My guess off the little info here would be that it's an RGB Enhanced/Standard issue, where it's expanding the video range (16-235) to fill the full RGB range (0-255), in which case you will never get BTB and WTW to display correctly, but that's just a total guess right now.

This is the first time i've done any sort of calibration.
Contrast - This pattern is designed for fine-tuning the settings of the brightness and
contrast controls. All of the numbered white bars should be visible and distinct from the
