Using PS3, when you will playback a Blu-Ray disk, as we know it can output YCbCr or RGB-Limited, it's up to user to select each one output using PS3 options.
With RGB-Limited it will clip Above Reference White (236-254) and below Reference Black (1-15), so you will not able to see any contrast flashing bar above 235 by reducing your display Contrast slider. (and below 16 in Brightness Pattern)
Only by using a combination of YCbCr output with Super White On, it will display Above Reference White Flashing Bars when you will look a Contrast Pattern, and not clip below 16.
Each selection of between these 2 output options, it will impact the output of your player, there measurable differences if you take measurements with x-Point Grayscale/Saturation/Luminance/ColorChecker pattern etc. means that its not having a 'transparent' video signal output, some processing will affect the output picture.
So calibrate using YCbCr output, for not clipping your 'headroom'.
You can see why you need to leave 'headroom' there
, with some picture examples of 'out of video legal range values' using 'Mission Impossible - Fallout (Blu-Ray)' movie as example there
