Did you do the test with the same sort of pattern of boxes that are mapped to 0-16, or 235-255? If you do a simple ramp from 0-255, it's much harder to tell if the set is clipping the blacks or whites. Also, you can't just do the test at one brightness or contrast mode. If your test has boxes in the 0-16 range, you need to increase brightness to see if your TV supports them. If your test has boxes in 235-255, you need to either decrease brightness or contrast to see if your TV supports full mode, and obviously your PS3 has to be in full mode when you do the test.
If you're not going to do the test, I might as well email Mitsubishi and ask them. I just thought Id ask the owners here to test it out properly, since last time I emailed them it took them weeks before I got a response.
Good Grief... you can run either PC level or Video level signals into the set. You adjust the levels according, you can run different color spaces at the source. Just be prepared to not really get what you thnk you are getting. The drivers do weird things. Lots of different registry hacks to get all working right with Radeon. Current Nvidia is pretty straightforward but there cards are just now begining to support bitstreaming of HD audo.
. Do you have any idea how many thousands of us have PCs connected to our TV sets? PCs do different things with different settings on the video card/driver. You would like to send a video level signal because it means that the PC should be relatively close on calibration with your standard consumer electronics devices. To show you how weird it is to get video level output of out a current ATI card and drivers you set the Pixel Format to YCbCr 444 for video with the dynamic range set to 0-255. This produces your normal 16-235 video levels. Yeah you set it to 0-255 to get 16-235.
I have a intel i3 with a Radeon HD5450 set that way and PowerDVD and Media Center with the proper tweak both are using the same levels as my Tivo HD and my Panasonic BD-320. I know I just got done measuring with a real meter.. as usual morphinapg, you are way out there. If you are using an Nvidia Card you will probably select 16-235 if you intend to use the PC an HTPC.. It does not matter anyway because you have full control of brightness and contrast for each input. The TV does not care if you use RGB or YCbCr 444 it does the conversion either way. You may get some slight banding if you do to many conversions. Otherwise it don't matter. Again I have the same brightness and contrast setting for my Tivo HD, Pioneer BD-320 and my HTPC.. in fact they are all going into HDMI 1 through my DVDO Duo.
If you want to know about the different graphics cards, their drives and getting color spaces and levels to match up, go hang out in the Home Theater PC section. PCs can drive you crazy with this stuff... but the folks over there can guide you if you are ever willing to listen anyone.
