I haven't been looking out for it with this device, but if you want to see it, in general, with TVs monitors, etc, everytime you look at a dark scene in a movie, look at the faces of the people or the shadow areas. If you see the eyes and cheekbone, but then the cheek (ie shadow area) is just a black area, then it is probably black crush.
16 is considered black for video and they have "below" black levels 0-15. When it gets mapped incorrectly to RGB, 16 is mapped to 0 so you don't have the ability to see the "below" black levels anymore (ie they are crushed) as in RGB, there is nothing below 0.
You won't see it that well with bright scense, sports, etc.
