The problem is that overlays are only supported on a single head of
any current dual-headed card (A hardware limitation, not a software
one). Until this situation changes, you will have to restrict Myth to
using the primary head of the card only (Using the "Gui Size" options
to restrict the size of the application and/or the rendering window).
