Maybe because it's just black "unused" screen?
If you use the 'zoom' function the top and bottom of the picture will be cut off as well. If you use the 'stretch' function, the picture will be distorted.

Is there a strech function? I have not found such a function on my BD-player or HD-TV. I have a "user zoom" that basically does a strech but only in the Y (vertical) direction. I can't change the width of the image with it.

If I could do such a horizontal stretch, I really would use it, even obtaining a distorded image.
If you must fill the whole screen, I recommend getting a media player and ripping the episodes to an HDD. An acceptable, OK-ish solution is to use the players zoom function and then pan down by about 25%. This largely eliminates "cut off head" syndrome and is much better than straight zoom. It's not without its drawbacks though - particularly when an important prop or whatever is on screen towards the lower half of the image.

Really, you should just stick to the OAR.
