. Feel free to use your BD player on each input to perform a basic calibration.

Unfortunately, it is the tv programming that can vary, since they don't always adhere closely to the SEMPTE standard, which the calibration disc surely does. But you cannot recalibrate your system for each tv broadcast, so you calibrate your system to the industry standard, and leave it at that.
