I'm no expert on your graphics board, but maybe you have only one video 
overlay? Then the one monitor will show the movie (your LCD) and the other 
one the overlay background, which is usually blue. Try to find a way to 
change it, maybe your driver vendor or your x11 driver has special optinons 
for this situation.

Have fun,
