I think this is a problem with the nvidia driver.  The default color for 
the video overlay is blue so it outputs blue for resolutions that do not 
take up the whole screen.  You have to use the xvattr command to set the 
overlay color to black:

xvattr -a XV_COLORKEY -v 0

You may have to install xvattr.
