My Sony does the same thing, from what I've read on the net the TV 
itself is doing it to avoid clipping the edges of the display that might 
have important info/utilities like the taskbar, etc.  I have yet to find 
a way to disable it.  The display looks great, with the lights off I 
can't even tell there is a black border, the TV trim is black and the 
blacks on the display are really dark.
