RGB. In the PS3, there is also a setting to set RGB levels to Limited or Full.RGB Limited
is for Video
levels (16 to 235). RGB Full
is for PC
levels (0 to 255), which are mapped differently. You crush blacks when you send the wrong levels (0 to 255) to a device that is looking for video levels.
It's technical, but hwjohn
explained it pretty well (red highlight by me)

...Without going into a lot of detail, you want to use limited on both the TV and PS3. All DVD/Blu-Ray will use those levels, and they would have to be re-mapped otherwise...
The Adapter is set up to accept video levels. Most TVs normally accept video levels.
The Mits TV can accept either, because it was designed to also be used as a computer monitor. It is not a fault of the adapter that it uses video levels, it is an extra feature of the TV that it uses both
The only "issue" is caused by a person incorrectly sending PC levels to a device that requires video levels.
So, you could
say that the adapter does indeed crush blacks, but only with the qualifier "when fed the wrong source signal".
