I use two video cards - riva128zx, connected to the monitor, another one - 
mach64 - to the TV and then use something like -display :1 -fs -zoom to put 
the movie onto the other screen(with mplayer, not sure how would the gui 
work). It doesn't appear to work with all the drivers(worked with -vo xvidix, 
-vo x11, -vo gl2 for me, probably will work with -vo xv), which makes sense 
for different cards especially. Anyways, I think it should work just fine 
with nvidia cards and -vo xv.
