My post before regarding RGB:
When under XMB or anything besides Blu-Ray, DVD, or any video disc based:
RGB Limited (PS3) RGB Limited (TV): Levels are 0-255 remapped from 16-235
RGB Full (PS3) RGB Limited (TV): Levels are 16-235 from a 0-255 remapped from a 16-235
RGB Full (PS3) RGB Full (TV) Levels are 0-255 untouched
When using Blu-Ray, DVD, or and video disc based:
YCbCr Super-White Off: 16-235
YCbCr Super-White On: 16-255
^^ Don't have enough information about YCbCr but through experiments and grayscale patterns
that's what I've come up with.
PS3 will not remap a Blu-Ray/DVD to 0-255 unless you set it to RGB
(PS3 will remap it to 0-255 if set to RGB Full on a TV with 0-255)
PS3 always remap game from 0-255 to 16-235 level on a 16-235 TV.
PS3 will not remap game if set to RGB Full and TV has 0-255.
PS3 outputs 0-255 on RGB Full. PS3 outputs 16-235 on RGB Limited. XMB, Games are 0-255 levels, DVD, Blu-Ray are 16-235 levels
So to clarify, RGB is set to Full which affects games and the XMB. When
playing a movie or something video based material, it's automatically at
YCbCr which the TV does automatically sets it to 16-235 level unless you
put the Super White On which in this case the 235 is being remapped as
255 as it's peak white. There is no conversion when the TV is Full and PS3
is set to Full also.
