this would not be a problem, because the video has to be full screen on
screen 1 or full screen on screen 2, not on both at the same time, and
not half on one and half on the other screen.

This worked fine on a  M9 radeon, that also has only one overlay, but it
doesn't seem to work on the i810. I have one LCD panel connected to the
LVDS output, and one to a VGA output, it works on the LVDS output, but
on the VGA output it stays blue.

The VGA/CRT is Pipe A en the LVDS/LFP is Pipe B.
