Is that a true 2 screen setup ? That is: on screen 1 your DISPLAY variable
is :0.0 and on screen 2 it is :0.1 .
Or is it more Xienerama setup ?

I did a test with my matrox. When I set DISPLAY to :0.1 , vdr softdevice
was shown on the other screen but no video :-( , when toggleing 
fullscreen the window stayed on that screen. With DISPLAY :0.0 I got
video, and fullscreen toggle works as expected (fullscreen on :0.0).
