0x2ff = 767 = 768 - 1
768 is the default startup width.

So you can try to:
a. start in full screen mode "-vo xv:full", which adjusts width and
   height to available max values (720 width in your case I guess).
b. choose software OSD blending (via OSD :-( ) or via setup.conf:
   softdevice.OSDalphablend = 1
