2 options here:

This example highlights the problem.
If you were to use the PS3 to calibrate for other sources, then that dip in red and rise in blue at the 30% point would wreck the grayscale.
Likewise, if you used another source device to calibrate the PS3's input, the result would also be incorrect. Neither option is suitable.
In this example, only the PS3 can be used to calibrate its own input and isn't suitable to calibrating any other source unless it too behaves the same way at that point in the white balance.
This may not be the behaviour of every PS3 out there. It certainly is with my 40Gb and my Panasonic plasma. YMMV.
The WDTV Live is just a fast booting playback device that is capable of dishing-out 1080p in all the refresh rates that you would want in a nice small package. Its a piece of crap imho, but there really isn't much available at that price-point sadly.
