Question Black Border from Shield

I have just purchased a new 49" Samsung 4k TV and have noticed that when i connect my Shield to it there is a black border all the way round the edges. I would say its about 1/2" to 1" away from filling the screen all the way round.
I have tried changing the resolution settings in the shield and its set to 4K (recommended) and the only one that makes it fit is if i select the 1080p resolution.

This is where it goes weird. IF i go into my TV Settings and turn OFF Screen fit it then fills the whole screen, but if i turn ON screen fit it goes to having a border again, this is the opposite of what i would expect the Screen fit setting to do on my tv ??

Anyone any ideas on what i might be doing wrong?
 
"fit to screen" should be the correct setting as you said yourself to stop black boarders. I can think of one thing you can try. First turn on "fit to screen" and let them boarders re appear, then go to the I assume Nvidia shield your on about settings and see if it has a setting that is incorrect that will make the boarders go away.

I have had this issue with PC's and it was always the PC Nvidia settings scaling incorrect etc.
