Basic calibration such as brightness, contrast, color, and tint will work fine. I am not sure how well sharpness will work with the upscaling / up-converting artifacts you will see when going from from DVD / SD to Blu-ray / HD.
You will also get scaling and errors on many of the test patterns. The patterns will indicate you are scaling or up converting and show a fault. This is true and the disc is working as designed. However, you will get scaling / up-conversion errors what you up-covert from DVD / SD to Blu-ray / HD.
Make sure you calibrate your DVD and BD Players as well. Look online for the best way to do that.
Here is a link for the PS3 calibration settings.
Hope that helps.

1) HTPC - DVI > HDMI
2) Xbox 360 - HDMI
3) PS3 - HDMI
The reason I chose the DVD format over Bluray is simply because out of all of my HD sources, the only one that is Bluray capable is the PS3, the other two are only DVD capable.
I do own DVE HD Basics in Bluray; it feels dated so I wanted to try something more current such as WOW.
What are the major differences between the Disney WOW DVD vs Bluray contents and their compatibilities for calibrating HD sources with HDTV, when using either DVD, Bluray format types?
Is the WOW DVD format strictly for non-HDTV's and SD sources?
What should I expect to miss out on when I receive the WOW discs in DVD compared to buying the Bluray version?
Any help is greatly appreciated.
