Your video card's drivers--like all of them I've ever seen--only
supports Xv on one display. The other display shows the Xv color key.
To put the video on the TV (and the color key on your CRT), you need to
rearrange your displays. If you don't want the color key on the CRT,
you need to re-think your configuration.
