The setting is not hard to find. In CCC just check the no scaling option.
Obviously, I don't share your opinion of this matter. Personally, when I first bought an HDTV, I noticed the black borders, and looked all over the CCC, and failed to find it. Part of the problem, was that I wasn't even sure what to look for, or if the problem was a setting in CCC. I had to do a google search, and comb forums to find the answer. Do a google search for "black borders TV ATI" and you'll see there are a lot of others that asked the same question. Worse, there are a lot of people that give the wrong answers leading these poor schmucks on a wild goose chase of troubleshooting.
