioned using a HDMI splitter. Is that to split the video between the TV and a PC monitor? If so you probably won't be able to have the video display correctly on both the monitor and TV at the same time as PC monitors generally expect "PC" or "full range" levels.
