My Samsung DLP does this as well by default, but there is a menu option on the TV to change the aspect
from 'PC' to 'WideTV 16:9'.  Then, the image fills the screen with a little bit of overscan, which is easy to
compensate for.  So, what aspect options does your TV have?

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.
