I just tested it on Windows 7 and -xineramascreen 0/1 works just fine for choosing the display.
In addition, -geometry works just fine also with -vo direct3d and -vo directx (though the latter needs -adapter 2 or similar as always). Shouldn't matter, but this is an AMD card running 13.1 drivers.
Lastly, your issue actually proves that the monitor handling code works fine, MPlayer detects it is running on a different screen and changes the -geometry handling to be relative to that.

You don't need eq, you just need a to choose a mode that supports it, e.g. -vo gl:yuv=3.
However there was a bug that unless you set gamma separately for each of red, green and blue it would set it only for red.
That is fixed in r35924.
