Hi Janet
I am also using a Cinetal Cinemage 10bit. I have it set up to rec 709 gamut controlled which works for me, the bulk of the work I do is broadcast and commercials. Don't know for sure but I would be surprised if domestic TVs could display full gamut, as the legalisation process is designed to bring everything within gamut for broadcast.Simon
