What make/model of CRT are you trying to use?

If you’re using a 4:3 VGA CRT, it doesn’t seem unreasonable that you wouldn’t be able to stretch the image horizontally enough to fill the width of the screen, because such a monitor wouldn’t have been designed to accommodate that sort of content. I would either disable widescreen modes on the Xbox to use the display’s intended image format, or I’d use an additional video processor between the OSSC and the CRT that can perform the horizontal stretching so the monitor receives the image in the proper aspect ratio (and then you’ll need to deal with letterboxing).

If, however, you’re using a 16:9 or 16:10 CRT, and it doesn’t have any aspect ratio controls like you said (adjusting horizontal size does not count), then you’ll need an additional video processor to perform the horizontal stretching so the monitor receives the image in the proper aspect ratio. You may also wish to consider using a Framemeister, which would be able to correctly stretch an anamorphic widescreen image.
